Ditch Witch released the Web-based Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Advisor tool that allows users to determine the appropriate tooling configuration for their Ditch Witch or Vermeer directional drill string.
“It gives drill operators the confidence to quickly and correctly select downhole tool options – everything from the SaverLok to the drill pipe to the backreamer – to match the drill unit they’re using and soil conditions on the job,” said Jaime Wines, director of parts sales and marketing, Ditch Witch.
The new HDD Advisor also includes the option to save drill string configurations for future reference and streamline ordering of replacement parts. Operators can share their drill string configurations with their dealer of choice, and print or email summaries from a PC or mobile device.
To increase the value for operators, both Ditch Witch and Vermeer drills can be selected within the tool.
