JT60 ALL TERRAIN Directional Drill
Every Ditch Witch All Terrain directional drill stands apart from competitors by virtue of its patented, two-pipe All Terrain drilling system, which delivers more power to the bit than any other rock-drilling system in its class, resulting in unbeatable productivity in the widest range of ground formations. With the JT60 All Terrain, you also get a uniquely powerful combination of rotational torque, thrust and pullback, plus intuitive carve mode and many other features requested specifically by customers.
Key Features
  • Patented All Terrain technology has the industry’s most advanced inner-rod design, proven to increase production in hard rock and difficult terrain.
  • 60,000 lb thrust and pullback and 9,000 ft•lb rotational torque—the powerful combination you need for outstanding productivity on big installation jobs.
  • Designed for greater uptime with a simple, durable, customer-driven design.
  • Choice of a 190-gross-hp Tier 3 or 200-gross-hp Tier 4i Cummins® diesel engine.
  • Onboard, enclosed 150-gpm fluid pump for productive drilling at greater distances; flow rate can be operated simultaneously with thrust/pullback and rotation.
  • Double rack-and-pinion thrust drive is field-proven and designed to push/pull through the long, tough bores.
  • Fully enclosed, climate-controlled cab features instrument panel gauges positioned for visibility, conveniently placed controls and an excellent view of the tool joint.
  • Simple, intuitive carve mode reduces operator fatigue; compatible with superior TriHawk® HD housings and bits for exceptional productivity.
  • Proven, industry-leading pipeloading system is simple, easy to use and designed to increase speed with automation, saving you time, money and effort.
  • Heavy-duty, planetary-driven anchor system enables you to use full machine thrust when needed, improving jobsite productivity.
  • Two-speed thrust drive motors provide exceptional low-speed drilling control as well as higher speeds necessary for rapidly loading drill pipe.
  • Dual-pivot drill frame allows steep entry angles without raising the tracks off the ground—no need to constantly readjust the machine even when the terrain is muddy or steep; enhances operator comfort because operator’s station stays level.
  • Dual rear independent stabilizers give you confidence to set up on uneven terrain.
  • GPS is a standard feature of the JT60 All Terrain, allowing for online location and utilization tracking of assets, along with machine service, hour and location alerts.
  • Easy to service, with all daily maintenance points in one location that is easily accessed through removable doors.
  • Open-top vise wrenches are angled toward the operator for an excellent view of the tool joint when making up and breaking out pipe.
  • Operator’s station features intuitive joystick that controls all drilling functions, ergonomic seat, color LCD engine display, and an excellent view of all drill functions.
  • SaverLok™ System provides the tightest connection and best protection against wear and tear on the drill pipe and drive system; easy to install and replace, requiring no special tools.
  • Compatible with the TK Series HDD Guidance System, which enables you to cut through noise and complete bores with an unprecedented level of confidence.
