Vermeer D10x15 S3

Introducing a new direction in horizontal directional drilling (HDD). The D10x15 S3 offers even more power and performance than its predecessor, the D9x13 S3. It’s a reliable, economical solution for small service installation — built to help increase your crew’s productivity so you can go from one job to the next faster. With significant gains in horsepower and speed and a reduction in noise, the D10x15 S3 can help you put more product in the ground in a shorter amount of time.

  • An increase in carriage speed of almost 11% over its predecessor allows for faster cycle times and improved jobsite productivity.
  • Improved rotation performance helps boost productivity — an increase in spindle speed of up to 16% over its predecessor allows for a better mud slurry, enabling better mud flow while pulling in product in softer or reactive ground conditions.
  • A maximum ground drive speed (forward) of up to 3.3 mph (5.3 km/h) with optional wireless remote makes it faster than the closest competitor — helping make job setup times, jobsite entry and jobsite departure go more quickly.
  • A high rotational torque rating of 1500 ft-lb (2033.7 Nm) and 10,000 lb (44.5 kN) of thrust/pullback force provide the versatile power required for tough ground conditions and pulling reamers.
  • An almost 50% increase in tractive-effort-to-weight ratio over its predecessor enables improved tracking up and down ditches and enhanced maneuverability when fine-tuning setup and trailer positioning.
  • Reduced noise levels at operator’s ear makes a quieter working environment possible — creating less neighborhood disturbance and enabling easier communication among the crew.
  • Small footprint — 4" (10.2 cm) narrower than its closest competitor — allows the drill to easily maneuver within narrow jobsites and position side by side with a mix system on a trailer.
