Vermeer Bore Pilot
October 30, 2007

Vermeer introduced Bore Pilot, a horizontal directional drilling (HDD) tutorial on CD that provides civil engineers, contractors and operators with essential information to operators before, during and after the boring process. Contractors can also use the pulling load calculator to calculate the required pulling load for a specific HDD project based on the type of pipe used; pipe diameter and total bore length. The calculator will also recommend the appropriate size of drill based on the bore specification entered for the project. A soil classification guide helps contractors determine the project sites soil type and match the appropriate drill bit and backreamer. It also includes a fluid-mixing process map that shows how much mud should be used based on soil conditions, drill unit and tooling used.
