Ditch Witch® Partners with Utilicor Technologies
Utility contractors need not bring heavy and physically demanding equipment like jackhammers and backhoes for every utility maintenance project that requires asphalt or concrete repairs. Instead, they can operate a nimble, construction-grade Ditch Witch mini skid steer fitted with the new Utilicor MTC100 coring attachment to perform repairs, without rerouting traffic or exposing large areas of open excavation.
The MTC100 was developed in partnership with Utilicor as the first product entry into the coring market for the Ditch Witch organization. Designed to work exclusively with the SK-line of mini skid steer units (the SK800, SK1050 and SK1550), the MTC100 can quickly and accurately cut up to an 46 cm diameter hole and 56 cm depth, minimizing surface disruption. Vacuum systems are then used to excavate down to the utility for maintenance that can be performed from the road surface using special long-handled tools. Once the underground work has been completed, the original core is bonded back into the pavement as a permanent pavement repair for minimal surface disruption – no patching or repaving required.
Coring techniques offer significant cost and time savings. Today, keyhole coring technologies are approximately 50% less costly than traditional excavation repairs and disposal removal. And, roads can be reopened to traffic within 30 minutes of repair completion.
In addition to the MTC100 coring attachment, Utilicor provides the market-leading reinstatement material Utilibond™. Capable of supporting a load of up to 22,680 kg in just 30 minutes, this specially engineered pavement-bonding compound, results in a permanent pavement repair that reduces public inconvenience, requires no additional paving materials and is field-proven to be effective for more than 10 years.
Utilicor products are now available through the Ditch Witch global dealership network.
