  • 8150LS Rotary Sonic Rig


    Full-Size Rotary Sonic Rig


    50K Dynamic Force

    The 8150LS Sonic Rig advances 10-ft. tooling and has a 13-ft. 1-in. head travel.



    Rotary Sonic Rig

    The 8150LS is a full-size sonic rig that delivers big sonic power to the customer. Designed and built as a direct response to requests from large, multi-national companies, the new sonic rig can continuously sample and set casing in excess of 300 ft. (90 m) in a wide range of formations. It made its initial appearance at our 2014 Open House by driving out of a 40 ft. shipping container in the center of the arena (complete with rod handler and sonic head).

    The Geoprobe® 8150LS Rotary Sonic has been proving itself in the field ... so much so, Geoprobe® sonic customers are purchasing more than one! For those of you who wanted a larger platform with more power to advance larger diameter tools to great depth, this sonic is for you. A key feature of this rig is the Geoprobe® designed and manufactured GV5 Sonic Head with 50K dynamic force. Call us to arrange for a demo: 785-825-1842

    Design & Engineering

    “We chose the Geoprobe® 8150LS sonic rig because of the design and engineering of the rig, the quality and availability of the tooling, the knowledge and commitment of the Geoprobe® staff, the service department relationships, and the success we’ve had with the ten other Geoprobe® machines we have owned.”

    Features, Options & Accessories

    • Compact Package
      Fits into an ocean-going container

    • Rod Handling Option
      More powerful. Safely handle large diameter tooling off of vertical.

    • Drill Mast Sideshift
      Quickly and easily line up on hole without moving the tracks.

    • NEW SONIC HEAD - More Power from the Head
      This head has a theoretical dynamic force of 50,000 lb. at 150 Hz, and a 2-speed rotation with 4,000 ft-lbf and up to 140 rpm. And, most importantly, it's designed, built, and serviced by Team Geoprobe® so you can be confident when you take this head into the field.

    • NEW TRACK CHASSIS - The Ripple Effect
      The 225 horsepower 8150LS is unique in several ways. Not only does the drill mast move fore and aft relative to the track base, it also can be shifted left to right, up and down, and run at angles up to 45 degrees off of vertical. Additional winch options, including a 400+ foot sand-line were added. Since an 8150LS can go deeper and accommodate larger tooling we added a 14 in. breakout option and more powerful rod handler. We also made extras, like a shifting breakout and weight-on-bit control--standard. And since we wanted to make mobilization between international projects simpler, we designed the 8150LS to drive right in to a 40 ft. high cube shipping container (door opening: 101 in. x 92 in. [31 m x 28m]).
