Watertec 24 Water Well Drilling Rig

With a pullback capacity of 24,000kgf, the high performance Watertec 24 water well drilling rig is capable of drilling to great depths while mounted on a 6 x 6 truck.

The machine is built to be robust, reliable and able to operate for continuous periods in some of the world’s harshest environments. A 900cfm/350psi compressor is mounted on board as standard and provides air for DTH hammer drilling and well development.

Favoured by government, NGOs, charities and contractors where greater depths are required in arid areas, or for larger diameter bores required for irrigation or larger scale water supply where highly productive aquifers are present.

Features include:

  • Pullback capacity of 24,000kgf
  • Capable of mud rotary, air and flooded reverse drilling
  • Various mounting options including 6×6 or 8×8 truck, or customer own support vehicle/structure
  • High torque rotary head with hydraulic side shift and head tilt
  • High pressure air/water swivel
  • Main winch for tools and casing
  • Auxiliary winch for tool handling
  • Selection of on-board air compressors
  • Selection of on-board mud pumps
  • Can be supplied with complete tooling package
  • Onsite training available from Dando drilling engineers
