NEW 3126GT: Simplify Your Geotech
No one wants to be stuck in the stone age, which is what it can feel like trying to squeeze profits out of a clunky conventional drill rig. The old dinosaur lumbers into position completing only one application while guzzling fuel and spitting fluids before breaking down – putting you behind schedule and over budget. Meanwhile you dream of a modern-day machine that swiftly slides from rotary to automatic drop hammer, even to CPT or direct push, without having to reposition mast or machine.
This innovative centerline head side shift is a reality on the compact, off-road NEW 3126GT.
Hands-free rotary and head feed controls reduce strain on driller when completing applications like mud rotary.
Advance augers with the 2 or 4-speed rotary head. Then use the machine hydraulics to slide the head over to position the hands-free automatic drop hammer for driving SPT samples between core runs. Or use the controls to slide the head the other way to conduct CPT logging using the integrated CPT head-feed rate controls complete with cone overload protection. Or use the GH63 direct push hammer to see the subsurface with Direct Image® tooling. No manipulating the drill mast position. No mobilizing multiple machines.
So forget the days of herding multiple rigs to a job site. Forge a brighter future using the centerline head side shift to simplify the process of traditional geotech techniques — augering, mud rotary, SPT, Shelby tubes, hard rock cores, CPT – and even direct push. A taller telescoping drill mast specifically designed for geotech work with heavier winch options, 105” head travel, and 36k push and 48k pull at the head-feed cylinder means greater pull back – ideal for drive and wash – and head travel.
All this within a smaller footprint than the relic you've been using, which still includes room for a separate hydraulic circuit for the mud pump (stabilizing mud flow) and space for accessories.
But don’t fret about having to break the bank to afford becoming an industry leader. The price point comes in lower than you might expect, and all the features minimize your operating costs. The end result – launching your drilling production and profit light years ahead.
