U.S. Drilling Products’ Directional Underground Boring Bit

December 2013, Vol. 68 No. 12

Manufactured in the United States from the toughest wear-resistant tungsten carbide, U.S. Drilling Products’ new Directional Underground Boring Bit is gaining attention for its rock-busting capabilities.

Ideal for creating six-inch underground, horizontal pathways for telecommunication, gas, cable and other utility lines, U.S. Drilling Products’ durable Directional Underground Boring Bit is saving contractors valuable time and money on the job site. The base is available in multiple hole patterns for mounting to Ditch Witch, Vermeer and other drilling machines.

The bit’s unconventional, patented design boasts 38 tungsten carbide boring tips aligned in three circular rows of varying height. This ensures that the pressure and load are equally distributed around the entire bit. The patented configuration also allows the boring bit to start cutting at a lower PSI (1,500) while the water jet enables the bit to be steered to bore the exact pathway that the operator wants. 855.455.ROCK (7625), usdrilling products.com
