Large Drilling Rigs

Soil Surveys large rig fleet comprises a Hydrapower Explorer 500 and two Hydrapower Scout rigs. These truck mounted and powerful rigs are equipped for deep borehole drilling (in excess of 150m). These rigs have auger (solid and hollow stem), cased wash bore, wash bore, wireline and core drilling facilities, along with full sampling (U50, U75) and testing (SPT, Vane Shear) capabilities and are available for investigation work on your sites or as a contract drilling option. We can respond quickly and efficiently to your most urgent needs…large or small, anywhere in Australia. To complement our drilling services, Soil Surveys can provide engineering supervision of our drilling rigs. Our team of experienced Geotechnical Engineers and Geologists are available to manage and coordinate the most demanding of investigation programs and ensure all works are carried out to the highest standard
