Small machine. Big results - The D6x6 NAVIGATOR horizontal directional drill is yet another trenchless innovation backed by years of Vermeer experience. With its compact footprint of 35.5" wide by 115" long, the D6x6 can easily be maneuvered within job sites where work space is confined.  Size, along with its light weight, make it easily transportable from one job site to another. The D6x6 is the ideal machine for curb-to-the-home applications, simply set-up, aim and "shoot" to your target.

: Compact Size
Benefit: No other directional drill can offer this much power in such a small package. Its small size allows it to be used in congested areas where competitive machines in the same HDD machine class cannot be used.

Feature: 6' FIRESTICK Drill Stem
Benefit: FIRESTICK drill stem is constructed with a premium blend of alloy steel which provides excellent strength and flexibility. FIRESTICK drill stem has memory characteristics to better withstand bending and rotational torque forces encountered during the drilling process. FIRESTICK drill stem has precision-machined threads that are designed specifically to help withstand the rigors of directional boring.

Feature: Compact and light towing package
Benefit: The compact size and light weight of the Six Shooter HDD allows it to be transported on a small sized trailer with the Vermeer ST250 Drilling Fluid System, a self-contained mixing system using a 250 gallon tank. The total weight of the drill, mixing system, tooling, and trailer is less than 10,000 lb (4545 kg) (excluding mixes).
