The JT100 produces 268-hp (200-kW) which makes it an incredibly powerful machine, but it’s not just the power which makes it so productive—it’s how the power is distributed. The JT100 is designed to deliver power where it’s needed to complete the bore in the most efficient manner, without compromising power to the other machine functions. There’s plenty of power for an optional pipebox loader and onboard anchor system as well which eliminates the need for additional equipment for pipeloading, anchoring, and other tasks which gives the JT100 a unique ability: the power to reduce the size of the jobsite.
With 100,000 lb (445 kN) of pullback and 12,000 ft·lb (16270 N·m) of torque, the JT100 is the ideal HDD unit for long bores, such as river crossings, and installations of large-diameter pipe.
The exclusive Ditch Witch heavy-duty anchor system eliminates the need for large and expensive support equipment, reducing transportation costs, setup time, and jobsite size.
Large-capacity, 230-gpm (870 l/min) fluid pump plus larger hoses and fittings help move fluid downhole faster, for greater productivity; special damping feature reduces the downhole shockloads associated with greater fluid flow.
