Low-noise horizontal directional drill powers through tough conditions

As an extended-range, self-contained machine with 30,000 pounds of pullback, Ditch Witch‘s JT3020 Mach 1 horizontal directional drill has the capacity to bore pilot holes up to 4.5 inches and backream diameters up to 12 inches. The JT3020’s fluid pump delivers 42-viscosity drilling fluid at 50 gallons per minute for drilling efficiency. Its 148-horsepower engine automatically turns the horsepower up to power through tough drilling conditions, while emitting less than 82 decibels audible to the operator’s ear. Other features include a rack-and-pinion thrust drive and a redesigned anchor system to support the entire operation.
