Video: Geoprobe® Model 540MT

Direct Push Power on a Dollie

Drillers seeking a limited access drill rig easily maneuvered by two people choose the 540MT. With the rear wheel and handle, pivot 360 degrees to conquer confined spaces and low ceilings. Additional advantages of the 540MT limited access drill rig include:

  • Bi-directional hammer rotation creates capacity for concrete drilling
  • Less than 29-inches high when folded, low ceilings are no barrier
  • Accompanied by a PortaCo power unit for increased mobility

Owners praise the reliable power produced from the same components as other 5400 series machines – with the flexibility to handle small direct push jobs.

DT22 Soil Sampling System

Video: DT22 Soil Sampling System Overview

The Geoprobe® DT22 Soil Sampling System is a direct push system for collecting continuous core samples of unconsolidated materials from within a sealed casing of Geoprobe® 2.25- inch outside diameter probe rods. Samples are collected and retrieved within a liner that is threaded onto the leading end of a string of Geoprobe® 1.25-inch OD light-weight center rods and are inserted to the bottom of the outer casing.

SP22 Groundwater Sampler

The Screen Point 22 (SP22) Groundwater Sampler from Geoprobe Systems® was designed to keep the screen away from all percussive energy while the sampler is lowered downhole, thus extending the life of the screen. The SP22 can be used alone as a groundwater grab sampler or groundwater profiling tool, or with the DT22 Soil Sampling System. The screens can be deployed using either 1.25-inch Lightweight Center Rods or PVC riser. Designed for tough probing conditions, the screen head on the fully retrievable sampler adapts to either a stainless steel or PVC screen.

MC5 Core Sampler Soil Sampling System (LWCR)

Our MC5 Soil Sampling System is a single tube, discrete or continuous system with unmatched durability. MC5 Light Weight Center Rod Soil Sampling System. The MC5 1.25-inch Center Rod System was designed for the absolute worst of the worst direct push probing conditions. “These are conditions that we normally do not recommend probing in,” according to Mike Carlin, Project Engineer, “so we developed the toughest soil sampling system in the direct push industry ... it’s a brute!” Macro-Core® is a registered trademark of Kejr, Inc., Salina, KS.
