About us

Ditch Witch New Zealand - Main OfficeDitch Witch New Zealand (DWNZ) was founded in 2011 as the NZ Distributor for Ditch Witch Underground equipment. Our Head Office is situated in Mt Wellington, Auckland in a 600m2 building with workshop and warehousing capability, it is from here we co-ordinate our daily business activities which include spare parts support, service support and sales functions. Our Auckland Head Office is staffed by three employees with a fourth salesman based from Christchurch.

Ditch Witch New Zealand is a NZ registered company operated as a wholly owned subsidiary of Ditch Witch Australia Ltd. DWNZ source and order Ditch Witch machinery and spare parts direct from the CMW factory in Perry, Oklahoma, we also deal direct with the factory for After Sales support. As the NZ distributor we order and source goods direct from the factory however through our connections with Ditch Witch Australia we enjoy the added benefit of being able to source machinery and spare parts inventory quickly from Australia if, and as needed. In addition to parts and machines we can also draw on the vast resources available from the experience of the Australian factory trained staff.   

The Ditch Witch product range is a varied and broad range with three main machine groups – Trenchless, Trenching & Electronics. Ditch Witch are world renowned for their Trenchers and Directional drills, complementing these staple products is a broad range of Plows, Vacuum Excavation units, skid steers, tool carriers and electronic locating or guidance equipment. Given this broad product range Ditch Witch can supply a machine no matter what the task in hand is.  

In 2010 Charles Machine Works purchased HammerHead Inc, this acquisition has broadened the product range even further allowing Ditch Witch dealers to market the highly reputable HammerHead Product range. HammerHead offer Pipe Bursting Equipment, Pipe jacking Equipment, Piercing Tools and the ever expanding range of HDD Downhole Tools.  

Completing DWNZ’s specialist Underground focus is our representation as an authorised distributor for Bariod Drillings Fluids. Bariod are known worldwide as the market leaders in Drilling Fluids and we are proud to be associated with them. We stock commonly used drilling fluids while also offering technical support and know how to help you get the job done.  

DWNZ was established from the outset with experienced staff who are familiar with Ditch Witch machinery and the New Zealand customer base, this has ensured a seamless transition to the new operation and has ensured customers have familiar faces to rely on. Ditch Witch New Zealand was founded as a One Stop Underground shop, we are proud to be the only specialized Underground Construction Equipment supplier in NZ and we operate on the founding belief that customer support is paramount in ensuring both ours, and our customers, success.
