Welcome!


 

 

EBI was incorporated in June 1991, headquartered in Duluth, Minnesota, initially providing contractor services to thermally treat petroleum contaminated soils.

 

EBI Drilling went into the future with horizontal drilling for fiber optics, phone lines, water mains, sewer mains and gas lines.

 

As the demand for service grew, so did the demand for newer and more powerful equipment. EBI began directional drilling with a 4020 drill then purchased a 7020 to replace it and in 2005, a new 8020 was added to the drilling equipment along with a pit-launch drill and a rock drill for special applications. In December 2006, EBI purchased a new 8020 DitchWitch unit.

 

We are currently using some of the best drilling equipment available, which is described below. These machines are capable of getting the job done quickly.

 

 

 

Our Current Drilling Equipment  

Introducing the JT3020. One of the roughest, toughest directional drills ever made. Because when the ground gets tough, the JT3020's 148-horsepower turbocharged diesel engine gets tougher. Yet with all of this power, the engine is amazingly quiet - with less noise than engines even a fraction of its size. (photo and description courtesy of ditchwitchmn.com) 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  The 268 horsepower (200 kilowatts) JT100 is an incredibly powerful machine, but it's not power that makes it so productive - it's how the power is distributed. The JT100 is designed to deliver power where it's needed to complete the bore in the most efficient manner, without compromising power to other machine functions. There's plenty of power for an optional onboard crane and onboard anchor system, too, which eliminate the need for additional equipment for pipeloading, anchoring, and other tasks, and give the JT100 a unique ability: the power to reduce the size of the jobsite.  (photo and description courtesy of ditchwitchmn.com)
