JT25 Directional Drill

More Than A Drill. It's Your New Workhorse.

The Ditch Witch JT25 is an exceptionally powerful and productive horizontal directional drill designed specifically for—and with input from—the utility contractor. It features an exclusive rotational drive with 4,000 ft·lb (5420 N·m) of torque and 27,000 lb (120 kN) of thrust and pullback—just the ticket for utility backbone installs. But it’s not all power and brute force; the JT25 is the quietest and most stable mid-size drill on the market. Which is good, because you and your JT25 are going to be working together a long, long time.
