When it comes time to buy that new drill rig for your fleet, how do you go about it? Do you stay with the same manufacturer or do you comparison shop? Like with any big purchase, the information involved can be overwhelming. Each manufacturer’s offerings are different from the next or are they?
Let’s face it, most contractors have their brand favs but do you really know what’s available to you? We want to help you get started. Each year, we ask the drill rig manufacturers to give readers a glimpse into what they can offer contractors. The following slides share the compact, midsize and maxi rig product lines of the HDD rig manufacturers. For more specific data, you need to directly contact the manufacturer — they would love to hear from you and discuss your needs.
As always, all the information in this section comes directly from the rig manufacturers. No direct comparisons between equipment or manufacturers are implied.
