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.
Vermeer has added to its RTX line of rubber-track trenchers with the RTX450, powered by a 49-horsepower Tier 4-Final engine.
Vermeer has introduced its first horizontal directional drill with a Tier 4-Final engine, the D9x13 S3 Navigator HDD.
