The “Baby Side-Arm” is designed as an inexpensive and efficient way to clean roadside and drainage ditches. It is versatile enough to use for many drainage applications and can operate in dry or muddy conditions or anything in between.
The “Baby Side-Arm” was designed to clean and maintain roadside ditches and other drainage ditches that cannot be safely straddled with other ditching equipment. It’s 26″ 5-paddle impeller (digging wheel) is ruggedly designed to operate in ditches containing sod, water, roots and other debris without damage to the machine. It contains a shear bolt to protect the ditcher and tractor should an immovable object be struck.
The counterweight can be positioned manually for a narrower transport width.
The Baby Side-Arm is Cat II or III quick hitch adaptable.
The 26″ 5-paddle impeller (digging wheel) contains 5 hard-surfaced paddles that are designed to be resurfaced as they wear.
The Baby Side-Arm can be operated at a distance of 5 feet to 10 feet from the center of the tractor and at a depth of up to 5 feet.
Operating the Baby Side-Arm with a 100 HP tractor, 1 mile of ditch can be cleaned every hour, removing 7 to 8 inches of soil from the bottom.
