Ditch Witch says its new JT922 horizontal directional drill offers the highest power-to-size ratio in the 9,000-pound pullback category. Measuring one-foot shorter than its nearest competitor, the machine is said to have a higher carriage speed and greater pipe capacity as well. It holds up to 300 feet of pipe (more than 100 feet more than the closest competitor), and the carriage travels at 188 fpm. The unit is designed to set up and operate in tight spaces while being easy to transport. It features rack-and-pinion thrust drive, heavy-duty anchor system, open-top vise wrenches, and an integrated remote display.
