No CDL Required: Saves Customers Money & Hassle
Geoprobe® continues to engineer machine configurations that allow drilling companies to mobilize to and from projects without the use of a CDL* (commercial driver’s license).
Tom Omli shares, “In the past many customers mobilized to jobsites using a heavy duty pick-up truck and construction trailer with no DOT concerns. Now this same configuration is commonly being pulled over by law enforcement and drivers are expected to have a Class A CDL documentation.”
As one customer recently shared, “Developing quality drillers and driller helpers is one thing, but expecting to build up a team of drillers that also have CDL licenses is even more difficult and at times feels nearly impossible.”
At Geoprobe® we realize there is a wide range of DOT enforcement that our customers encounter. In some regions customers appear to have flexibility in their choice of mobilization equipment, while in other states and counties DOT enforcement is very stringent.
Our goal is simple: Provide our customers powerful machines that are compact in overall size and weight. For many customers, the compact rig size gives our customer a substantial economic advantage as compared to mobilizing a large, traditional drilling rig.
