Power and performance are still key for drillers focused on size for sampling in remote locations where roads or travel is limited, or for tight, hard-to-access areas that place limits on the height, weight, and overall size of a machine. Geoprobe® direct push drill rigs can be, for example, mounted on two wheels and powered from an independent power source, they can be a tracked model to squeeze through heavy forests or easily loaded on to airplanes or small shipping containers, or they are heli-portable and can be disassembled into three sections for easy and quick assembly on the ground.
Generating a name for itself and redefining the way sites are investigated in the environmental industry, Geoprobe® continues to advance direct push drilling with its line of high-quality, hydraulically-powered direct push drilling rigs. Since our start in 1988 building a machine for the Environmental Protection Agency, Geoprobe® has listened to its customers to push the direct push drilling industry through continued investment in innovation, refining the efficiency of a range of drill rigs for sale, including limited access through larger combination drill rigs.
Drill rigs for sale considered to be direct push drilling machines share the inherent “pushing” of tools and sensors into the ground without the use of drilling to remove soil or to make a path for the tool. Geoprobe® direct push drill rigs for sale rely on relatively small amounts of vehicle weight combined with percussion as energy for the advancement of a tool string.
With a variety of drill rigs for sale you can complete a variety of direct push drilling – even to 100 feet or more where the geology and soil conditions are appropriate – such as:
Obtain continuous soil cores or discrete soil samples
Drive samplers to obtain groundwater sample or vapor samples
Insert permanent sampling implants and air sparging points
Drive a conductivity sensor probe to map surface lithology
Install small monitoring wells
For direct push drilling, the range of drill rigs for sale have displaced traditional drilling methods as the preferred mode of collecting subsurface samples particularly in unconsolidated sediments.

“The EPA representatives on site were convinced direct push was the right way to do this job. We weren’t turning up soils that would have to be drummed and then disposed of. It was a whole lot cleaner process.”
