Powerful Turbo-Diesel Engine

POWERFUL TURBO-DIESEL ENGINE Equipped with a smooth running  Cummins  260 HP T3 Turbo Diesel.

Proprietary Drill Head

Our P sized Drill Head is rated to take up to 500hp and 70,000lbs of pull-back. We have eliminated the main sources of Drill Head failures including the chuck release bearing, internal opening cylinder, and gear transmission.

DOUBLE BREAKOUT FOOTCLAMP

Footclamps require incredible holding power. At the same time, they need to be easy to maintain and operate. While others opt to use overly complex “chucks”, the innovative Hydracore footclamps use two standard hydraulic cylinders. The cylinders on this PW (S) sized clamp hold up to 70,000lbs and one set of jaws works for all rod sizes. No need for pipe wrenches on this rig! The powerful Double Breakout Footclamp can separate even the most stubborn rod joints.

Adjustable Saddle Bearings

Keeping with our maintenance friendly designs our drills offer adjustable saddle bearings. These are adjusted in several minutes allowing you to focus on putting core in the box.

Direct Acting Hydraulic Control

Direct acting hydraulics are the gold standard in the industry. We design all drilling functions for direct control. Optimal reliability, and maximum uptime.

Ease of Access

All hydraulic equipment needs attention at some point. Our innovative control panel is designed to hinge open and expose all components for ease of maintenance and cleaning.
