Downhole Directional Drilling Tools: Ditch Witch

March 2010 Vol. 65 No. 3

The Aggressive Talon Rock Bit is a multi-use bit manufactured for HDD applications in a variety of soil conditions, including sandstone, shale and chunk rock.

The bit’s original tapered head beacon housing has been replaced with a thread-on shank that will provide even greater reliability and durability in tough digging conditions. The Aggressive Talon Rock Bit features four replaceable carbide-tipped cutting teeth in front of the tool that enable it to operate more smoothly with less drill pipe chatter than other multi-use bits. The angle of the cutting teeth enables it to more effectively carve into rock. Carbide buttons in the abrasion-resistant, steel-bit body reduce wear when working in tough conditions. 580.336.4402, www.ditchwitch.com
