Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is a demanding industry, where having the best equipment on the market has been and remains essential to a company’s success.
Bench Direction Drilling and Civil purchased its first direction drill in 2010: the Ditch Witch JT2020. Twelve years later and several machines on, director Barry Pringle is still a proud and loyal Ditch Witch customer, praising the supplier’s capacity to help his business maximise on profit and performance.
“When looking for a machine in the civil and construction industry, you need to take a range of factors into account, such as longevity, service and durability. When I saw what Ditch Witch had to offer, it was a pretty simple choice,” Pringle explains.
The longevity of the Ditch Witch machine is second to none. Built tough to last through the long and often difficult days in the civil industry, these machines are designed to withstand harsh conditions without compromising on performance.
The JT20 Directional Drill is packed with plenty of power in a compact footprint, helping operators to work more efficiently, thereby tackling more jobs. The JT20 has a turbocharged 74-hp engine that produces less noise onsite, making it among the quietest in its class. Its slim yet durable profile allows for greater manoeuvrability, allowing you to tackle more jobs in tight places.
“We need machines that we can rely on and people who understand the machines, allowing us to maximum results day in, day out,” says Pringle. “When you work in this industry, you understand how important it is.”
Pringle says that over his career, Ditch Witch has not faltered in reliability or execution; their customer service also continues to be second-to-none. “For over 12 years, Ditch Witch CEA has been able provide great aftersales service as well as manufacturers backups and parts availability,” says Pringle.
The JT20 directional drill has an advanced cooling system that uses five fewer gallons of fluid than competitive systems, offering exceptional efficiency and reduced environmental impact, while an industry-leading cruise control system simplifies drilling and back reaming.
“We have a range of Ditch Witch machines that have been purchased over time. Our collection has grown into over eight various machines that all allow us to make difficult days easier,” says Pringle. “But one of the main advantages has been the training provided on the machines with purchase.”
