Product Details

Our Ditch Witch Compatible starter rods provide a simple crossover from Ditch Witch® drills to Vermeer® downhole tools and DCI transmitters. These starter rods are available for the JT920, JT1720, and JT2720 directional drills and are manufactured from 4145HT material for maximum service life. The Starter Rod provides a non-torqued connection between the Starter Rod and the downhole tool for safe and convenient tool installation and removal.

Starter rods, AKA lead rods or starter drill pipes, are crucial in horizontal directional drilling (HDD). They help reduce stress in the connections between the drill pipes, beacon housings, and back reamers. We make our starter rods from strong steel, heat-treating them and precisely machining them for maximum toughness.

Starter rods make attaching and detaching downhole tools easy and safe without twisting. They also ensure secure connections between the drill rod and downhole equipment.

Drill rods are unhardened, precisely shaped, round bars used in various industries like manufacturing and construction. They commonly make tough machine parts like dies, punches, drills, gauges, and pins. These parts need to be strong and long-lasting.
