Water Well Rig
Engineered design and modern construction to provide you the power to tackle your tough holes.
Drill larger wells with a compact drilling machine that easily maneuvers on job sites. The DM450 provides ample head feed speed - activated with a fast feed circuit - to flush the cuttings out of holes drilled in sand or clay, providing a clean hole to drop well casing or cathodic protection anodes. The rig also features the top head rotation speed needed to handle tricky formations – such as sticky clay.

DM450 Water Well Rig
Engineered design and modern construction maximizes power to quickly and easily complete jobs while streamlining maintenance and troubleshooting. The control panel simplifies operation with its mechanical controls, which corresponds to easier training of new operators. The table assembly – with an opening to handle up to 16-inch casing – is positioned further back fromthe rig, making it easier to handle tooling and set casing.
Multiple mud pump and air compressor options mean the rig can be configured for specific geographic areas. Armed with the fast head feed speed, many DM450 owners successfully complete water well, geothermal, or cathodic protection drilling with the same machine. Some options, such as sandline winch or pipe spinner systems, can be added to minimize equipment on geothermal job sites.
