THE GEOTECHNICAL “P60” ROTARY SLOPE‐CLIMBING RIG

The Geotechnical ‘P60’ Rotary rig is a unique track mounted drilling rig capable of undertaking dynamic sampling and rotary drilling on slopes of up to 45 degrees.

The ‘P60’ has been developed from our famous ‘P45’ rig to give the option of deeper holes and the ability to core to great depths. The rig is usually operated by a crew of three and is commissioned on a daily basis.
