Sooner, simpler HDD tooling connections with Vermeer Extremely X3 drilling systemDowel pins, fairly than splines, be a part of the tooling to the rod for faster change outs.Vermeer

Vermeer has expanded its horizontal directional drilling instrument lineup with the brand new Extremely X3 Drilling system for utility-size rigs. It makes use of a non-torqued spline connection and is appropriate for a variety of pilot bit and pullback configurations.

By eliminating a spline-type connection, the tooling doesn’t should be threaded on, and there’s no want for breakout tongs to make and break the torqued tooling connections. To affix the instrument to the rod, you merely align the spline on the tooling with the spline on the housing after which safe the 2 items by tapping within the dowel pins.

The system is able to dealing with reaming diameters as much as 10 inches in most situations from the transmitter housing. It’s additionally arrange to make use of a full providing of plate bits and rock tooling just like the Vermeer Gauntlet, Lance and single curler cone bits.
