Designed to minimize support equipment and maximize operator efficiency, the self-contained D200x300 Navigator horizontal directional drill from Vermeer Manufacturing Co. integrates the power pack, operator’s station and crane with a rack-and-pinion design in order to offer 30,000 foot/pounds of rotary torque and 200,000 pounds of thrust and pullpack capability. All functions, including transport, drilling controls, crane and drilling fluid controls, are operated from the attached, climate-controlled, two-man operator’s station. The D200x300 also features a hydraulic fold-up scaffold that allows for transport on one truck. Vermeer Manufacturing Co.
