AXIS™ GB812 Guided Boring System

Guided Boring System | Vermeer AXIS™ GB812

When it comes to installing sewer and water lines, your main goals are on-grade accuracy and exceptional productivity. The AXIS™ GB812 Guided Boring System from Vermeer delivers both. The closed-circuit camera built into the drill head allows the operator to constantly monitor line and grade, while the vacuum excavation method removes spoils efficiently without the need for manual labor. Plus, the unit’s modular design can be configured in a number of ways to match jobsite constraints.


Features and Benefits

  • Choose your pipe because the AXIS system has the ability to push or pull in a variety of product pipes.
  • Maintain clean pits using the vacuum excavation unit, which handles spoil within the launch pit without suspending drilling operations.
  • Select your tooling with a variety of cutter-face tooling options to match varying ground conditions.
  • Minimize restoration costs because only two pits are needed, which can later serve as manhole locations.
  • See your Vermeer dealer for comprehensive service and genuine Vermeer replacement parts.
