Vermeer says it’s setting a new standard for horizontal directional drills with its D220x500 S3 Navigator.

The new drill delivers up to 54,000 lb.-ft. of torque at a spindle speed of 36 revolutions per minute, as well as 240,400 pounds of thrust/pullback. It’s designed for large-diameter water and utility installs in urban areas, and can take on challenging pipeline work as well.

The D220x500 S3 is available with an onboard cab or stand-alone operator cab, and with a 20-foot to 30-foot (6.1-m to 9.1-m) rod rack. Contractors can also choose between a rod stager or full-length catwalk.
