Hurricane Ditcher Company, Inc.

Hurricane Ditcher Company serves professional farmers as well as state and county municipalities. We are a manufacturer of quality ditching, terracing and waterway management equipment. Hurricane Ditcher is a family owned business and was founded in 1984 by Paul M. Snyder and his son, John L. Snyder. The original facility was a small shop located in Carlisle, Indiana. Over the years, the company has expanded their production capacity and moved to Vincennes, Indiana where they occupy nearly 22,000 sf and employ 18 full-time employees. Now in our 32nd year of operation Hurricane Ditcher has ditchers in 31 states and 10 countries worldwide. In these times of corporate takeovers and struggles, Hurricane Ditcher is proud to be family owned and operated and will strive to continue to manufacture the most efficient, highest quality ditching, terracing, and waterway equipment available.

Hurricane Ditcher & Machine Control

Hurricane Ditcher has teamed up with Advanced Geo Positioning Solutions and now has  the capability to provide Precision Control of our Side-Arm ditchers using GPS.  In the past a fixed offset between the receiver and the cutting edge was needed.  On a Side-Arm the offset changes as the arm extends out.  The equipment  senses that movement and automatically recalculates the offset.  We can now offer Precision Machine control of location, elevation and grade and better yet  the information is stored making it repeatable.  The ditch can be maintained as needed using the stored data. The system can also  be adapted to use on our 3 Pt. 42 and Model 24 ditcher/terracer.
