Drive Sampling Rig
The Complete Solution for Environmental Soil Sampling and In-Situ Testing
The GEO Rig is a highly mobile mini-tracked drilling unit ideal for working inside and around the edges of buildings, low-headroom sites, slopes, embankments and areas with restricted access.
The rig takes soil samples by a percussive method known as “drive sampling”. A mechanically operated drop weight is used to drive sample tubes into the ground, and an integral hydraulic jack with 7-tonne pullback force to extract them.
The GEO is designed for use by a single operator and drilling can begin within minutes of arrival on site. The light weight of each unit ensures that site disturbance is kept to a minimum, which is especially important on environmentally sensitive sites.
