Ditch Witch Trencher Safety

The first mechanized, compact trencher was invented in 1949 by Ditch Witch Power. This trencher immediately simplified the process of installing underground utility lines for electricity, gas, and plumbing, which previously relied on the manpower of picks and shovels. Today’s models lead the industry and have been proclaimed as one of the best American-made products in the world.
