MTI's Platinum Level Certified Horizontal Directional Drills are the highest-level, preowned drills you will find on the market today. This is a sensible option for the contractor who needs a great operating rig but wants to save money compared to buying new
Platinum Level Drills are sold ready to go to work on your jobsite. To be Platinum Level Certified*, a drill must first meet certain MTI qualifications and standards regarding age, hours, wear, and overall condition.
If a drill meets our qualifications and standards, it will then go through our meticulous 80-point inspection. During this process, the drill is fully serviced, and all known issues are repaired by our highly skilled mechanics in coordination with our Quality Control Department, who test drill with the machine multiple times. The process is continued until the drill meets our Platinum Level Standards for operation.
MTI's Gold Level Certified Horizontal Directional Drills provide a great value for customers looking for a jobsite ready rig at an affordable price.
Gold Level Drills are categorized as such because of differences in either age, hours, or percentage of wear compared to our Platinum Level drills.
Gold Level Certified Drills will go through our 80-point inspection process, like Platinum Level Drills. These drills will be serviced and/or repaired by our highly trained mechanics. However, the percentage of wear tolerance on wearable parts is slightly lower than our Platinum level. Our Quality Control Department will test drill the machine multiple times, until it meets our Gold Level standards for operation.
Additionally, we invite all customers to bring their crew and drill with the machine to make sure they are satisfied with the operation before it leaves. For those who cannot make it to our facility, your salesman will send you an HD video of the final test drill on the machine before it is shipped.

Despite not going through the same refurbishing processas our other levels, we still service these drills and make sure all main functions are working. So, you can be confident that even with a Silver Level Certified Drill we are still minimizing the risk of buying used.
