PD-4: Versatile Enough for Any Soil Condition

Home » PD-4: Versatile Enough for Any Soil Condition

When your crew needs to install an underground pipe or conduit in an area with surface features or other obstacles, the PD-4 offers accuracy, precision, and speed. This directional thrust boring equipment allows your team to reach a target within mere inches, so you only have to create the bore once. The PD-4’s versatility and durability in any soil condition makes it one of the top-rated products we offer at Pow-R Mole Trenchless Solutions.

Create a Bore in Any Compressible Soil

Compressible soil decreases in volume when it experiences a mechanical load. The PD-4 creates a considerable mechanical load of 3,000 psi. This directional thrust boring system creates a bore for ID pipe up to four inches in diameter, and it works in clay, silt, and mixed soil types with moderate to high amounts of organic material.

Navigate Around Underground Obstacles

Worksites often involve underground obstacles that interfere with traditional pipe and conduit installations. The PD-4 works through these obstacles without difficulty. Navigate around or through old foundations, storage tanks, tree roots, and more without compromising safety or efficacy.

Keep Surface Features Intact

Your clients may express concern about the level or duration of disruption for a boring project. The PD-4 minimizes or even eliminates surface disruptions. The equipment just requires one small access point. Pavement, asphalt, bricks, and other surface features remain intact. This also reduces project costs and keeps the worksite cleaner and safer.

When excavation for a bore isn’t an option, your crew can count on the PD-4. It performs exceptionally in any soil type or adverse weather conditions. Its portability, ease of setup, and power boost efficiency and ensure efficient project completion timelines. Reach out to us for more information about the PD-4 and our other directional thrust boring tools. At Pow-R Mole Trenchless Solutions, you get top-level equipment to take your business to the next level!
