Vermeer D23x30DR S3 Delivers
in Rocky, Congested Environments

Vermeer's new D23x30DR S3 Navigator horizontal directional drill (HDD)
integrates dual rod technology into a compact machine design to efficiently
maneuver through rock in congested cities, busy neighborhoods or tight job
sites. Featuring a class-leading narrow footprint and a weight of 16,500 pounds,
the D23x30DR S3 is the lightest rock drill on the market. It is well-suited for fiber,
electrical, gas and water installation in hard rock, as well as other challenging
ground conditions.
The Vermeer Firestick drill rod dual system onboard the D23x30DR S3 gives
operators a 7 percent downhole steerability. The unit's threaded outer rod has
a rotational torque of 3,000 foot-pounds, while its hex inner rod delivers up to
800 foot-pounds. The D23x30DR S3 is powered by a Deutz TCD3.6L4 diesel
engine and a thrust/pullback of 24,000 pounds.
New rock tooling further enhances D23x30DR S's performance and
productivity in rocky ground conditions. The Vermeer RH10 drill head provides
responsive downhole steering with a two-degree bend located in its forward
section. The drill head can be fitted with a 5.5-inch tricone bit or polycrystalline
diamond compact (PDC) bit that is greaseable and can be rebuilt in the field.
Vermeer also offers a PG5 quick pullback grapple mounted over the top of the
RH10 and tricone bit to help reduce the need to remove the drill head after the
pilot bore when installing small-diameter pipes.
"For utility installation work in rocky soil conditions, HDD contractors traditionally had to choose between using a larger rig, bringing in more equipment
so they could use an air hammer, or go slowly and potentially sacrifice productivity," said Tod Michael, product manager of trenchless products for Vermeer.
"The new D23x30DR S3 is a better option for doing small-diameter installation
bores in rocky ground conditions."
As part of the Vermeer S3 Navigator HDD series, the new D23x30DR S3 delivers on speed, simplicity and sound. The drill has a carriage speed of 175 feet
per minute and a rotational speed of 200 rpm. The operator's station combines
familiar, convenient-to-use controls with the latest dual rod advancements
through the use of controller area network (CAN) technology, which also
provides onboard diagnostics and a reduced amount of wiring and fuses.
Additionally, with an operator ear noise level of 83 db(A), the D23x30DR S3 has
a quiet working environment for the crew and surrounding neighborhood.
The D23x30DR S3 is Vermeer Fleet-ready and easy to service. When
activated, Vermeer Fleet provides contractors with even more productivity
features, including fault recognition, geofencing, fuel usage and more. When it
is time to service the machine, a large rear hood offers convenient access to the
mud pumps and other service points, while the open-top vice makes it easy to
change out die with rod in vice and have visibility of the joint. *

John Deere Excavator Features Grade
Guidance Tech

Power and precision converge with the new grade-guidance-technology-equipped John Deere 470G LC Excavators. First introduced for the
210G LC and 350G LC excavators, John Deere developed this solution in
cooperation with Topcon Positioning Group.
The integrated grade guidance system provides the bucket's location
in relation to a 2D reference or 3D design surface. This information arms
operators with the detail they need for precision excavation projects,
such as digging trenches for pipes, shaping ditches or slopes, or digging
structure foundations.
"Accuracy and productivity are critical to our customers, and the new
integrated system provides them with just that," said Jonny Spendlove, excavator product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry.
"With this integrated solution, the system's sensors are protected from
damage and the display is conveniently placed in the cab. Additionally,
this technology is fully supported by the customer's John Deere dealer,
eliminating downtime and expediting earthmoving operations."
Equipped with a display in the operator station, the grade guidance
system provides operators with the elevation and position of the bucket
cutting edge with respect to a target plane (2D) or design surface (3D).
Support through the JDLink telematics system provides information on
system utilization and allows rapid diagnosis of problems. *
