Features & Benefits

The new quiet

A 99 dB(A) guaranteed sound power level and an operator ear rating of 78.7 dB(A) makes it one of the quietest drills on the market — creating less neighborhood disturbance and enabling easier communication among the crew.

Need for speed

A carriage speed of 206 fpm (62.8 m/min) helps operators install more linear feet per day. A 219 rpm rotational speed matches larger drills in the 20,000 to 30,000 lb (89 to 133.4 kN) class.

Common controls

Common control platform from Vermeer assists in operator efficiency and training.

Get to work faster

The D23x30 S3 can track up to 3.3 mph (5.3 km/h), helping operators get into position for their next shot more quickly, while the increased tractive effort makes it easier to climb slopes and make sharp turns.
