Crossing 10km|6.2 miles Underground, XZ2600E Horizontal Directional Drill Laying Natural Gas Pipelines!

XCMG XZ2600E horizontal directional drill makes an appearance in Kunshan, facilitating the natural gas pipeline construction project. The project has a total construction length of approximately 10km|6.2miles, with a 600mm|23.62-in steel pipe being laid, and individual construction lengths of over 600m|1,968ft.

During the long-distance drilling process, the project involves traversing cross complex geological conditions such as fishponds, highways, and forests. The upgraded XZ2600E Horizontal Directional Drill from XCMG features enhanced intelligence and power output, completing the over 440m|1,444ft project in just 40 hours. The entire project is expected to be completed in three months.

The XZ2600E Horizontal Directional Drill is a newly developed intelligent drill by XCMG, tailored to meet the needs of customers. It boasts a maximum pullback force of up to 2600KN|584,487 pounds-force and a maximum rotary torque of 92KN.m|67,978 foot-pounds, making it suitable for long-distance and complex terrain crossings, meeting the market demand for 800-1000mm|31.5-39.4in large pipes and rock geological construction in the 200-ton class.


Building upon XCMG’s technological advantages, the XZ2600E Horizontal Directional Drill has made innovative improvements in terms of construction safety, efficiency, energy-saving, and intelligence, with several highlights:

- One-Key Control for Intelligent Safety:

The XZ2600E Horizontal Directional Drill incorporates significant advancements in intelligent manufacturing. With one-key operation for semi-automatic loading and unloading of drill rods, the construction process is simplified. The rotary head features a three-level non-destructive anti-collision technology, effectively preventing collision between equipment components. Overload protection and digital pressure adjustment technology allow precise presetting of drill rig torque, push-pull force, and clamping force, thereby extending the equipment’s service life.
