Vertical Ditchers

Bilateral Vertical Ditchers

Machinery with mobile frame for vertical ditches excavation

The different models of Cosmeco vertical ditchers are, without a doubt, an interesting modernisation for what concerns water control and management, as well as drainage, irrigation or excavation of trenches where to lay the pipes.

The vertical rotor makes a slit in the ground, and thanks to the peculiarly curved knives the dug material gets collected and removed, finally the rear shaper completes the cut by compacting its base and walls. The result is nearly perfect, the vertical walls remain well-defined and smooth, requiring close to none further maintenance. And even if the cut appears closed on the surface, the bottom remains open and the excess water, which usually damages cultivations or hinders the adequate work on land, keeps flowing.

Cosmeco vertical ditchers are crucial allies not only for drainage, but also for subsurface irrigation, a very effective system for a precise underground water distribution, laying pipes underground or placing electrical cables for solar parks. Due to their light weight and reduced size the smaller models can operate in young orchards and vineyards, as well, all without damaging the roots, moving only as much soil as strictly necessary.

The Cosmeco bilateral vertical ditchers are equipped with a mobile frame which allows the operator to excavate new ditches or do some maintenance work, behind both tires of the tractor, or any intermediate position between them. According to the customer’s choice the movement can be either performed mechanically or through a hydraulic cylinder. This special mobility visibly facilitates the operator during difficult situations that require particular digging positions, which would not be practicable with a standard ditcher frame. For these reasons our vertical ditchers are successfully used both inside or outside greenhouses, or simply to earth up the film on tunnels edges.

Technical Aspects:

  • Left repositioning: 68 - 80 cm ; Right repositioning 48 - 80 cm
  • Direct drive gearbox
  • 2nd category three-point hitch (standard)
  • Adjustable depth through the tractor hydraulic lifting system
  • The cut width changes based on the knives different positions on the rotor

Main Strenghts:

  • Great versatility thanks to the moveable frame, hence the possibility to dig in many different positions.
  • Suitable for all kind of soils
  • Adjustable hood for removed soil management
  • The small dimensions and the minimum weight, permit their use with low-power tractors
  • High-quality performance both in open field or greenhouse
  • The peculiar shape of the ditch makes it less bulky
  • Better water control and management
  • Airing of the roots
  • Much more cheaper than a trencher

On Demand:

Cardan shaft with safety bolt – Hydraulic cylinder 3rd point – Hydraulic reel support and tube guide putting it underground (tube ø10cm max.) – Filling scraper – Complete knives kit for cut width ranging from 8 to 16 cm - Tungsten coated knives for hard soils


We also design and develop on demand solutions, in order to satisfy all of our customers’ desires and requests: widened chassis, special lead angles, extra accessories or any kind of particular equipment which are not part of the standard production line.
