Ditch WitchJ 922
April 1, 2008

The Ditch Witch JT922 offers the highest power-to-size ratio in the 9,000-lb (40 kN) pullback category. A full foot shorter than its nearest competitor and also boasting a higher carriage speed and greater pipe capacity the new JT922 is easy to set up and operate in tight spaces such as backyards and alleys, and its size also makes it easy to transport. This unit combines the simplicity and easy operation of smaller drills with advanced features-like a heavy-duty anchor system, open-top vise wrenches, and an integrated remote display. This is a directional drill that is easier to maneuver in tight spaces but still had plenty of power to do long bores. It holds up to 300 feet of pipe, the carriage travels at 188 feet per minute. The operator’s station is midway down the drill frame and at a 90-degree angle to the rack, so it’s easier to handle the pipe. And the seat slides fore and aft, so you can get closer to the pipe rack.
