    The RotoWitch® boring attachment results in fewer disturbances, less labor, and less restoration than tearing up driveways and sidewalks to complete an installation.

    Our easy-to-operate backfill blade is much faster and less expensive than shovels, increasing productivity and rental revenue.

    Ditch Witch also offers the S2B Trailer, a single-axle design with a full-width steel deck, with ramps for easy loading and unloading of equipment of up to 5,700 lb (2586 kg).

    No daily grease points—a Ditch Witch exclusive—means less hassle and prep to keep your trenchers rental-ready.

    Standard outboard bearing support stabilizes the headshaft and auger, for reliable productivity trench after trench.

    Simple, open design allows for quick, easy service access.
