Features & Benefits

Impressive size

Modest footprint of just 100-in (254-cm) transport width and 26-ft (7.9-m) length makes it right for a range of installation specifications — even in congested urban jobsites.

Increased power

Up to 60,000 lb (226.9 kN) of thrust and pullback and 9250 ft-lb (12,202.4 Nm) of rotational torque helps you get the job done faster.

Significantly quieter

Guaranteed sound power rating of just 107 dB(A) – 12 dB(A) lower than its predecessor the D60x90 – resulting in reduced noise at operator’s ear [83 dB(A)], increased operator comfort and less noise disturbance in residential or urban areas.

DigiTrak® Aurora® touchscreen display

New interactive, full-color DigiTrak® Aurora® touchscreen display allows operators to load the bore plan via flash drive and view it on screen — eliminating hard copy plans.

Large open-top vise

Large open-top vise design allows passage of larger tooling for ease of tool removal and installation.

Convenient rod loading

Popular and proven rod loader design provides easy and reliable performance.
