A drilling rig is a machine that creates holes in the earth's subsurface. Drilling rigs can be massive structures housing equipment used to drill water wells, oil wells, or natural gas extraction wells, or they can be small enough to be moved manually by one person and such are called augers.
Hydraulic Earth Drills with a maneuverable three-wheel chassis are powerful, reliable, reversible hydraulic drive, torque-free digging tools with no kickback. With their extra torque, these powerful earth drills are ideal for hole drilling in rocky or heavy clay soils.
Let's begin with some hard facts: about 97% of our fresh water supply lays hidden beneath the Earth's surface in underground aquifers and there are over fifteen million water wells in America. People dig wells because a fresh and clean water supply is one of the most important things to have ...
