System to expedite short service line installations in shallow ground with limited fluid.

When is



We are excited for you to try the Service Shot System that can increase your job site productivity for service installations.


It is built for a very specific type of job site with certain conditions. So, how do you know when to opt for Service Shot or when to go with a premium SD housing? We've put together a table below to make it easy for you to decide when the Service Shot System is the right choice. 

SD Housing Setup Service Shot System
I need minimal fluid for faster cleanup
I have a tight setup area & need a shorter, zero-point entry
I need something without teeth that won’t risk snagging unmarked utility
I need to decrease my rod time from 10 minutes to 2 minutes
We have multiple short shots we need to get done in a day
I want a threadless solution for connecting bits
We are drilling over 150ft in a single shot
I need to run high RPMs for the ground I’m in
I need to run a lot of fluid with a special mud mix for my ground type
My ground type calls for carbide protection and cutter teeth on my bit
I'll be pulling back greater than 10,000 lbs of utility on pullback
