Clean Harbors offers the Ditch Witch® JT100 All Terrain directional drill for drilling in rock conditions. The All Terrain reduces the amount of water normally used in mud motoring with the capability of drilling through solid rock at lower gpm versus a normal mud motor process, which uses 300 gpm. The All Terrain directional drill also decreases the chance of a frac out.
