How Does It Work?

  • The Ditto Valve™ Kit has no reels or batteries! It uses patent pending HydWire™ hydraulic hose assemblies to bring power and control to the carriage.
  • HydWire™ hoses fit in existing over-the-mast hose reeving & look like any other hose, but capture the wire reinforcement for use as an electrical conductor.
  • The Ditto Valve™ Kit uses a distribution valve that you mount on the carriage or attachment. Our Low Profile valve practically disappears from view between the fork bars!
