Horizontal Directional Drilling
Horizontal Directional Drilling is often used for longer distances. Directional drilling is performed by firstly completing a pilot bore which is steered by a trackable device located in the drill head sending an electronic signal to the handheld locating device, always tracking its line and depth. Reaming is then commenced until the required diameter is achieved and conduits pulled into the bore, ready for clients to use.
The directional drills allow us to drill under and alongside roadways, under trees, creek beds, water catchment areas, retaining walls and infrastructure. Our specialised equipment and drill heads enable us to drill all types of ground, ranging from sand to rock. The HDD bore hole capabilities range from 50mm up to 600mm in diameter.
