Lightweight, Compact DM450 Water Well Rig
For more than 20 years DRILLMAX® has been providing drillers with the model DM450 rotary rig. Primarily utilized to complete residential water wells, commercial geothermal, and shallow cathodic protection drilling, the popularity of the DM450 product has been rooted in its combination of power while maintaining a relatively lightweight and compact design. Recently our engineers began an in-depth evaluation, reviewing and considering improvements on each aspect of the legacy DM450. The result is the all new DRILLMAX® DM450.
The new DM450 comes standard with a totally redesigned drillmast with 26,000-lbs of pullback and a tophead carriage that uses rollers instead of slides. A long list of additional improvements were incorporated as well — too many to list here. The goals for the NEW DM450 rig were simple: enhance current operator features, simplify manufacturing, improve serviceability, and reduce weight where applicable.
