  • Innovative Design
    Innovative Design

    Exclusive assisted makeup and breakout feature: JT30 automatically adjusts speed when making up and breaking out drill pipe, saving wear on pipe threads and reducing operator fatigue.

    Field-proven, heavy-duty rack and pinion thrust drive; welded-on double rack offers minimum maintenance and maximum reliability.

    With a narrower width (80 inches/2 m, w/o cab) than the competition, the JT30 is a higher-horsepower drill that can operate in tighter spaces.

    Advanced electronic system features improved diagnostics and customer-recommended electronic functions.

  • Power

    160-gross-hp (119-kW), Tier 4 engine is the most powerful in its class; full power to all machine functions greatly enhances your overall productivity.

    Equipped with 24,800 lb (110 kN) of thrust and 30,000 lb (133 kN) of pullback force for efficient installation in tough soils.

  • Productivity

    Automated, intuitive carve mode reduces operator fatigue and error and is compatible with industry-leading TriHawk® HD housings and bits for exceptional efficiency and productivity.

    Heavy-duty anchor system enables you to push or pull with full machine thrust and depend on the JT30 remaining in place; better machine stability while drilling means a quick and more productive bore.

    Industry-exclusive, double-pivot drill frame allows steep entry angles without raising the tracks off the ground—no need to constantly readjust the machine even when the terrain is muddy or steep.

    Hinges on main and rear hoods allow easy access to all service points in the engine and mud pump; rear mud pump cover allows you to operate in colder conditions.

  • Operator's Station
    Operator's Station

    Visibility enhanced by open-top vise wrenches and improved operator station; wrenches are angled toward the drill operator for an excellent view of the tool joint when making and breaking pipe, and all drill functions are clearly visible from operator station, with or without cab.

    Quietest directional drill in its class (max. 85 dBA operator sound pressure), so there’s less environmental impact, less disruption in urban areas and greater operator comfort.

    Optional cab features climate-controlled heat and air, for greater operator comfort and productivity.
