2019 Hurricane Ditcher 3-PT 42 Base
2019 Hurricane Ditcher 3-PT 42
The 3-PT 42 is our largest 3-Point ditcher. It is designed to work in extremely trashy conditions such as sod or stalks. The standard ripper tooth is designed to loosen debris and/or hard, dry soil for smoother machine operation.
The 42″ 9-paddle impeller wheel (digging wheel) consists of 9 heat treated cutting edges and 9 hard-surfaced paddles that are designed to be resurfaced as they wear. It does have shear bolts should a large immovable object be struck.
The gearbox components are easily accessible by removing the rear or side access cover plates. The gearboxes consist of large shafts, heavy-duty sprockets and bearings, and double 80 roller chain; all enclosed and running in an oil bath. The external idler adjustments are used to maintain proper chain tension.
