Wolverine Extreme

“For years I have heard farmers complain about the equipment available for ditching their fields to control runoff,” recalls Adolf Vaags, a retired farmer and independent equipment salesman from Dugald, Manitoba. “They would talk about the piles of dirt and the tractor tire ruts left behind when using a scraper and how hard it was on equipment when they have to go through these ditches later. Some would even farm around the ditches to avoid going through the ruts. I was aware of the rotary ditcher design but knew I could do better. I wanted to build a ditcher that would cut a flat bottom like a scraper, throw the dirt to the left or right, include driveline protection for the tractor and ditcher, work in heavy clay soils and be super heavy duty to last for years.”

“Between 1999 and 2007 many prototypes were built to get the machine to work in heavy clay soils. In 2007 two of my sons joined the company and we started our first production run in 2008. By the end of 2014 we will have about 275 machines across North America, two in Europe and two in Australia. Many of these machines have over 1000 hours on them and our customers are thrilled with their performance. We listen to our customers and their input has helped us improve the Wolverine. It’s more durable than ever and we’ve added some requested features. Our top notch employees manufacture the Wolverine with the highest quality to ensure performance is second to none. It’s the best ditcher money can buy.”
