The DitchFeed systems capture water from a canal through a suction system. The cart can be situated at the end of the system or in the center, depending on the location of the canal and the surface to be irrigated.

In this case it is important for the path followed by the cart to have limited variation with respect to the water level in the canal. This way we avoid problems in the suction system like pump cavitation in the case of low water levels or the accumulation of air in the suction tube in the opposite case.

The fuel tanks in the cart have a greater capacity than other systems (1,700 to 2,000 liters) given the increased energy necessary to pump the water.
