Geotec 9000 Geotechnical Drilling Rig

The Geotec 9000 has 10,000kgf of pullback and is a reliable and robust geotechnical rig on the compact 9000 series footprint.

The rig can be mounted on a heavy duty 4 x 4 truck or, alternatively, on tracks, trailer or the customer’s own support vehicle or structure. Optional equipment for the rig now includes an automatic SPT (Standard Penetration Test) and dynamic sounding system, and this unique percussive hammer is also able to drive Dando’s renowned 3D sampling system. In crawler mounted form, the narrow 1.4m wide track system is able to carry the rig in to limited access areas typical for site investigation and geotec work. The mast structure allows the loading and pulling of 3m drill rods.
