3100GT Features You Should See for Yourself
Almost immediately after my return to Geoprobe® I was tossed the keys to our demo 3100GT and told to “go run it." I was impressed to say the least. Four things stood out to me:
EASY TO RUN:
After taking some time to familiarize myself with the controls I was quickly able to get set and start making holes. The control panel is laid out with efficiency in mind, common functions are grouped together making it easy to move several levers at the same time. Storage for common hand tools and hooks for hanging items are right there at the control panel and even a spot for the Interlocking Split Spoon on the breakout, keeping it right where it needs to be when you’re ready to start taking blow counts.
TRULY A COMBINATION RIG:
Whatever the job, this rig does it well. Perform SPT borings (augers & mud rotary), collect Shelby tube samples, take rock cores, or push CPT cones – none of these tasks are compromised. There simply are no trade-offs.
QUICK TO SWITCH APPLICATIONS:
Once you tower up and set the drillmast, you don’t move it thanks to the head side shift feature. Between the conveniently laid out control panel and the huge head side shift feature, switching from turning augers to using the auto drop hammer and back is EASY – everything just lines up.
COMFORTABLE TO DRIVE:
It's almost like driving a pickup truck. It doesn’t feel top-heavy going around corners, has plenty of power to keep up with traffic in town and on the highway, good brakes when needed, and has a big enough fuel tank that you don’t have to stop at every gas station along the way.
