JK205 Track Mounted Rig – Compact Yet Durable

By 21/05/2016January 24th, 2020No Comments

We recently added to our fleet of drilling rigs with the JK205 track mounted rig. With access to sites becoming increasingly restricted this rig can access many sites that larger rigs cannot.

It is only 1.4m wide and 2.1m high, but can still complete all the functions of larger rigs, such as auger drilling, wash boring, and coring of bedrock to depths of 60m. In addition, the drilling mast can be shortened so that it only requires 3m of headroom to work where overhead obstructions make drilling with larger rigs impossible.

It has already proved its worth at Roselands shopping centre drilling within a very tight area inside the multi-level car park, probably causing some strange looks where the drilling mast could be seen sticking up to the level above where the rig was operating.
