Productivity

Narrower operational width provides greater maneuverability and productivity in tight spaces. Intuitive, easy-to-use carve mode simplifies operation and improves productivity, making it exceptionally easy to install pipe and cables of up to 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter at lengths of up to 500 feet (152 m).

Features &

Innovative Design

Simple, field-proven pipeloading system with a lower center of gravity helps increase stability. Dual-pivot drill frame allows for steeper entry angles without raising tracks off the ground.
