Ditchers

From coupler to cutter head, AMCO makes a better Ditcher. Our Ditchers are reliability tested, field proven, and perform in wet or dry conditions. Rebuild and contour terraces, clear roadside ditches, or direct water away from crops with this top-performing tool.

We have five models to choose from: AD, AD10, AD20, AD30, and AD35. All models are shipped from the factory completely assembled and ready for work.

They feature:

  • Four replaceable high-carbon steel cutter heads that have been heat treated and rotate at 740 RPM. Driving the cutter head is a dual, heavy-duty, endless double #80 roller chain with 1″ pitch that runs continuously in a sealed oil bath
  • A chain drive constructed of 6″ x 10″ x ¼” tubing welded into the rigid, one-piece, all-welded main frame. Each chain drive also has an adjustable idler sprocket with case-hardened teeth
  • A-frame construction with category II and III 3-point hitches and quick-hitch compatibility
  • Our standard parking stands that allow you to park your Ditcher in the upright position for easy connect and disconnect
  • AMCO’s standard buster shank to rip through tough dirt, allowing penetration to the desired depth and clean passage for the cutter head
  • A standard adjustable skid so you can dig ditches in single or multiple passes
