Machine is $35,000 +gst with any spares we currently hold in stock
Plough complete with blades is $15,000 +gst

If you are serious about trenching, don’t go past a Ditchwitch. I have been in businesses for over 35 years and always had Ditchwitch products. Designed and built to last.
This machine is all American steel, no plastic, no light weight copy here. 70hp Deutz powered machine.
When I ordered it (from new) we specified reduction planetary hubs, 4 wheel steer, extra hydraulic ports for running further options both front and rear, 6-way blade for back-filling, hydraulic side shift on trencher, 70,000lb chain and cutters. Also we have chain spaces to widen out cutters. Currently cutting 6inches (150mm) but can go out to 9 inches (280cm) with current spaces - This is American.
Just had new fitted cutters, chain and bearings fitted. Ready for many 1000’s of yards (metres).

We also have a vibrating mole plough that we imported specifically for this machine that swaps over on rear of machine with a handful of bolts, change hydraulic lines over and you are ploughing. We had a number of blades made for various applications. Ideally set up for Telecom/coms cable, which we have done some of, but mainly also used for ploughing in frost piping into vineyards. Plough has not done a lot of work and I would consider selling separately but not preferable as it is set up to be used as a unit.

If you want a quality machine suitable for hard work, check out this machine. In ideal conditions, you wont keep up to the machine when laying pipe, even has a type of operator activated cruise control. In one job alone we laid 80kms of pipe without a hitch.

Really good service and parts (not that you use many) from Ditch Witch New Zealand in Auckland.

We have changed the direction of our business and so this machine is now just sitting in the shed. We also have a tarpaulin made to fit, to keep it covered if left on site.
