Happy spring! Here at Ditch Witch West, we are thrilled to be launching our Toolkit Series! A sister to our Papé Machinery Agriculture & Turf Toolkit Series, subscribe to our YouTube channel for timely and helpful videos that will walk you through our most widely used products and equipment. In the second edition of the Ditch Witch West Toolkit series, Toolkit Expert Matt dives into our most popular TriHawk bits. We’ll dive into the main differences between our most popular TriHawk Bits, and in what conditions you might want to use them.
When it comes to varying directional drilling needs, operators enjoy the ability to change out TriHawk bits depending on the type of terrain they are trying to cut through. Whether you’re drilling through compact rock or soft rock, operators can choose the TriHawk bit suitable for the job. Here at Ditch Witch West, we carry TriHawk bits that can handle even the most aggressive directional drilling needs in a wide range of soils. Built for longevity and productivity, the bits we carry are durable and less susceptible to fracture.
In our first edition of the Ditch Witch West Toolkit series, Toolkit Expert Matt walks us through our 4 most popular TriHawk drill bits:
#1 Standard Dirt Bit
If you’re not getting into much cobble, choose the standard dirt bit. This bit works for most terrain types, though it will not drill through more compact rock.
#2 TriHawk I
TriHawk is an aggressive directional drilling drill bit designed for soft rock conditions. It features replaceable carbide teeth that reduce machine vibration. It can work in more compacted soil as well as cobble, but is not designed for hard rock.
#3 TriHawk V
The TriHawk V, often referred to as a spoon bit, is built for hard rock and cobble. This powerful innovative design can eat through even the most compacted rock, and provides exceptional performance in round rock cobble, flat river stone, loose fill, and hardpan.
#4 TriHawk Reamer Bit
The TriHawk Reamer Bit can be used for back reaming jobs. It has a solid tab on it, so also works with any type of vacuum. This is great for fast, easy, small-diameter installations, and is one of our most popular bits.
