Single-Wheel Ditchers

Single-Wheel Ditchers

Machines with rotors for soil grinding and removal

The wide range of rotary-single wheel ditchers has been designed and developed by Cosmeco for several water management purposes, such as the excavation, maintenance or cleaning of collector ditches and furrows. Thanks to their rotor equipped with knives and plates, the soil is crumbled up and then removed. It can be thrown a few meters away, or be positioned beside the edge of the ditch on account of the special adjustable hoods provided on demand. The newly created ditch is sharp and chiselled, and it makes water flush from unwanted areas or flow through the irrigation network.

When equipped with a specific device, Cosmeco single-wheel ditchers are successfully used to cover-up the foil at the base of tunnels or greenhouses. By taking soil from different points, they obviate to the creation of an invasive central furrow.
