Ditch Witch, a Charles Machine Works Company, announces its partnership with Utilicor Technologies, Inc. to bring the benefits of advanced keyhole technology and reinstatement to contractors, municipalities and utilities. Utilicor products are now available through the Ditch Witch global dealership network.
The MTC100 coring attachment was developed in partnership with Utilicor as the first product entry into the coring market for the Ditch Witch organization. “The new MTC100 coring attachment will complement our portfolio of mini skid steers and vacuum excavation equipment for work under paved surfaces," said Randy Rupp, Ditch Witch vice president of product strategy, "and it gives cities and utilities a quick, money-saving advantage.”
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 18-in.-diameter hole and 22-in. 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.
Utilicor also provides the reinstatement material Utilibond. Capable of supporting up to 50,000 lbs. in just 30 minutes, this specially engineered pavement-bonding compound results in a permanent pavement repair that is field-proven to be effective for more than 10 years.
“Utilicor is pleased to partner with the industry-leading Ditch Witch organization, allowing us to expand the reach of our coring and reinstatement technology through their highly-respected, global Ditch Witch dealer network,” said Marshall Pollock, President and CEO, Utilicor Technologies, Inc. “Both of our companies have spent years developing customer confidence in our brands, and we’re fully committed to providing exceptional support and service to our customers. This agreement reaffirms that commitment.”
