We use quality components like Honda engines and manufacture many of the parts right in our plant here in Houston in order to ensure that the quality meets our standards. Our machines are built to stand up to the elements required to do the job they are designed to do. They are easy to work on and parts, when you do need them, are easy to get. Some of our customers are still using 30 year old machines. How’s that for ROI?
Just read this testimonial from our armed forces:
Thanks Bill,…I ordered 1 of these back in 2008 for Kirkuk regional air base, Iraq. You saved more time and unnecessary repairs on roadway and airfield maintenance, the Prairie Dog is a great machine!! I’m looking to acquire another one for Thumrait air base, Oman. Only someone who does Airfield Repair like myself and the Gentlemen I deploy with can completely appreciate the ingenious design and versatility of the Prairie Dog!!

Boring with a Prairie Dog machine is not only easy it’s predictable.
Most customers are amazed at the accuracy that our machines deliver. You can count on being able to hit your target even if you hit something in between. Missiles can’t do that. As soon as they hit something they will veer off course and usually come out in the worse possible place like the middle of the road if they come out at all. For less than what you would pay for a missile and air compressor you can own a Prairie Dog and hit that mark every time. In addition, our machines will work in a wide range of soil conditions and allow you to bore multiple sized holes. Missiles simply can’t do that. They aren’t designed to.
Another great testimonial:
Spent our morning putting our new equipment to use! The manufacture said to start with a small job and work your way up to the big ones. Those that know me will say that’s not my style. We bought 2 new small diameter boring machines from 3/4″ to 8″ completed 100ft of 1-1/4 water line with tracer wire in under 3 hours. It took longer to excavate, remove the roots and prep the site then it did to bore and install the pipe. Tomorrow we will back fill and complete the project. Thanks to my crew And our helpers! They made the city of South El Monte very happy even had a pleasant visit from a couple city councils members thanking us for the quick work getting the water resupplied to the park! @ Prairie dog boring

Model 900TW Model 500TWG
Prairie Dog Boring Equipment is introducing the new 500TWG. Similar to the 500TW the new model is only 5 1/2 feet long and uses 2 1/2 foot long drill rods. The machine will fit in the same size pit as most missiles or bullet moles but has larger capacity(up to 6″), and will work in a variety soil conditions with much better accuracy and higher productivity rates. The cost is very competitive just for the machine itself and there is no need for an air compressor. All you need is a municipal type pressure water supply. It’s great for tighter areas where a full size bore pit isn’t possible.
Prairie Dog machines can bore 2″ to 28″ holes up to 300 feet. The typical customer, though, makes short bores of 40, 60 or 100 feet for the installation of water service lines, mains, telecommunication lines, electrical conduit etc. While soil conditions can be a challenge for any method we have the experience to offer solutions to get the job done. While not typical our machines have been used to clean culverts, and pierce hillsides for water extraction just to name a couple If you can imagine a reason you think one of our machines might work, give us a call. We’ll give you an honest answer whether we think it will work.
A testimonial from Texas Hill Country:
I have purchased two machines from Bill at Prairie dog and have had nothing but great service. Our machines have stood up to a variety of difficult material to bore through and are still getting the job done. Thank you for your service and your product.
