JT10 Directional Drill

Powered by a Tier 4, 66-hp (49 kW) Deutz® diesel engine, the JT10 is the most powerful drill in its class. A Tier 4i option is available for less regulated countries.

For maximum strength and durability, the JT10 provides 1,100 ft·lb (2066.7 Nm) of rotational torque.

The engine is air-cooled and quiet for simplified maintenance and longer operation.

The JT10 comes standard with a 16-gpm mud pump or an optional 20-gpm mud pump, for better mud flow and performance, allowing operators to jet and complete larger-diameter reams on smaller jobsites.


An onboard fluid tank holds 40 gal of fresh water, providing additional fluid for short bores and easy cleanup. It also allows operators to effectively drill in tight spaces where an additional fluid mixer wouldn’t fit.

The JT10 holds 324 ft (98.8 m) of drill pipe onboard to improve productivity and allow operators to finish virtually any utility installation job.

The JT10 has the quickest cycle times in its drill class. The machine’s slow zone is shortened increasing cycle times and allowing operators to put more pipe in the ground faster.


The JT10 is equipped with a heavy-duty anchor system and integrated remote tracking display—features usually only seen on larger drill units.

The JT10 is the shortest drill in its class, giving it the ability to effortlessly maneuver in tight jobsites.

Small, compact machine is easy to transport from jobsite to jobsite with a rear ignition for faster jobsite setup.


A field-proven rack-and-pinion thrust drive with a welded-on double rack reduces operator maintenance, increases reliability and improves sturdiness.

The machine’s open-top vise wrenches are angled toward the operator for an excellent view of the tool joint and require no daily maintenance.

With no grease zerks and easy access to all service points, maintenance is simplified on the JT10, helping to keep the machine out of the shop and on the job.

The drill pipe lubrication system is a standard feature allowing operators to drill for longer periods of time and improve uptime.


A newly designed operator's station is equipped with an ergonomic traversing seat, positioning the operator near the center of the pipe rack for easy-to-reach pipe handling.

The new ergonomic seat is designed to reduce operator strain and keep the operator comfortable for long hours on a job.

An advanced operator display provides a clear view into all engine diagnostics for boosted performance and productivity.

The JT10 is equipped with a single joystick for quicker and smoother operation, freeing a hand for operators to focus on other tasks, including controlling mud flow and jobsite communication.
