Designed for reliable performance job after job, the DD2024 delivers tremendous power in a compact footprint.
The two-speed floating carriage moves at 120 ft/min (36.6 m/min) at high speed to decrease cycle time and reduce operator fatigue.
The Cummins® B3.3 turbocharged diesel engine with 74 hp (61.9 kW) delivers up to 20,000 lbs (9.07 tonnes) of consistent thrust/pullback and best-in-category 2,400 ft-lbs (3.354 Nm) rotary torque for reliable performance in all conditions.
Quad rack and pinion carriage design spreads the carriage load evenly for smooth and stable movement. In addition, the carriage gear track is welded, not bolted, to the frame for long-lasting durability.
With a footprint of less than 52" (132 cm) wide, 207" (526 cm) long, and a height of less than 74" (188 cm), the DD2024 is easy to transport and capable of delivering powerful drilling in tight spaces.
Single-piece front and rear hoods are easily opened for unobstructed access, providing fast and efficient service and maintenance.
With the flexibility to choose either single or dual joystick operation, the ability to use cruise control when back-reaming, and the ability to monitor the full range of system functions from the color LCD screen, operators are able to quickly and confidently operate the DD2024.
Standard tethered ground drive control improves operator visibility and allows for safe unloading and transport. At the job site, dual stabilizers can be independently adjusted for increased stability on uneven ground. And, the exit side lock out and Zap Alert™ systems ensure crew safety at both the entry and exit sides for maximum safety while drilling.
Forward-mounted track drive motors with planetary gear reduction provide superior traction in all types of ground conditions.
Heavy-duty vise wrenches are open-top, providing excellent visibility of the tool joint to allow for faster connections and breakouts.
Optional air hammer is easily integrated for hard rock drilling applications. Operator can control all hard-rock hammer functions and monitor performance from the integrated LCD display.
