Double-Wheel Ditchers

Double-Wheel Ditcher "BIG STORM"

Machine with strengthened frame and double-disk rotors

Cosmeco wide range of rotary double-wheel ditchers have been designed and developed for many different water management purposes, such as excavation, maintenance or cleaning of collector ditches and furrows. Thanks to their rotors equipped with knives and plates, the soil is crumbled up and then removed. The earth can be thrown several meters away, or be positioned beside the dyke edge by account of the special adjustable hoods available on demand. The newly created ditch proves to be defined and chiselled, and makes the water flow away from unwanted areas or distribute itself along irrigation networks.

Our “BIG STORM” double-wheel ditcher was born as an internal and entirely unique Cosmeco project, and holds so far the world record for its dimensions and power. It is a perfect example of quality at the highest level and excellent construction accuracy, the whole structure is visibly bigger compared to a standard ditcher: by weighing 2.000 Kg, it’s the most colossal and vigorous machine of its kind. The strong and big rotors equipped with knives and blades work perfectly when opening and creating large-sized ditches, even reaching a depth of 145 cm. The double-wheel ditcher “BIG STORM” is suitable for a continuous and demanding applications, typical of the subcontracting market or if the job has to be done on vast fields, as it offers a top-quality performance even in difficult soils with rocks and stones, whilst also diminishing costs and time when compared to all other excavation systems.

Technical Aspects:

  • Gearbox in a single-piece fusion with double shaft;
  • Transferbox inside the gearbox and at the rear of the transmission, to grant a major alignment of the cardan shaft;
  • Peculiar structure of the double-disk rotors, composed of 4 sectors;
  • Curved knives for a great performance in any kind of terrain wet, dry or compact;
  •  2nd / 3rd category three-point hitch (standard)
  • Adjustable depth through the tractor hydraulic lifting system
  • Rotor diameter: 180 cm each
  • No. 24 of knives and plates for each wheel
  • To excavate a new ditch, more passes may be required, depending on soil consistency, the tractor power and the forward speed
  • The frame is fixed, the machine works only in a central position

Main Strenghts:

Main Strengths:

  • The strengthened frame makes it a high-performance ditcher, much more resistant than a standard double-wheel ditcher;
  • The rotors composed of 4 sectors simplify the repair and the maintenance, with no need to remove the whole rotor;
  • Indestructible, tested on fields with the presence of rocks which reached 30 cm-diameter;
  • Obviates to the operations of levelling piles or ridges of dirt left by scrapers, bulldozers and excavators
  • Top-notch performances even with residue deposited at the bottom
  • Adjustable hoods for removed soil management
  • Maximum yield with minimum power absorption

Standard Equipment:

Cardan shaft with safety bolt – Cardan shaft with friction clutch – Additional hoods – Hydraulic cylinder 3rd point – Rear small wheel road transit
