Blade Selector

Each of the MT12’s four saw blades is specially designed and manufactured by the Ditch Witch organization to cut precise, narrow trenches in asphalt in one quick, efficient pass. But no single blade provides optimal performance on all surfaces. The MT12 Blade Tool Selector helps you instantly determine the ideal blade(s) for your jobsite. Simply select your blade size—indicating trench width—and hit “Submit.” Blade performance is ranked in terms of cutting speed, bit life, and blade wear, and according to digging conditions ranging from soft asphalt to concrete.

Service

There's a department at your Ditch Witch dealership dedicated to service—the best you'll find anywhere, by the way—but service is really the focus of every employee there. Whether it's regularly scheduled service or an after-hours emergency, servicing a whole fleet of Ditch Witch machines or some other brand of equipment, our mission is the same: doing whatever it takes to get you back on the job as quickly as possible. That's the difference between ordinary service and Genuine Ditch Witch Service.
