VERMEER D24X40 S3 Horizontal Directional Drill

Introducing a new direction in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) — the D24x40 S3 carries on a proud legacy of reliability. The D24x40 set the industry standard in 1993. Now there are even more reasons why it’s the trusted choice to meet contractors’ “right-size and right-power” needs. With 28,000 lb (124.6 kN) of thrust and pullback and 4200 ft-lb (5694.4 Nm) of rotational torque — an increase over its predecessor (D24x40 Series II) — the D24x40 S3 helps maximize machine and jobsite productivity, while class-leading cycle times help get the job done faster. With a proud legacy of delivering quality HDD projects since 1993, the D24x40 is now available in a new format with updated features including ground, carriage and rotational speed as well as breakout efficiency, making it one of the most effective drills in the HDD market. Packing on 28,000 lb (124.6 kN) of thrust/pullback and 4200 ft-lb (5694.4 Nm) of rotational torque, the Vermeer D24X40S3 horizontal directional drill is equipped to deal with all ground conditions found here in WA and NT – no matter how challenging.  As such, the Vermeer D24X40S3 Horizontal Directional Drill has effectively become the industry standard.
  • Offers power for drilling as well as tracking and maneuvering the drill around the jobsite for maximum productivity.
  • The D24x40 S3 offers an increase in thrust/pullback thrust and rotational torque over its predecessor, the D24x40 Series II, which helps maximize machine and jobsite productivity.
  • This feature offers increased flexibility of the drill during operation.
  • Increased carriage speeds can lead to decreased cycle times, helping contractors install more linear feet per day.
  • The system features a digital display in addition to the DigiTrak® Aurora™ and improved onboard diagnostics. The system design uses a power distribution module that reduces the amount of 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 lessening the time needed for training.

Quieter, calmer job site: An efficient job site depends on communication. 

The Vermeer D24X40S3 horizontal directional drill comes with new noise proofing technology contributing to a quieter and more effective job site with a 104 dBA sound power level and an operator ear rating of no more than 82.9 dBA. With these updates, you can expect smoother communication between crew, plus the neighbours will thank you.

Strength where it matters: With an extremely emissions efficient liquid-cooled diesel John Deere 4045 4.5-litre engine producing 125 horsepower, it’s hard to imagine this machine out of its comfort zone. This excellent power base lends itself to class leading cycle times and much-improved job site productivity.

Install faster than ever: Getting the job done fast is the goal. And when it comes to the D24x40 S3, you shouldn’t underestimate its sheer speed. Backed by 270 rpm rotational speed, and a carriage speed of 240 feet per minute (73.2 m/min) – more than 20% faster than its closest competitor – the Vermeer D24x40 S3 HDD will help you install faster than ever before. 

Focus on operator ergonomics: The cabin is where you’re spending most of the time – so why not make this space as comfortable as possible?
