For drilling in rock, you need a HDD machine that can take on tough jobs in tough ground conditions.

The new D23x30DR S3 Navigator® horizontal directional drill helps lead the way in rock drilling and continues the legacy of the S3 badge – speed, simplicity and sound. Adding to the Vermeer lineup of rock drills, the D23x30DR S3 offers dual rod technology in a compact yet powerful machine that enables operators to confidently and efficiently manoeuvre through rock in congested cities, busy neighbourhoods or tight job sites.

Building on the dependability of the D23x30 S3 horizontal directional drill, this rock drill offers a short and narrow footprint and quiet power for operator comfort while minimising job site disturbance. Common controls can help operators transition smoothly into rock drilling from a single rod machine, while new tooling options can offer precise steering and maximised wear life to help provide optimised job site productivity.

The D23x30DR S3 rock drill delivers impressive power that can help you bore through challenging ground conditions and keep you rocking on a demanding job site.

Features of the Vermeer D23X30DR HDD

  • Drill head - A 2-degree bend located in the forward section of the RH10 offers responsive steer on command.
  • Quick pullback grapple - The toolless PG5 quick pullback grapple helps reduce the need to remove the drill head for installing small-diameter product pipe(s).
  • Rock quietly - This rock drill follows the S3 sound badge, offering a noise level that can help with operator comfort and crew communication, as well as help create a quiet working environment to reduce disturbance in neighbourhoods and other populated urban areas. 
  • The D23x30DR S3 HDD machine can track up to 3.4 mph (5.5 km/h) - Manoeuvre around your job site quickly to prepare for the next shot and complete your installation.  
  • The D23x30DR S3 has a carriage speed of 175 ft/min (53.3 m/min) and rotational speed of 200 rpm - The carriage and rotational speed can help with quick rod exchange and can enable crews to stay efficient and install more linear feet per day. Match your rotation speed to tooling for optimal performance and life.
