Customer comments l.jpg
Customer Comments

  • We have been providing the Ditch Hitch to our field operations and have received excellent feedback from those who have used them. The ditch hitch provides a safe, simple and effective way for connecting a tow strap to the vehicle.

    British Petroleum

  • We now carry the Ditch Hitch in all our Peace Country Business unit vehicles, and with the addition of a specific procedure on where, when and how the Ditch Hitch is to be used we have all but eliminated "Towing Related" incidents.


  • The Ditch Hitch is safe, lightweight, user friendly and in my opinion, the best towing solution available today. Thanks for a great product.

    Husky Energy

  • The Ditch Hitch is truly by far the safest recovery system that I have seen to date. The safety features and ratings you have engineered into this product are exceptional and I would recommend this product to anyone who would ever require to be towed.
