Our Unique Features

Our standard HDD Pilot Bits come in sizes of 5-1/2” and 6-1/2”. Every bit features our durable and well-respected 5-blade design, including 13mm PDC cutters for professional, precise, and highly effective performance during any rock drilling projects.

Many traditional milled tooth roller cone bits are composed of several different pieces, resulting in moving parts. However, our pilot bits and reamers are 1-piece products made of premium alloy steel. These are much sturdier than any three cone milled tooth roller and can be used at very high rotation speeds. This technology greatly improves the amount of drilling that can be completed. Operators can work longer and harder without compromising their tools. In fact, our Silver Bullet HDD bits have been known to drill as far as 10,000 feet!
