Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is a trenchless method of installing underground pipelines, cables, and service conduit.
We have a Ditch Witch directional drill suitable for every job. We complete installation in small urban areas with housing restrictions, general longitudinal work such as under road crossings, and we have the correct drill to tackle tougher jobs, dealing with much harsher terrain.
Our trenchless drilling diameter ranges from 15mm – 500mm.
We use a state-of-the-art GPR locator prior to engaging in any ground works. This gives us the confidence to ascertain any existing service cabling and ensures we maintain our goal of zero harm – zero strike.
In the most basic sense, we put the pipe in the ground, and aim to do so with as minimal disruption as possible.
The Ditch Witch JT10 horizontal directional drill (HDD) boasts unbeatable power in a compact, yet sturdy frame for easy transportation and improved manoeuvrability on tight jobsites. The JT10 is deployed for drilling up to 100m and is perfect for our smaller projects including jobs under road crossings, tight situations, and urban Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) installation.
The JT30’s are our most powerful directional drills and are used for tackling the tougher jobs, dealing with much harsher terrain in all types of job conditions. This powerful machine is equipped with sufficient thrust and pullback force for efficient installation in tough soils.
