Ditch Witch directional drill delivers power, durability and stability
The evolution of Ditch Witch horizontal directional drills (HDD) continues with the launch of its newest drill, the JT24. Compact and powerful, the JT24 offers best-in-class stability and a modern design for ease of use in congested urban and residential jobsites.
Equipped with a 101-gross horsepower, Tier 4 and European Stage 5 Cummins diesel engine, the JT24 packs a punch with unbeatable power. The unit also offers 24,000 pounds of thrust and pullback while still maintaining a small footprint, offering outstanding performance on a wide range of urban and residential gas, fibre and other utility installations. A new hydraulic platform utilizes leading technology to maximize drilling efficiency and conserve horsepower for where it matters most – downhole.
"We continue to evolve our directional drill offerings to provide more efficient and productive modern solutions to meet the growing underground challenges facing today's HDD contractors," said Cory Maker, Ditch Witch HDD product manager. "The JT24 was designed based on direct customer feedback, manufactured to effectively maneuver and traverse urban terrains where much of the utility and rehabilitation work is happening today. All without compromising the power needed to get the job done, on time and on budget."
The JT24 is designed with a wider frame than competitive units, offering best-in-class stability without sacrificing maneuverability in tight urban environments, so you can confidently traverse uneven terrain and city curbs. And with its small footprint, it can easily be towed from one jobsite to another.
With a class-leading maximum carriage speed of 216 fpm, the machine enhances jobsite productivity by decreasing cycle times and increasing uptime. It also holds up to 400 feet of drill pipe onboard, allowing for longer bores on the job and increasing return on investment.
The machine's modern, next-generation design follows the same evolution of the latest Ditch Witch directional drills to enhance operator comfortability and ease operator use and training.
As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
