Steering plate steep taper tuff for Ditch Witch

Steering plate steep taper tuff for Ditch Witch

The steering plate with a steep taper tuff for Ditch Witch is a vital component in horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations, known for its outstanding performance and durability. The precision-engineered design specifically suits the Ditch Witch drilling assemblies and contributes to enhanced drilling accuracy and control.


The primary material in this steering plate's construction is 1.7225 quenched and tempered steel. This specific grade of alloy steel contains elements such as chromium and molybdenum, contributing to its high strength, exceptional toughness, and wear resistance. The quenching and tempering process involves heating the steel to a certain temperature, then rapidly cooling it, followed by reheating it at a lower temperature. This process strengthens the steel by creating a hard outer shell and a tough, flexible interior, thereby enhancing the steering plate's performance under high-stress and high-torque drilling conditions.


The steering plate features a 'steep taper tuff' design. This specialized design includes a pronounced taper that improves the plate's ability to steer through various soil conditions, including those that are extremely challenging. The 'tuff' aspect of the design refers to its enhanced durability, allowing it to withstand high stress, abrasive conditions, and resist deformation over extended periods of heavy use.


Our production line includes a wide array of Ditch Witch directional drill parts, specifically designed for different models including JT2020, JT3020, JT4020, JT920, and AT100. Each part is produced adhering to stringent quality controls, and we strive to ensure their availability within a 1-2 week timeframe from the placement of an order, minimizing downtime in drilling operations.


In addition, we manufacture various Vermeer directional drill parts, custom-made for models such as Vermeer D24 and D36, and a comprehensive range of Ditch Witch HDD components. We aim to cater to a diverse range of HDD equipment needs.


We also maintain a stock of used directional drills and other Ditch Witch used parts. These are rigorously inspected and refurbished as necessary to meet our high standards of quality and reliability. Be it new or refurbished, our steering plates and other drilling parts are engineered to provide superior performance and durability, contributing to efficient and effective HDD operations.
