Features & Benefits

More length per day

An increase in carriage speed of almost 11% over its predecessor allows for faster cycle times and improved jobsite productivity.

Improved rotation performance

Improved rotation performance helps boost productivity — an increase in spindle speed of up to 16% over its predecessor allows for a better mud slurry, enabling better mud flow while pulling in product in softer or reactive ground conditions.

Get to work faster

A maximum ground drive speed (forward) of up to 3.3 mph (5.3 km/h) with optional wireless remote makes it faster than the closest competitor — helping make job setup times, jobsite entry and jobsite departure go more quickly.

High rotational torque rating

A high rotational torque rating of 1500 ft-lb (2033.7 Nm) and 10,000 lb (44.5 kN) of thrust/pullback force provide the versatile power required for tough ground conditions and pulling reamers.

Compact but powerful

An almost 50% increase in tractive-effort-to-weight ratio over its predecessor enables improved tracking up and down ditches and enhanced maneuverability when fine-tuning setup and trailer positioning.

Reduced noise levels

Reduced noise levels at operator’s ear makes a quieter working environment possible — creating less neighborhood disturbance and enabling easier communication among the crew.

Small footprint

Small footprint — 4 in (10.2 cm) narrower than its closest competitor — allows the drill to easily maneuver within narrow jobsites and position side by side with a mix system on a trailer.
