Our drilling rigs range in size from small, limited access machines to large platform/big performance rotary sonic rigs. We strive to make our machines as flexible as possible for our customers, giving them flexibility in the field. Many of our machines cover a range of applications, making them true combination drill rigs. Customers describe our equipment as versatile, innovative, easy-to-use, and supported like no other drilling equipment they own. And what moves Geoprobe® customers to purchase additional equipment? They know our customer service and support is unmatched in the industry. Below are some of the machine types Geoprobe® designs and manufacturers:

Our rigs are compact and hydraulically powered. They use static weight in combination with dynamic forces such as percussion, rotation, and sonic vibration to advance tooling into the subsurface. Give us a call at 785-825-1842, to talk about your project requirements!

Geoprobe Systems® offers both full-size and mid-size rotary sonic drilling rigs and machines with multiple configurations and powerful sonic heads allowing you to choose the size and power options that best fit your needs. All parts of the Sonic Rigs focus on safety, efficiency and accuracy in order to help make the job successful. Rig operators also benefit from two main safety features of the Sonic Rigs. One is the adjustable, easy-to-use control system which features an operator presence bar and emergency stop for operator safety. Multiple emergency stops are located around the rig and on the wireless and tethered remote systems. The control panel also features an integrated systems display that provides real-time systems analysis and a suite of built-in diagnostic tools. The swing-arm controls swings freely from the rig and lets the operator be in the position needed to help align a rod or to be at a safe, comfortable distance away from a spinning drill string.
Another key safety feature is a rod-handling system that also increases productivity while decreasing operator fatigue. This powerful system can safely handle large diameter 1.5 m and 3 m rods and casings, minimizing heavy lifting and manual effort. Adjustable angles also permit precise head alignment.
The power for our Sonic Rigs comes from a ten-year researched and tested Sonic Head program before introducing them to the market. The Geoprobe® designed and manufactured patented Sonic Heads are capable of running 10-ft. tooling (the 8250LS is capable of running 20-ft tooling). The 50K dynamic force has the power to advance 4.5-in. to 10 in. diameter tooling. And the two-speed oscillation has the torque needed to maintain rotation in tight formations. The Sonic Head features a centerline side-shift function which moves the head side-to-side so you can work the inside diameter of the rod without moving the foot or without re-positioning the machine. This allows the operator to easily and safely access the dual pivoting winch mast system.
With Geoprobe® Sonic, you can produce more cost-effective holes while retrieving more accurate subsurface data. You can sample multiple geologic formations, including consolidated materials (rock), glacial till, and backfill rubble.
The Geoprobe® Sonic Package is inclusive: rig, sonic head, tooling, training, service … everything is designed, produced, and supported by Team Geoprobe®.
