CME-45C mounted on 300 carrier Hydraulic Rod holder and Breakout wrenchHydraulic rod holder and breakout wrench

The hydraulic rod holder makes your job quicker and safer. It not only pivots from on-hole to off-hole positions, but also hydraulically moves in and out. For efficient operation, the breakout wrench is mounted at the pivot point of the rod holder arm.


CME-45C Automatic SPT HammerAutomatic SPT hammer

Our 140 pound [63.5 kg] automatic hammer gives you extremely consistent and accurate Standard Penetration Test results, meeting all ASTM-D-1586 requirements. Thats because there are no ropes or cables to impede the free fall of the weight.

The hammer swings from stored position to on-hole position. Since raising and lowering is done hydraulically, set up is quick and almost effortless.

For maximum safety, all moving parts are enclosed, including the impact area between the weight and the anvil. A 340/140 pound [154/63.5 kg] hammer is also available.

CME-45C mounted on 300 carrier auger and rod storageAuger and rod storage

Above deck auger and rod racks are provided with the drill carrier.

Several tool box,water tank, auger and rod storage configurations are available.

 Slide bases make the job easier and quicker.

Slide base options are available in both in-out and sideways movement of the drill on the carrier.

A 15 inch [38.1 cm] in-out movement allows you to quickly move the drill on and off the borehole and align the sheaves for lifting tools with the cathead or any of the hoists.

A 8 inch [20.3 cm] sideways movement gives you even more versatility. Aligning augers or rods when making connections is easy. If the bit drifts off at an angle when you start a hole, you can quickly straighten it to a vertical position.

Since the upright and optional mast are mounted directly to the drill frame, they move with the drill when the slide base is used. That means you can drill in any position within a 170 square inch [1097 cm²] area without moving the carrier.

If you have ever tried to line up your rig on an existing bore hole, you’ve probably already recognized another benefit of the slide base.

Angle drilling system for special applications

This unique system allows you to drill holes at various angles between horizontal and vertical. It is especially effective for drilling under ponds, storage tanks or other structures. When used with our patented Continuous Sample Tube System, you can even take soil sample while drilling angle holes.

The angle drilling system will also allow you to drill vertically with the rig positioned on an uphill slope. That can eliminate the time consuming job of leveling an area on which to place the rig.

Since the kelly drive is directly connected to the right angle drive box, you can raise and lower the mast with the drive train already connected and ready to go.
