Vermeer D9

D9x13 S3 Navigator® Horizontal Directional Drill

The next generation is here. Drilling performance has been redefined with the D9x13 S3 Navigator® horizontal directional drill, which features a streamlined operator’s station and simplified joystick controls now common through the Vermeer Navigator® HDD lineup. To earn the coveted S3 badge, the D9x13 S3 has gone through substantial testing in a variety of terrain.


A 26% increase in carriage speed over its predecessor allows for shortened cycle times and enhanced jobsite productivity.
Powered with 9000 lb (40 kN) of thrust/pullback power and a rotational torque rated at 1300 ft-lb (1762.6 Nm).
The D9x13 S3 has a maximum ground drive speed of 3.5 mph (5.6 km/h).
