For the 2020 release of the Wolverine, we have focused on adopting customer suggestions to improve the build quality and long-term durability of our ditcher. The suggestions we’ve addressed include; improving the chaincase design to improve sealing and to reduce water intrusion, increasing the life span of the chaincase oil and components; increasing visibility and durability of the gate indicator with an extended, bolt-on indicator; and re-positioning the PTO holder to ease transportation and storage while providing increased clearance for tractors with quick connect three-point hitches. For More Information on the updates:
Improved Gearbox Side Chain Case Seal Plate
- A new gearbox side sealing plate with a bolt-on flange extending the entire way around the chaincase reduces water intrusion and eases installation and removal.
Bolt-on Gate Indicator
- The new indicator has over 2x the material through the bend for superior strength and is 6” longer for increased visibility.
Redesigned PTO holder tube
- Mounted the PTO holder tube further back for increased clearance between the PTO holder and three-point hitches.
Modified GPS Mount Plate
- Increased strength of the plate and added an additional bolt pattern to accommodate more GPS systems.
