Compact Drill with Enhanced Features
August 1, 2009
The D9x13 Series II Navigator horizontal directional drill (HDD) from Vermeer Corp. is intended for confined jobsites and areas where surface disturbance to turf is a concern. The new HDD unit has 300 feet of onboard rod-carrying capacity, allowing for the completion of long distance bores. The D9x13 Series II is available with either a 9 gpm at 750 psi or 15 gpm at 750 psi onboard drilling fluid pump. The undercarriage with oversize tracks helps evenly disperse machine weight, and with 5.5 psi of ground pressure, surface disturbance to turf-sensitive areas should be minimal. Powered by a 47-HP Kubota turbocharged diesel engine, the D9x13 Series II produces 9,000 pounds of thrust/pullback force and 1,300 ft.-lbs. of rotational torque.
