Ditch Witch offers new JT60 and JT60 All Terrain directional drills
By Anthony Capkun
January 28, 2014 – Ditch Witch introduced two new horizontal directional drills—JT60 and the JT60 All Terrain—equipped with 60,000 lb of thrust and pullback, plus 9000 ft-lb of rotational torque.
Powering each drill is your choice of a 190 hp (gross) Tier 3 or 200 hp (gross) Tier 4i diesel engine, both of which promise sufficient power for each drill’s mechanical and hydraulic components, including an onboard 150-gpm fluid pump that helps ensure productive drilling at greater distances. Both machines come factory-equipped with Ditch Witch GPS at no additional charge. (Ditch Witch and U.S. Fleet Tracking are providing the hardware, installation and one year of premium service as a special promotion for JT60 customers. Users of the system are able to remotely view engine hours, operational hours, service reminders, machine location, and various other performance criteria.)
