Horizontal Boring Machines


Company Overview and Policies

The "Prairie Dog" line of boring equipment was founded in 1968. Since then we have developed a full line of Prairie Dog horizontal earth boring machines, ranging from a versatile 22 pound hand-held machine for 2” to 4” holes, up to a heavy-duty 395 pound machine for 3” to 28” holes over 200 feet in length.

Ditch the Missiles

Missiles can end up anywhere but where you aim them including the middle of the road. Soil conditions dictate whether they can be used at all. Missiles can get stuck or lost altogether along with a significant investment which leads you to making a major decision. Dig it out and tear up what you were trying to avoid tearing up in the first place or leave it there and buy another one. This won’t happen with a Prairie Dog Machine. Our machines will work in a variety of soil conditions and just by design accuracy is much better.  Pricing is comparable, our versatility and range is much better.  There is no better option for utility installation.

Prairie Dog Boring Equipment

All of the Prairie Dog machines are small, lightweight and inexpensive compared to competitive products. All have clutches and other safety features and are built sturdy to provide years of trouble-free operation.
A complete line of Prairie Dog bits and backreamers is available for every boring condition, from from sand to rock. Many useful attachments and accessories are also available.

Our Capabilities

Prairie Dog horizontal earth boring machines are now in use all over the USA, Canada, Mexico and many other countries. The machines are used by water and sewer utilities and plumbing, electrical, telephone, cable, landscaping and irrigation contractor, plus many others.  Our quick accuracy on short bores make us an ideal choice for force main or low pressure sewer system installations.  Our rugged durability is evidenced by the number of 20+ year old machines still in use.  If you are using other means of boring like piercing tools we have a better solution.  Our machines are more accurate and work in a wider range of soil conditions and require much less maintenance.  All this at a comparable price.
