Lots of new Ditch Witch machines were on display including the impressive RT115 Quad equipped with a Hydra Wheel 42-inch rock saw. The open house event was held at Ditch Witch of Tennessee’s Nashville branch located at 140 Charter Place in LaVergne, Tenn.

A steady stream of customers and guests made their way to the Ditch Witch of Tennessee Open House on June 15 at the company’s Nashville area branch. Dealer principal Ray Romano purchased the company on Sept. 1, 2010, and soon after added the Kubota line.

Romano said, “The open house event was held specifically for providing more product awareness for the Kubota line.”

Kubota representatives were on hand to assist with the day’s activities. Martin’s Barbeque, famous throughout the south catered the event. Special low pricing on new and used machines and reduced rental rates were available the entire day and prizes were awarded throughout the day as well.
