The Ditch Witch JT3020 All Terrain features all terrain technology, one of the Ditch Witch organization’s many patented innovations designed to simplify the HDD process. One of the company’s breakthrough innovations was the slant-faced drill bit, which revolutionized the industry by enabling HDD operators to steer the drill head. All Terrain technology improves upon the steering process with a patented dual-drive pipe system, which enables the JT3020 All Terrain to drill and steer at the same time. The inner pipe of the JT3020 All Terrain’s two-pipe drill string continuously turns the drill bit at 150 to 400 RPM, depending on the soil, resulting in exceptionally efficient boring.
