Eric Herrera, Driller for Strongarm Environmental, uses the 6620DT to tag bedrock.
In 2008, when Strongarm Environmental Field Services first purchased their Geoprobe® 6620DT, they had a very large sampling project on a very complex 2,800 acre remedial site assessment in Southern California. After completing hundreds of borings on the site with all sizes of Geoprobe® truck-mounted equipment, Casey Crosby, President of Strongarm, determined that “the 6620DT was the right piece of equipment for the job.”
“We couldn’t have anticipated how awesome this piece of equipment was for this site work,” said lead driller Francisco Rodriguez. Over nine years later, as the project is winding down to completion, the Strongarm field team is still out completing borings down to bedrock with their 6620DT.
“It’s amazing that over the years we have used the 6620DT on literally a thousand projects,” Francisco said, “with absolutely no downtime. And it has taken a beating on some jobs! We take a lot of pride in the equipment we own,” he said, “and feel like our regular maintenance and the outstanding quality of the Geoprobe® equipment makes this rig a tireless workhorse”.
Casey added, “We realize that the new standard for fieldwork is the 7822DT (or larger), but we’ve been able to get so much production out of this rig we have been reluctant to upgrade just yet.” The size of the 6620DT is perfect for fitting into most of the limited size spaces that they are asked to work in.
“This rig compliments the other four Geoprobe® rigs we operate, and gives us plenty of versatility to complete all of the work we‘ve been asked to do,” Francisco said.
