Overview

Introducing a new direction in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) — the D24x40 S3 carries on a proud legacy of reliability. The D24x40 set the industry standard in 1993, and in 2015, there are even more reasons it’s the trusted choice to meet contractors’ right-size, right-power needs.

With 28,000 lb (124.6 kN) of thrust and pullback and 4200 ft-lb (5694.4 Nm) of rotational torque — an increase over its predecessor (D24x40 Series II) — the D24x40 S3 helps maximize machine and jobsite productivity, while class-leading cycle times help get the job done faster.

Features and Benefits

  • 28,000 lb (124.6 kN) of thrust/pullback and 4200 ft-lb (5694.4 Nm) of rotational torque help operators get the job done faster.
  • A class-leading carriage speed of 240 ft/min (73.1 m/min) helps contractors install more linear feet per day.
  • A 270 rpm rotational speed rivals larger drills in a footprint ideal for urban or narrow jobsites.
  • A 104 dB(A) guaranteed sound power level and an operator ear rating of 82.9 dB(A) makes it one of the quieter drills on the market — contributing to less neighborhood disturbance.
  • The excavator-style cab provides operators greater comfort with more legroom. 
  • The DigiTrak® Aurora™ full-color touchscreen display delivers real-time easy-to-view locate information and more.
