Building on the performance of the Toro DD4045 horizontal directional drill (HDD), Toro has introduced the newest addition to its horizontal directional drill product line — the DD4050. The HDD unit offers a number of new features to complement the existing HDD product line, including increased rotary torque, re-styled guarding around the stake-down area, and a software upgrade to Toro drill operating system, or TDOS 1.

The DD4050 offers 5,000 ft.-lb. of torque for improved performance in challenging conditions. The additional torque can aid in the boring process through tough terrain, including hard rock drilling applications. The operator can control and monitor all functions of the drill head from the integrated LCD display, all in the same small footprint that contractors have come to appreciate, according to the manufacturer.

Additional features found on the DD4050 include re-styled guarding around the stake-down area. In addition to providing a better vantage point to the pipe entry area, the operator also will appreciate the improved overall visibility from the well-appointed operator's station. Another key feature integrated into the DD4050 is the software upgrade to TDOS 1, which provides streamlined drill controls for increased load/unload cycle speed. This functionality, coupled with improved navigation and the ability to monitor drill idle time and total engine hours, is designed to deliver increased operator productivity.

“In terms of productivity, the DD4050 is a real powerhouse when considering its size,” said Joshua Beddow, marketing manager of The Toro Company. “The increased rotary torque is really going to help utility contractors power through less-than-ideal conditions, and the Toro drill operating system, TDOS 1, provides an extremely user-friendly experience for HDD operators.”

The DD4050 also is available with an optional enclosed, climate-controlled operator's cab to provide comfortable operating conditions in inclement weather.
