Home » Reasons Our Drilling Equipment Options are Superior

Pow-R Mole directional boring equipment sets itself above the rest through its reliable and low-maintenance construction, its compact yet powerful design that provides for pipeline installation from small locations, and its advanced digital and analog technology at the pushrod heads that enables it to accurately determine its belowground location to within inches while avoiding underground obstacles and safely reaching its destination.

For installing new and replacement pipes in areas that require a high degree of accuracy, there’s no better method than thrust boring by Pow-R Mole.

The Most Versatile and Economical HDD System Available

Our products and equipment are USA-built and engineered to be durable and simple to use. They’re sturdy systems, optimized for maximum productivity and minimum digging.

Our HDD thrusting equipment is the easiest to use and most effectively-powerful range of products currently on the market.

High Efficiency

One of the standout features of Pow-R Mole directional boring equipment is its ability to operate from small pits. It can be quickly assembled and easily relocated, making it a highly versatile and time and cost-saving solution that adapts to difficult-to-access areas with a minimum of space.

Our HDD Models

Our compact and high-power HDD machines are not only adaptable but also made to work in tough soil conditions under high-traffic areas that can’t afford to be disrupted. These industry-leading systems include:

PD-2 – A single-operator, steerable machine for installations under porches, driveways, and yards and from basements.

PD-4 – A small device that operates from pits as small as 50 inches yet offers a 37,714-lb thrust force at 3,000 psi.

PD-6 – Operating from pits with only a 56-inch length, the PD-6 offers a 84,822-lb thrust force at 3,000 psi.

Maximum Service with Minimum Maintenance

This HDD equipment is a sturdy and reliable workhorse:

Our patented pusher mechanism moves on bronze bushings and utilizes a specialized sealer that conserves internal lubricant and prevents the introduction of dirt and water, keeping machines in working order without a lot of upkeep.

The machine frames are made with high-strength steel and are protected against cumulative wear by a chromed-steel guide bar, so they don’t wear down quickly.

The PD-4 and PD-6 also feature a non-slip, positive-locking jaw assembly that applies a steady pushing force to pushrods, making them powerful utilities.

Advanced Digital and Analog Steering Technology

The horizontal directional drilling equipment uses digital and analog guidance systems, which include the Falcon F1, the Falcon F2 and the Falcon F5, to match shallow grades and safely steer around obstacles, like ducting, foundations or pipes.

The PD-4 and PD-6 products can use digital detection technology that determines the location of the boring head to within inches by transmitting orientation, pitch, depth and location through radio and digital signals. The operator receives the information in the form of:

  • Target-in-the-box head location
  • A clock-face head-orientation indicator
  • Pitch in degrees or percentage
  • A depth reading
  • A real-time display of necessary grade or rotation changes
  • Remote right and left steering
  • Pitch and roll updates and roll offset
  • A picture-oriented menu

The PD-2, PD-4 and PD-6 products can use analog detection technology based on a 32.8 kHz sonde and transmitter. A receiver provides information on orientation, depth, and location to within inches.
