Ditch Witch has released its SaverLok System, a patent-pending saver sub system, designed to offer a connection that protects against wear and tear on the drill pipe.
The SaverLok System ensures torque is carried through dowels instead of threads. The system consists of a SaverLok, collar or flange, and a gearbox connection. It is replaceable in the field, and it fits in a standard truck toolbox. When properly assembled, the SaverLok System is as reliable as a single-piece saver sub, with large O-rings to help ensure proper sealing, the company says. When replacing SaverLoks on Ditch Witch All Terrain drills, seal kits do not have to be disturbed or handled. The system is made from high-strength steel.
