The new Ditch Witch JT10 horizontal directional drill (HDD) boasts unbeatable power in a compact, yet sturdy frame for easy transportation and improved maneuverability on tight jobsites. Powered by a Tier 4, 66-hp (49-kW) Deutz® diesel engine, the machine is the most powerful drill in its class. It offers 10,000 lbs (44 kN) of pullback force, providing the advanced strength and power of bigger drills, combined with the simplicity and easy operation of a compact machine. An innovative design incorporates advanced features of larger drill machines, including a heavy-duty anchor system, open-top vise wrenches and integrated remote display. A redesigned operator's station smooths operation with a single joystick and is equipped with an ergonomic traversing seat for increased jobsite visibility and comfortability on the job.







  • Powered by a Tier 4, 66-hp (49 kW) Deutz® diesel engine, the JT10 is the most powerful drill in its class. A Tier 4i option is available for less regulated countries.

  • For maximum strength and durability, the JT10 provides 1,100 ft·lb (2066.7 Nm) of rotational torque.

  • The engine is air-cooled and quiet for simplified maintenance and longer operation.

  • The JT10 comes standard with a 16-gpm mud pump or an optional 20-gpm mud pump, for better mud flow and performance, allowing operators to jet and complete larger-diameter reams on smaller jobsites.


  • An onboard fluid tank holds 40 gal of fresh water, providing additional fluid for short bores and easy cleanup. It also allows operators to effectively drill in tight spaces where an additional fluid mixer wouldn’t fit.

  • The JT10 holds 324 ft (98.8 m) of drill pipe onboard to improve productivity and allow operators to finish virtually any utility installation job.

  • The JT10 has the quickest cycle times in its drill class. The machine’s slow zone is shortened increasing cycle times and allowing operators to put more pipe in the ground faster.


  • The JT10 is equipped with a heavy-duty anchor system and integrated remote tracking display—features usually only seen on larger drill units.

  • The JT10 is the shortest drill in its class, giving it the ability to effortlessly maneuver in tight jobsites.

  • Small, compact machine is easy to transport form jobsite to jobsite with a rear ignition for faster jobsite setup.
