A ditcher is a machine that digs ditches, usually by piling up dirt in a bank along its side. This is accomplished by a conveyor belt system that has been fine-tuned to operate at the same pace as the digging so as to create an easily-managed row of dirt along with a uniformly smooth trench. Though they have taken many forms and shapes throughout history, ditchers serve one purpose: to save mankind its back muscles by leveraging the mechanical strength of machines.
Ditchers have been used in history for many decades and have had many sources of energy. From being literally man-powered to animals to the fuels we use today, ditchers found their place wherever trenching and excavating needed to be done. Naturally, the agricultural and construction industries have utilized and pioneered ditcher technology for their respective fields. With the outbreak of modernized warfare in the 20th century, ditchers were put to work carving trenches into even the most clay-packed earth to keep soldiers safe. With the advent of modern machining, ditchers have never been more reliable or more efficient in their craft and can be found all around the world in just as many different shapes and sizes depending on the industry’s needs.
