Line construction: The new Toro® DD2024 horizontal directional drill combines a compact design with 20,000 lbs of pullback force and 2,400 ft-lbs of rotary torque. Powered by a 74-horsepower Cummins® B3.3 turbocharged diesel engine, the DD2024 delivers consistent and reliable performance in all operating conditions. Its quad rack and pinion carrier design spreads the load evenly for smooth and stable movement. The onboard mud pump flows up to 30 gallons per minute and the floating carriage has two speeds, including a 120 ft/min fast mode.

“Toro is committed to building quality equipment,” says Josh Beddow, product marketing manager for Toro underground equipment. “Contractors will be impressed with the performance of the Toro DD2024. We’ve made significant investments in development of our underground equipment, as well as in our service team and dealer network to serve the unique needs of contractors working in this industry.”

The DD2024 is designed for powerful performance in tight working conditions. It has a footprint of 52 inches wide, 207 inches long, and a height of 74 inches. It has forward-mounted track drive motors with planetary gear reduction to provide superior traction in all types of ground conditions. The rear dual stabilizers can be independently adjusted to safely secure the unit during operation. For operator safety, the DD2024 uses a remote exit side lock out system and a Zap Alert™ system to notify the operator in the event of an electric line strike.

With flexibility to use single or dual stick controls while drilling, the DD2024 allows the operator to choose the control style that matches his or her preference. The operator station includes a backlit LCD screen that monitors a full range of system functions. Service is also easy with single-piece front and rear hoods that offer unobstructed access.
