Irrigation Ditch Leveler

 

an implement with a two-blade working member for leveling temporary irrigation ditches and field ridges. The leveler is mounted on a tractor and, as the unit moves along a ditch, the blades cut up the soil and shift it into the ditch at a rate of up to 3,000 m/hr. In addition to the blades, irrigation ditch levelers, which are part of the set of interchangeable equipment for a ditch-digging-leveling machine, have a backplate for leveling the soil and a roller for compacting it. This type of irrigation ditch leveler is attached to an all-purpose frame mounted on a tractor; it has a capacity of up to 4,200 m/hr.
