Overview

Our newest S3 drill model — the D60x90 S3 — offers the next generation of power and control. Designed with operator ease and comfort in mind, it is significantly more powerful and quieter than its predecessor — with the interactive Aurora™ digital display to help you get the job done faster and more efficiently.

The D60x90 S3 packs all these valuable benefits into a modest footprint — making it an ideal fit for large commercial or confined urban jobsites.

With up to 60,000 lb (266.9 kN) of thrust and pullback — an impressive 17 hp (13 kW) increase over its previous model (D60x90) — the D60x90 S3 is the drill that will take your operation to a whole new level of productivity.

Features and Benefits

  • Modest footprint of just 100” (254 cm) transport width and 26' length (7.9 m) makes it right for a range of installation specifications — even in congested urban jobsites. 
  • Up to 60,000 lb (226.9 kN) of thrust and pullback and 9250 ft-lb (12,202.4 Nm) of rotational torque help you get the job done faster.
  • Guaranteed sound power rating of just 107 dB(A) – 12 dB(A) lower than its predecessor the D60x90 – resulting in reduced noise at operator’s ear [83 dB(A)], increased operator comfort and less noise disturbance in residential or urban areas.
  • New interactive, full-color DigiTrak® Aurora™ touchscreen display allows operators to load the bore plan via flash drive and view it on screen — eliminating hard copy plans.
  • Large open-top vise design allows passage of larger tooling for ease of tool removal and installation.
  • Popular and proven rod loader design provides easy and reliable performance.
