Become a Ditch Doctor® Distributor
Ditch Doctor® is growing
Ditch Doctor® is growing and looking for Owner Operators and Distributors in the United States, Europe and other countries. Interest from excavator owners, farmers, land owners and local municipalities is raising awareness of how the Ditch Doctor® can create, restore and maintain ditches. On this page you will find more information on becoming a distributor.
What is the Ditch Doctor®?
The Ditch Doctor® method is used to create, restore and maintain efficient ditches, and is gentle to the environment. It is an attachment used with a hydraulic excavator as a faster and more cost effective alternative to the conventional ditching method of bucket and excavator. One of the major benefits of the Ditch Doctor® method is that the spoil is self- leveling so there is no need for any additional handling of the spoil. It produces an immediately viable ditch requiring less maintenance once established and significantly reduces the impact on the local environment. The vegetation on the slope of the ditch is not disturbed preventing erosion of the evenly distributed spoil back into the ditch. The Ditch Doctor® method can also create a two-stage ditch and work in up to 3 feet of water.
