Drill Defender Boring Bits.

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 DefenderTM boring bits: prolonged steering and carving. Our enhanced underground boring bits feature our exclusive TungstrongTM laser additive to maintain the leading edge of the bit. Here are just a few benefits to demonstrate how we're revolutioninzing horizontal directional drilling:

  • Longer-maintained leading edge
  • Prolonged steering
  • More feet in the ground
  • Greater impact resistance
  • 2-4 times longer life
Used Kondex enhanced Drill Defender boring bit compared to traditional worn bit.

The above bits both ran 1,000 feet in cobble in the same area. The Kondex Drill DefenderTM enhanced bit (left) showed minimal wear and could continue to be used; whereas, the traditional bit (right) lost its steering and was no longer usable.

Carbide Seat Belting.

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