A pit-launched, laser-guided tool, Vermeer's AXIS boring system offers underground contractors a new option for trenchless installation of water and sewer lines.
A pit-launched, laser-guided tool to install 10- to 14-inch-diameter pipe, the AXIS boring system from Vermeer offers underground contractors a new option for trenchless installation of water and sewer lines. With the ability to push or pull product pipe in place, the system consists of a power unit, rack, vacuum pump and vacuum tank. As rotation and thrust from the carriage assembly continues, the drill stem is pushed through the hole. The process is repeated with numerous sections of drill stem until it reaches the exit pit. The new Vermeer guided boring system can complete bores up to 350 feet in length.
The D60x90 S3 horizontal directional drill has 60,000 pounds of thrust/pullback and 9,000 lb.-ft. of rotational torque.
The newest addition to the Toro horizontal directional drill (HDD) product line—the DD4050—features 5,000 lb.-ft. of rotary torque
