Building on greatness
Common CAN controls allow a smoother transition from one drill to the next across the Navigator HDD lineup and the S3 badge and D40x55 S3 drill, as a base platform, provide a standard of excellence you can count on.
The time and steps required to add or remove a rod on the D40x55DR S3 is significantly less than previous Vermeer models due to an enhanced dual drill rod design that quickly and easily makes up the inner and outer rod connections.
A climate-controlled cab can help reduce fatigue from outdoor elements and enhance operator comfort.
Powered by a 140-hp (104-kW) John Deere diesel engine, this drill serves up to 40,000 lb (177.9 kN) of thrust/pullback and 5500 ft-lb (7,457 Nm) of rotational torque, enabling boring through hard rock with less hassle.
More feet onboard
Spend less time switching out rod boxes and go further with your install by having more onboard rod carrying capacity.
A hollow inner rod design results in more air and drilling fluid flow to the drill head on pilot bores and the hole opener during pullback, providing contractors the ability to select from a more diverse range of tooling options, including air hammers and larger hole openers.
