  • Productivity

    The compact, maneuverable JT5 directional drill fits through a 36-inch (910-mm) yard gate; at 120 in (3.1 m) long, it can be set up on the street without blocking traffic.

    Convenient, pedal-operated lubrication system helps maximize the life of pipe joints and increase productivity.

    Hood removes easily for access to engine and service points, simplifying maintenance.

  • Innovative Design
    Innovative Design

    Innovative, heavy-duty anchor system keeps the JT5 secure during utility installation, reduces wear on pipe threads and enables better alignment of drill pipe during makeup.

    Patented vise wrenches are designed to center the drill pipe better every time and provide an excellent view of the tool joint.

    Specially designed drill pipe has a bend radius of up to 70 ft (21.3 m) and coarser, more durable threads so the pipe can level off at shallower depths.

    Field-proven rack-and-pinion thrust drive for low maintenance and reliability.

    Fuel tank is protected with a steel plate block and lock, for added security.
