Firestick® drill rod

Vermeer Firestick drill rod has earned a reputation in the industry for strength and consistent quality. Firestick drill rods are made from forged and heat-treated, high-carbon alloy steel. The robust threads and double-shouldered design stand up in high-torque applications, while maintaining a large inside diameter to maximize drilling fluid flow.

Silver Series™ drill rod

When straightforward, less-aggressive projects require a budget-conscious option, there’s the new Silver Series drill rod. Comprised of one-piece forged, S135 grade steel, and threaded in the same state-of-the-art facility (located in the U.S.) as the Firestick drill rod, it is designed for moderate steering applications. Together, the Firestick drill rod and Silver Series drill rod provide trusted options for any project.

QuickFire® connection system

A solid connection is the foundation to productive drilling. The Vermeer QuickFire connection system uses a Vermeer original design, born from the same technology that created the industry-leading Firestick drill rod. The QuickFire connection is forged from high-alloy material and an industry-unique heat-treatment process for durability and reliability. It’s available in multiple sizes for drilling rigs rated up to 5500 ft-lb (7455 Nm) of torque.

Fluted reamers

Vermeer fluted reamers conquer the job with a robust through-shaft design and heat-treated, cast-alloy steel for durability. Vermeer fluted reamers include robotically applied carbide mesh grit for extended life. Available with rotary or shark teeth to create an aggressive cutting action and ideal for rugged ground conditions ranging from hard pan and soft rock to cobble.

Ace™ bits

Vermeer offers an extensive selection of Ace bits designed for various soil and ground conditions. Vermeer Ace bits are designed with durability and wear-ability in mind. The plug-style tooth design of the Ace bit allows teeth to be positioned closer to each other to help maximize carbide coverage for extended wear-life.


The premium Ace bit features an aggressive tapered bit front to help penetration rates and offers superior durability, longevity and wearability for high risk, aggressive ground conditions such as heavy cemented cobble, hard packed soils and softer shale.

A step up from our standard Ace bit, it features a semi-aggressive tapered front design for penetration in harder ground conditions — offering even greater durability, longevity and wearability to tackle loam to moderately aggressive cobble, sand and hard pan.

The standard bit features a rounded bit face to assist steering performance and offers durability, longevity and wearability for softer ground conditions that are more abrasive, medium packed soils and light gravel.
