Drill Pipe Manufacturers | Drill Rod Suppliers | TuffRod

At TuffRod we manufacture and supply drill rods and drill pipes for Ditch Witch®, TT Technologies, Toro®, Vermeer® and Range 2. Carefully controlling all phases of the manufacturing process, from raw material selection to the most rigorous quality control inspection processes of any manufacturer in the industry, our rods are manufactured for maximum rod strength.

We monitor the manufacturing process from beginning to end.

  • Raw material
  • Internal and external upset forging
  • A highly specialized heat treatment process
  • Precision machined pin & box connections

The final stage of the drill rod manufacturing process is a rigorous quality control inspection process. The combination of the proprietary alloy material and internal procedural control allows us to manufacture the highest quality drill pipe that technology will allow.

Horizontal Directional Drilling History

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) began as an idea from Martin Cherrington in the early 1960’s. In 1979, Titan Contractors completed the installation of a 40-inch diameter pipeline across a river in Houston which at the time was considered the largest diameter river crossing ever attempted. The installation took ten years and after that HDD took off.

Directional drilling is a perfect solution for underground excavation as it eliminates digging an access pit and diminishes the inherent dangers with crews working underground.

At TuffRod our drill rod experience dates back to the very beginning of horizontal directional drilling and our team of experts know what it takes to make it in the HDD industry.
