Sliding tracks adjust outward for improved stability in uneven terrain. With the tracks returned to the inward position, the D16x20 Series II has a compact footprint which allows entry to confined jobsites and side-by-side trailering with many modular drilling fluid mix systems models.
Operator’s station. The D16x20 Series ll integrates primary drilling functions into an operator’s station designed for increased operator comfort and productivity.
Big Power, Small Footprint.
horizontal directional drills have helped
thread the utilities which make up our modern
infrastructure. Vermeer continues the tradition
with the D16x20 Series II, designed with
intelligent features on a compact frame.
Powered by 65 hp (48.5 kW) Kubota diesel
engine providing 16,000 lb (7257.5 kg) of
thrust/ pullback force and 2,000 ft-lb
(2,711.6 Nm) of torque, the D16x20 Series II
brings performance to a wide range of bores.
Designed with a similar configuration to
other Vermeer HDDs, precise fingertip controls
are mounted on two joysticks within the
comfortable operator’s station. A one-piece
hood provides easy access to the engine
compartment and hydraulic components.
provides high flow in larger-diameter bores
and increases efficiency while backreaming.
Plus, the pump doubles as a high-pressure
washer for quick cleanup at the end of the day.
Horizontal Directional Drilling System
AutoDrill allows the operator to set thrust/pullback speed, thrust/pullback pressure, or rotation pressure mode while drilling in changing soil conditions. The patent- pending Auto Resume function allows slurry/cuttings to mix before thrust/pullback resumes.
