McCloskey launches into HDD market
McCloskey International unveiled a new product division at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The McCloskey Trenchless Equipment Division will supply Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Equipment to oil and gas, construction and development companies, as well as utilities including communication, power, gas and water.
“Through this new division we position ourselves well in the North American HDD market as we continue to develop and deliver products that boost productivity and profit for our customers,” says Paschal McCloskey, President and CEO of McCloskey International. “The drilling business is a natural fit for us.”
The newest member of McCloskey’s family of products, the McCloskey TR-14 Horizontal Drill Rig, sets a new standard in HDD with the most torque and horsepower in the smallest footprint in its class. An advanced electric hydraulic system delivers more horsepower to the ground, better fuel efficiency and guarantees 14,000 lbs of thrust/pullback while simultaneously delivering 1,600 ft lbs of torque rotation.
The TR-14 and TR-40 boast a fully featured microcomputer supporting internet and satellite communications, while interactive diagnostics alert operators to service and supply needs, as well as when to order parts and regularly scheduled maintenance.
