Ditch Witch 8500 Guidance System
March 25, 2008

The Ditch Witch 8500 guidance system, which consists of an 8500T tracker, 8500D display, and 850-series beacons features an intuitive interface with easy-to-understand graphics. In designing the 8500, simplifying the usage of the system was among the main priorities. The user interface is amazingly intuitive, he says. It guides the user throughout the tracking process. It even tells you how to calibrate. From its unique shape to its long list of innovative features, the 8500 is like nothing else on the market. There are several features that make the 8500 more accurate and easier to use than any other guidance system out there. One is its offset locating and depth-reading ability. With this feature, the user can determine depth and horizontal offset alongside the beacon. So you can track along the side of a road while drilling next to it, and track around trees, brush, and other obstacles.
