Vermeer D23x30 S3 Horizontal Directional Drill

Introducing a new direction in HDD — the D23x30 S3 Navigator® horizontal directional drill is one of the quietest drills on the HDD market. As one of the quietest drills on the HDD market, this addition to Vermeer’s suite of horizontal directional drills rethinks HDD from the very start.

Here’s what you can expect:

With 100 hp (75 kW) Deutz Tier 4 Final or Tier 3 (EU Stage IIIA) engine options, the D23x30 S3 offers speed and power in a shorter, narrower footprint to help increase productivity when working in compact urban or commercial jobsites.

With 24,000 lb (106.8 kN) of thrust and pullback and 3000 ft-lb (4067.5 Nm) of rotational torque — an impressive increase over its predecessor (D20x22 Series II) — the D23x30 S3 quietly leads the way in meeting the challenges operators face every day.

  • An increase in horsepower offers more power for drilling, as well as tracking and maneuvering the drill around the jobsite, and the ability to run all functions at a high level, providing improved jobsite productivity.
  • This feature offers increased flexibility of the drill during operation.
  • Increased carriage speeds help contractors install more linear feet per day.
  • The system features a digital display and improved onboard diagnostics. The system design uses less wiring and fuses for greater reliability. All S3 Navigator drills have a common control platform, benefitting drill operators with the ability to operate a variety of drills and can lessen the time needed for training.
  • The improved hydraulics increase the system’s efficiency, allowing better use of engine horsepower and increasing the drill’s productivity.

Exceptional power: Whether you’re in an urban or commercial job site, the Vermeer D23X30S3 horizontal directional drill stands ready to put power into action with a hefty 100 hp (75 kW) Deutz Tier 4 Final or Tier 3 (EU Stage IIIA) engine.
