D23x30DR S3 HDD

For drilling in rock, you need a machine that can take on the tough jobs in tough ground conditions.


The D23x30DR S3 Navigator® horizontal directional drill helps lead the way in rock drilling and continues the legacy of the S3 badge – speed, simplicity and sound. Adding to the Vermeer lineup of rock drills, the D23x30DR S3 offers dual rod technology in a compact yet powerful machine that enables operators to confidently and efficiently maneuver through rock in congested cities, busy neighborhoods or tight jobsites.

Common controls can help operators transition smoothly into rock drilling from a single rod machine, while new tooling options can offer precise steering and maximized wear life to help provide optimized jobsite productivity. The D23x30DR S3 rock drill delivers impressive power that can help you bore through challenging ground conditions and keep you rocking on a demanding jobsite.
