Video Summary:

Confidently complete CPT testing with added features on Geoprobe® ‘CPT-ready’ rigs. Our newest rigs – the 3126GT and 3100GT – include downforce limit control in the menu of the system display, allowing you to derate the downforce and observe the pressure being placed on the cone. This provides another operator checkpoint to protect your tooling. These rigs also include automatic head feed rate control to provide a consistent 2cm/sec CPT push rate, meeting ASTM standards. And with the centerline head side shift on these rigs, swiftly switch from augering to pushing CPT when conditions dictate. Watch the video and learn more about how you can maximize the value of your investment by choosing a ‘CPT-ready’ drilling platform best suited to your specific business model.

3126GT geotechnical drill features centerline head side shift

3126GT Geotechnical Drill Rig


With more than 20 years of CPT tooling and machine experience, Geoprobe® has engineered both static and anchored platforms to meet customer needs. Dedicated CPT platforms include the 2060CPT and 20CPT Press. Multi-application drill rigs like the 3230DT, 7822DT, 3100GT, and 3126GT quickly and easily utilize anchors to perform CPT while still effectively completing other drilling techniques - all with a single machine. These rigs are rated for 15 tons or more of hydraulic push capacity, not typical for drill rigs.

The Geoprobe® 3100GT and 3126GT Geotechnical Drill Rigs can perform geotechnical drilling and then quickly and simply switch to pushing CPT. Anchoring can be done using a few simple components: a rod guide, anchor, and anchor bridge. When pushing CPT, automatic head feed rate control advances the cone at a steady 2 centimeters per second specified by ASTM Standard D5778. This provides hands-free operation during advancement of each rod.

With drilling equipment and CPT tooling engineered to work together, Geoprobe® is truly your one stop shop for CPT.
