Keep Your Steering, Keep on Drilling

The one thing that matters most to horizontal directional drilling contractors is their steering. This also happens to be the main benefit to Kondex Drill Defender™ boring bits: prolonged steering and carving. Our enhanced underground boring bits feature our exclusive Tungstrong™ laser additive to maintain the leading edge of the bit.

Here are just a few benefits to demonstrate how we're revolutionizing horizontal directional drilling:

  • Longer-maintained leading edge
  • Prolonged steering
  • More feet per day
  • Greater impact resistance
  • 2-4 times longer life

Gain a Competitive Advantage

Gain greater job profitability by using boring bits that perform better, longer. Only Kondex Drill Defender™ boring bits feature a metallurgically bonded laser additive that protects the carbide inserts and/or leading edge of these high-wear parts — giving you better steering, longer life, greater efficiency, and higher job profitability! 

Most customers see extended usage by 2-4 times, while some have seen more than 10,000 feet in tough cobble conditions with Kondex Drill Defender™ bits!

Carbide Seat Belting

Our patent-pending design seat belts the carbides in place with our exclusive Tungstrong™ laser additive technology. This wear protection is metallurgically bonded to the carbide and base material to offer unmatched results over other alternatives.
