To enhance utility contractors’ productivity while drilling through hard rock, Ditch Witch recently introduced the AT32 All Terrain horizontal directional drill (HDD). The mid-size drill replaces the AT30 and provides greater power and easier system operation for increased operator efficiency and profitability.
Utility Contractor sat down with Ditch Witch’s HDD Product Manager Jeff Davis to gather more information on the specs of the AT32. You can view the video below or follow this link.
“The AT32 is in a class of its own,” said Jeff Davis, Ditch Witch HDD product marketing manager. “It fills a gap in the mid-size HDD market, bringing full-size power to the jobsite without the full-size footprint. The result is a more accessible, compact and versatile machine that provides boosted productivity on a variety of rural and urban jobsites.”
The AT32 features 4,200 foot-pounds (5694 N·m) of outer rotational torque and 1,200 foot-pounds of inner rotational torque – 29% and 50% more, respectively, than its predecessor – to help contractors stay productive on the job. With 32,000 pounds (150 kW) of thrust and pullback, the AT32 provides the power and stability necessary for efficient installations through tough ground conditions. The drill is powered by a 155-horsepower Cummins Stage V diesel engine that meets European emissions standards for a cleaner jobsite.
