The Wolverine Extreme is poised to revolutionize farm earth moving by combining scraping and spreading of the soil into a single operation. Making and maintaining ditches, waterways, and terraces is now done faster and more efficiently, which saves the farmer time and money. The Wolverine can work in all soil conditions similar to the conditions required for using a scraper or other earth moving equipment. The Wolverine can also make ditches throughout the growing season if required, compared to a scraper that only is used to make ditches in the fall.
I believe the Wolverine will out work a scraper by about three to one,” Manning Alberta farmer Keith Greschner declared. He’s owns the Wolverine and ran it for 140 hours last fall with his 855B Cat Challenger. His tractor has 385 PTO horse power, more than enough to run the ditcher which is designed for 350 PTO HP. “The Wolverine works very well for us because the dirt and straw get beat up by the paddles and then the impeller spreads it out nicely.” “Our scraper didn’t work very well in the heavy trashy straw and if we had to use it, it would leave lumpy piles all over the place that were a real nuisance to try and smoothen out later.” “With this machine the finish is smooth because there are no piles to deal with,” says Greschner. “I believe a lot of farmers in our area will be buying the Wolverine to make their ditches.”
Because the Wolverine moves so much soil in a short time, the ditches can be made a lot wider, making it easier for large seeding, tillage and harvesting equipment to operate through and around the ditches. The machine can be controlled by using a laser or GPS system as an attachment that will control the cutting blade depth for a perfect slope.
The Wolverine was invented by Adolf Vaags a retired farmer from Dugald, Manitoba, Canada. Two of his sons and one other partner now run the company.
The ditcher is built heavier than any other ditchers on the market and has patented features that put it in a class of its own. It’s ideal for agricultural use, and it has the potential for municipal drainage work and road construction development.

How does it work?
The Wolverine has a five foot wide cutting blade and cuts between two – six inches per pass. The dirt then goes through a spiral rotating kicker that breaks up the dirt and directs it into a sixty inch diameter rotating disc with paddles on it. The Wolverines rotating disc spins the dirt out at 270 RPM’s flinging the dirt from 75 – 150 feet in either direction. (can be to the left or right). The machine has two wheels on the back that can be adjusted independently to control the depth or slope required. With a 350 HP tractor the Wolverine can eject 700 to 900 yards of dirt in one hour depending on soil type and conditions.
1.8 Million Pounds of Dirt per hour.
The sixty-inch diameter rotating disc has four paddles that fling the dirt out at 270 RPMs. At that speed the rotating disc goes around four and a half times per second. With four paddles hurling dirt out four and a half times per second that equals eighteen times per second that dirt is ejected. There is about twenty-eight pounds of dirt being tossed by each paddle when the machine is loaded. So if you take twenty-eight pounds of dirt per paddle and fling it out eighteen times per second that equals 504 pounds per second or 30,240 pounds per minute or 1,814,000 pounds per hour. The conversion of 1,814,000 lbs of dirt equals 900 yards per hour that the ditcher can move.
How far we have come.
By the end of 2015 there will be about 400 Wolverine earth-moving machines on farms in the United States, Canada and Australia. We are continually adding more dealers to completely cover the territory. We are now working with a distributor in the US that covers 15 key states and also a distributor in Australia.
Since 2013 the machines are performing even better than the expectations that we set out when we started in 2008. We have updated many of the previous models to the model we now call the Wolverine Extreme. We have worked closely with our customer and made many improvements to achieve our goal. Making a machine that can work in all soil types and in wet and dry conditions is a huge achievement. Making it stand up to the large high horsepower tractors for hundreds of hours without failing is an even bigger achievement. There were many times along the way we looked at each other and thought it cannot be done, but literally with blood, sweat and endless determination we did not give up and now we are very proud of the Wolverine Extreme. There is no better feeling than when a customer comes up to us a farm show and they shake our hand and tell us how much they love our machine.
