Ditch Witch FM25 Fluid Mixing System Supports HDDs

Tue May 13, 2008 - National Edition

The Ditch Witch FM25 system mixes the drilling fluid in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations. The FM25’s design simplicity and multiple configuration options accommodate a variety of setups and make transport easy, and its 25-hp (18.7 kW) Kubota diesel engine provides sufficient power to support even the largest Ditch Witch HDD systems, according to the manufacturer.

The FM25’s Venturi wet hopper is designed with steeper sides to allow fast, thorough fluid mixing. Operators have a choice of one or two hoppers, 500- or 1,000-gal. (1,893 or 3,785 L) tanks, and a fuel fill on both sides, allowing flexible setup configurations on a trailer or truck. Optional accessories, including an anti-siphon tank fill and an umbrella kit, enhance the FM25’s versatility.
