Vermeer Armor Drilling System for Small HDDs

December 31, 2012

The Armor Drilling System from Vermeer is now available for smaller horizontal directional drills (HDDs) ranging from 16,000 pounds to 24,000 pounds of thrust/pullback.

Contractors now have access to a complete line of bit options that are easily interchangeable to adapt to varying ground conditions during a bore, helping eliminate the need to purchase multiple housings and tools for different applications and processes, Vermeer says.

The Armor Drilling System features multiple bits, each specially configured to battle a range of ground conditions. The bit-mounting design utilizes a solid pin for bit retention and for ease in bit interchangeability and maintenance. The housing is constructed with dual water ports that deliver up to 70 gpm at 800 psi of mud flow to effectively carry cuttings out of the bore hole.
