Directional Drilling

Directional drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling is a trenchless method of installing underground pipelines, cables and service conduit.

We have a Ditch Witch directional drill for every job. We complete installation in small urban areas with housing restrictions. General longitudinal work such as under road crossings and have the correct drill to tackle tougher jobs, dealing with much harsher terrain. You can often find us on one of these machines in the central North Island.

Our trenchless drilling diameter ranges from 15mm – 500mm.
