3-PT 20 Base
2019 Hurricane Ditcher 3-PT 20 Ditcher
The model 3-PT 20 3-Point ditcher is designed to provide an economical way to make surface drainage ditches using your own farm tractor. Like all Hurricane 3-Point models, the 3-PT 20 is equipped with parking stands for easy hook-up and disconnection. It can be used with Cat II or III quick hitch by moving the bushings to the desired location.
The 3-PT 20 can be used in any soil condition and is ideal for running in extremely trashy or wet conditions. More paddles on the impeller results in less shock on the ditcher and tractor resulting in smoother ditching and increased machine life.
The rear shoe (dragplate) gives the machine stability, helps prevent gouging, and helps form the ditch in loose or wet conditions. A heavy-duty ratchet jack is standard for adjustment of the dragplate.
The gearbox components are easily accessible by removing the top or side cover plates. The gearbox consists of large shafts, heavy-duty sprockets and bearings, and double 80 roller chain; all enclosed and running in an oil bath. The external idler adjustment is used to maintain proper chain tension.
Soil is thrown out the left side and may be distributed over a 50 foot area; rocks and other debris may go farther.
