Sonic drilling is a method that can offer high quality core samples and fast penetration rates in unconsolidated overburden materials. High frequency vibration produced in the drill head and applied to drill rod or casing, works to relieve wall friction while penetrating even hard formations like till, boulders, or bedrock.
Our rubber tracked Boart LS250 is a medium sized sonic rig outfitted with an automatic rod handler, full rotational head and SPT hammer. Sonic sampling options include the standard 4”X6” method and DT45. This unit is supported by a Kubota SVL-75 tracked loader and has a depth capacity of 250’.
