The Job here was to clear out a heavily silted ditch line that had been causing drainage issues and flooding in periods of high rainfall on the surrounding land.
Historically brooks and ditches would have been routinely maintained every few years on farms during the winter months at times where traditionally there would have been a surplus in labour. Today however, as more mechanisation is employed most farms have minimal labour surplus at these times and often drainage and ditch maintenance ends up low down on the priority list.
Often ditches become overgrown by hedges and become difficult to access. We offer the complete solution to these problems as we can come in with the tree shear to cut back to allow access and follow on to clear out the ditch with the same machine with a ditching bucket.
