Ditch Witch of Minnesota was established as a Charles Machine Works distributor in 1965 and now is one of the top Ditch Witch distributorships in America. This privately-held company was located in Hopkins, MN, before moving to Shakopee, MN, in 1971.

President of the company, Warren Peiffer, along with his sons Weston and Wyatt, manage the daily operations of this growing business. In September of 2015 Ditch Witch of Minnesota acquired Ditch Witch of Iowa. We are now Ditch Witch of Minnesota and Iowa.

The corporate office is located in Shakopee, MN with three branch offices in Fergus Falls, MN, Huxley, IA and Davenport, IA.

Our distribution territory covers all of Minnesota and Iowa and 19 Western Wisconsin counties from Superior to Lacrosse and 13 counties in Western Illinois.  Our sales staff consist of five territory managers in Minnesota, and four territory managers in Iowa, and two compact utility specialists, one in each State. These experts can assist with your equipment needs and have the resources to be your partner in getting the job done.
