    DESIGN

    Features a powerful cyclone filter that removes fine particles during excavation minimizing maintenance.

    Utilizes environmentally friendly oil in air system reducing overall environmental impact when excavating.

    Air excavation system positioned under the deck for increased deck space and convenient access.

    Designed for minimal overall package height, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better handling during transport.

    Saddle-style tanks provide optimal weight distribution to keep payload over rear axle.

  • VERSATILITY

    VERSATILITY

    Endless excavation capability is not limited by fresh water availability. Air excavation uses dry spoils to backfill the hole when the job is done, eliminating the time and expense of liquid spoils removal.

    The versatility of having one unit with both air and hydro excavation systems allowing operator to utilize either function independently, depending on the demands of changing jobsite conditions giving you extreme productivity and efficiency.

    The Ditch Witch designed air lance utilizes full system capabilities of high CFM and pressure for greater excavation performance.

    Low pressure setting powers various pneumatic tools such as jack hammers, tampers, impact wrenches and chippers.
