Ditch Witch Introduces New Online Tool

A new online tool designed to help directional drill operators in determining the correct tooling configuration for their Ditch Witch or Vermeer directional drill unit has been introduced by Ditch Witch, a Charles Machine Works Company.

The company released the industry’s first Web-based Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Advisor tool on July 28.

“Time is money for our customers. That’s why we developed this easy-to-use, interactive tool,” says Jaime Wines, director of parts sales and marketing for Ditch Witch. “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.”

In the past, identifying the proper tooling for job sites was time-consuming, cumbersome and paper-intensive, according to Wines. The new tool, however, gives operators and dealers a tooling-product roadmap and recommends configurations and solutions based on a few questions.

The 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.

Both Ditch Witch and Vermeer drills can be selected within the tool. To view the tool, go to www.hddadvisor.com.
