Ditching wet or dry makes no difference to the new AMCO Ditchers. The Model AD-5 is designed for 50 to 110 PTO horsepower tractors, and the Model AD-10 or AD-20 for 80 to 150 PTO horsepower tractors. All models are designed for use with quick coupler.

You can dig ditches with single or multiple passes with the AMCO Ditchers, thanks to AMCO's adjustable skid.

Standard equipment parking stands hold your AMCO Ditcher erect for ease in disconnecting and connecting to your tractor, and a chain support keeps the PTO shaft properly positioned for easy connection.

All models of the AMCO Ditcher feature cutter head blades of replaceable, heat-treated, high-carbon special abrasive resistant steel; four triple-lip, sealed ball bearings; and a universal drive shaft, telescoping and fully shielded.

The chain drive is heavy-duty, endless double #80 roller chain with one inch pitch. The chain runs continuously in a sealed oil bath, and sprockets are case hardened on both models. The new AMCO Ditcher has an adjustable idler sprocket.

All models include ripper and ripper point as standard equipment.

All models are shipped from factory completely assembled and palletized.

Compare for yourself. From coupler to cutter head, AMCO makes a better ditcher.
