The JT40 directional drill from Ditch Witch is available with the option of a fully enclosed cab with premium heat and air capabilities, or an open operator’s station designed with integrated vandal covers. Both options have a premium ergonomic seat, extended legroom and place the operator at a 45-degree angle, which provides visibility of all critical vision points. The machine’s raw power, provided by a 160 hp, Tier 4 Cummins diesel engine, gives operators 20 more horsepower in a smaller footprint over competitive 15-foot drill-pipe models in its class. The unit minimizes pipe-entry distance, providing operators increased drill pipe support as it enters the ground. The optimized carriage speed gives contractors class-leading cycle times for faster utility installations. It holds up to 600 feet of drill pipe on board, allowing for longer bores and increased ROI. 800/654-6481; www.ditchwitch.com
