The 3230DT and 3200 are TRUE combination machines, which means their utilization rates go up simply because they are well suited for both geotechnical and environmental work.
The versatility of the 32 Series machines lies within the 4-function CB6 Combo Head ... the performance master for these rigs. There’s rotation for augering, mud and wet rotary, and rock coring work, and a patented hydraulic head clamp for safely and quickly pulling 1.25- to 6.0 in. rods while maintaining an open ID for downhole work. There’s a percussion hammer for direct push work, like driving 6-in. casing for monitoring well installation, and an automatic drop hammer that hydraulically swings out over the hole.
EnviroTek in Tampa, FL, uses a 3230DT to run high-speed wireline tooling at a Florida mining site.
There’s a side-shift feature for moving the head so you can work the inside diameter of the rod without moving the drill mast.
What about torque? These machines have plenty of it! There’s low-end torque for hollow stem applications and plenty of high end speed for rock coring and air and mud rotary.
And don’t forget the control panel ... it’s adjustable, easy-to-use, and well planned. You can separately adjust weight on bit, rotation speed, and pump flow for excellent operator control in the field.
The most noticeable option on these machines is the 23-ft. telescoping mast and dual winches. They take the work out of setting monitoring wells or utilizing splitspoon samplers while tripping 20-ft. sections of rods at a time.
There’s 800 rpm for coring bedrock. There are drilling controls to do rock coring. Do you need 20 feet of rock coring done at 20 locations? This machine is perfect! And remember there’s a percussion hammer to set up to 6-in. casing.
There are way too many features, options and applications possible that make the 32 Series machines too powerful and too versatile to not take a second look at them.
When You Come to Geoprobe® You Don’t Just Look!
“After seeing the 3230DT in person, in action, pictures and specs alone cannot describe the power and versatility of this machine until you are hands-on and experience it! The 3230DT can handle all of your drilling and direct push needs.”
