Horizontal Directional Drills

JT60 and JT60 All Terrain

The Ditch Witch organization introduces two new horizontal directional drills: the JT60 and the JT60 All Terrain. Each drill is equipped with 60,000 pounds (267 kN) of thrust and pullback plus 9,000 ft•lb (12,200 N•m) of rotational torque - a powerful combination that results in exceptionally efficient and productive installation of utilities.

Powering each drill is the contractor’s choice of a 190-gross-hp (142-kW) Tier 3 or 200-gross-hp (149-kW) Tier 4i diesel engine. Both engines provide sufficient power for each drill’s mechanical and hydraulic components, including an onboard, 150-gpm (560-l/min) fluid pump that helps ensure productive drilling at greater distances.

A climate-controlled cab, a heavy-duty double rack-and-pinion thrust drive, intuitive carve mode, easy serviceability, and many of the other features shared by these drills are results of direct input from customers. One feature unique to the JT60 All Terrain directional drill is the patented, two-pipe All Terrain drilling system that provides more power to the bit than any other rock-drilling system in its class, enabling the JT60 All Terrain to be more productive in the widest range of ground formations.
