The MR90 can mix and recycle drilling mud as well as handle spoils, for cost-effective production. Reclaiming, recycling and reusing drilling mud, will improve your customers' productivity and profitability.

New MR90 Mud Recycler From Ditch WitchMR90 uses a 2-screen system, along with six 2.5-inch hydrocyclones, to provides extra-clean mud for reuse; screens are easy to change and service. For fast setup, the MR90 uses hydraulic leveling for the screens and hydraulic jack on tongue of trailer, increasing efficiency and productivity.The most compact cleaning package on the market that can meet the demands of a directional drilling jobsite. 

A 25-hp (18.7-kW) Kubota Tier 4 engine provides the power for recycling, supply to the drill and all hydraulic functions, including the shaker action. The 450-gallon mud tank - 110-gallon  clean tank and 340-gallon first-pass mud tank - use a 3-inch connection at the drain for vacuuming out mud, minimizing jobsite cleanup.  A 300-gallon fresh water tank provides extra drilling fluid capacity and support for equipment cleanup.

Single-point operation simplifies performance without the need to move the unit; controls can be reached either from the onboard catwalk or from ground level. Hydraulic pit pump provides more than enough mud for recycling, keeping up with the high demands of the job; variable control of hydraulics helps fine-tune slurry delivery. 

Rear onboard hopper catches all screened spoils; integral mixer allows drying additives to be mixed into the spoils and discharged through rear hydraulic door. Optional remote control of the pumps—an exclusive Ditch Witch feature—simplifies operation for smaller crews. Optional rugged, commercial-grade trailer features LED lights, hydraulic jack and integral tool storage for all operational components. The MR90 includes an onboard high-pressure wash pump for cleaning equipment.
