As a Rig Owner or Operator, what says ‘Value’ when looking for a new drill rig? Versatility ... Power ... Support ... Brand ... Creature Comforts ... Performance? Check out the 3230DT: We’ve got’em all covered!
The 3230DT may be the most versatile machine Geoprobe Systems® has ever designed and manufactured. Big statement, but we think we’ve got the facts and feedback to back that up.
The Geoprobe® 3230DT is a mid-sized tracked drill rig combining advanced direct push functionality with traditional geotechnical auger rig and high-speed rotary drilling capabilities. All of the features of the 3230DT come together to create a rig that’s efficient as what it does. You may not use all of the functions on every project, but if you need to auger to bedrock and then do a confirmation core, it’s all there ... in one rig. It transitions from direct push to wet rotary drilling in less than five minutes!
But what good is all that if you can’t operate the machine? No problem here. This rig is “simple to run” and “very easy to learn,” according to Buford Collier, Senior Project Manager for C&S Consulting in Kilgore, TX. He invited a consultant friend over to a jobsite while he was doing some geotechnical drilling.”This guy had never drilled a day in his life,” he said. “After I spent about 15 minutes telling him about the controls, he worked with the machine nearly two hours as I called out instructions while I worked with the tooling. It was like a ‘play day’ for us! It’s fun to run.”
Fred McKay, Drilling Division Manager for EnviroTek in Tampa, FL, reports that they’ve increased their capabilities by five times. “We’ve been going through a formation that’s high in clay, phosphates, and limestone. It’s compressed and it’s dense,” Fred said, “But our 3230DT is going right through it.” His field team is enjoying the rig. “We got up-to-speed on it really fast; it’s easy to use.”
“This is a great rig, and we’re really pleased,” Buford added, “but no one can beat your [Geoprobe®] support! I knew that going in to this machine purchase. I’ve run other drill rigs in my life, and no one treats us as good as you guys!”

“Our 3230DT is so versatile. We’ve had it in slop. We’ve had it in rock. And we’ve had no issues. Young guys with hardly any drilling experience pick up on the controls
with no problems. It’s just fun to run!”

Initially seeing drilling as a route toward a career in consulting, Kyle Brown discovered he liked drilling more than engineering. So, when the industry in Alberta, Canada, slowed down during 2015 he saw it as the perfect opportunity to launch his own bus
