JT20XP Package

The full Ditch Witch XP drill package includes the JT20XP directional drill and a new XP44 mixing system – a full 118-hp package for optimized productivity on utility installation jobs.

Powered by a 74.5-hp (55.6-kW) Tier-4 Deutz® diesel engine, the JT20XP directional drill maximizes available horsepower for thrust and rotation.

The XP44 mixing system is equipped with a dedicated 44-hp (32.8-kW) Tier-4 Yanmar® diesel engine for superior mixing capabilities and drilling-fluid delivery.

The JT20XP drill provides 14 percent increased spindle torque for improved productivity and increased performance in tough ground conditions and on jobs that require a large backream, such as larger utility installations.

At 39 gpm the JT20XP provides 56 percent more mud flow than its JT20 Ditch Witch counterpart, offering contractors a productive drill designed specifically for larger jobs, without compromising jobsite footprint.

The unit also offers a 20 percent increased spindle speed, allowing operators the ability to run downhole tooling at faster speeds for improved underground cutting.

The XP drill and mixing system package features wireless communication up to distances of 300 feet in straight line-of-sight*, allowing operation of each unit independent from their designated operator stations. As a powerful standalone, diesel-powered mixing system, the XP44 offers superior mixing capabilities in a quieter package for less disruption in noise-sensitive areas.
