Product SpotlightJohnson Drainage Plows are built to withstand the rigors of ripping through the soils of your field without pre-ripping. This original design (not a copy) had its birthday in 1986. Even then it was built as a pull type plow. This design allows for pulling with multiple tractors via the dual hitch. It is pulled completely by the draw bar. These plows can easily pull around curves and corners. You've heard and read all the benefits to installing drainage tile in your fields. Now it's time to work with the best. Johnson Drainage Plows is the only plow manufacturer that designs, builds, and uses the plows on his own farm. Continuous improvements for my customer's needs. I am in the business of making well constructed plows. Plows that easily hold grade, because of their well built design.

Product SpotlightEdwin Erickson, Sr's fields flooded in 1997. When low spots filled with remaining water, Erickson came up with an idea — why not make a ditcher that doesn't leave side ridges, allowing excess water to drain freely off the land? After extensive testing and modifications, the Eagle Ditcher won first place in the Agriculture category of the 1999 South Dakota Inventor's Congress. The Eagle Ditcher is designed to keep your crops from drowning in any low-lying areas by eliminating the problem areas altogether. In fact you can cut ditches in standing water — once you know an area is prone to flooding, you won't have to wait for it to dry before fixing it. The Eagle Ditcher's dirt deflector lets you control how far your soil will be thrown — anywhere from just one foot away all the way up 150 feet away from the ditch or terrace you're working on. It will save your crops from drowning in those wet areas and eliminate those problem areas altogether. This piece of machinery can cut from 1 - 36" deep and can cut 2-5" at speeds of 2 to 4 mph depending on tractor horse power. The 48" wide cutting edge lifts and drops the soil onto the spinner, where it is then thrown out of the machine either to the left or the right, depending on your preference. Increase cutting width to 60" with wings.

Product SpotlightThe design of the Ditch Angel allows the operator to ditch in many positions. With the use of hydraulic cylinders, operated from the cab of the tractor, it is easy to adjust the depth and distance the ditcher is cutting to get the desired ditch. The impeller can reach 11' from the center of the machine out to the side and a maximum of 5' deep. The Ditch Angel™ is a side arm ditcher. It comes equipped with a 26" ditching wheel. The ditcher operates in dry or wet conditions. It blows soil 30'-50' out the right side of the machine. A hydraulically controlled deflector is standard on all side-arm ditchers to keep material diverted away from machine and operator. A tail wheel assembly is optional for the Ditch Angel™. This assembly helps support the weight of the machine and add stability while operating the machine. The top link of the Ditch Angel™ (not pictured) is designed to telescope. This allows the machine to float while being operated on rough terrain instead of being hooked rigid. The counter balance weight is adjustable on the Ditch Angel™. It can be positioned backwards (manually) to gain more clearance for transporting or storage. The counter balance can also be equipped with a hydraulic cylinder. The hydraulically controlled option allows the operator to slide the counter balance from the cab.
