Why Horizontal Directional Drilling Is Better For Your Project Than Open Cut Drilling

In the course of human history, drilling has been a large part of our construction processes. In fact, the first machine tools in recorded existence were the bow drill and the bow lathe. Naturally, drilling technology has advanced to DTH hammer bits and the like since the ancient advent of the bow drill, but the concept remains the same.

As time has progressed, new drilling methods have been established and have helped make a laborious process more streamlined and efficient. The invention of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) has become the leading technology in the drilling industry. Let’s take a look at some ways that HDD technology has surpassed traditional drilling for tackling projects involving pipe and underground utility installation.

Less Mess

Traditional drilling makes a huge mess and can be wildly inconvenient. Depending on the project, it calls for large working crews and will result in a torn up landscape for the entire length of whatever needs to be installed underground. HDD eliminates the need for large working crews and can be operated by a small team. Plus, aside from the initial dig at the start of the project, HDD doesn’t do any further damage to landscaping for the entire length of the drilling process.

It’s Cheaper

Referred to as open cut drilling, this traditional method calls for more support equipment. In the end, open cut needs other rental equipment to aid in digging, removing displaced soil, and transporting heavy gear. Those costs add up depending on the size of a project. HDD doesn’t make such a mess, thereby removing the need for extraneous and expensive support machinery.

Less Red Tape

You already know that plenty of construction projects require permit approvals. As open cut drilling is such a disruptive process, you may need even more permit approval before a job can begin. HDD doesn’t cause a fraction of the disturbance and generally requires less time for the job to be approved.

In the end, if you’re drilling for a project, horizontal directional drilling is the way to go. For efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and longevity of your project, nothing can beat HDD. If you need DTH hammer bits, mud motors, and any other odds and ends to get the job done, the HDD pros at Torquato are here to help. Get in touch with us today.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!| Emmie Bernarr Enyedy

    The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of late, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net might be a lot more useful than ever before.
