Trailer / Skid Mounted CME 45 Drill Rig

  • Economical, efficient rig that can drill solid or hollow-stem augers.
  • Can be mounted on a truck, trailer or ATV carrier to allow for damage free movement on paved surfaces and sensitive grassy areas.
  • Ideal for shallow environmental and geotechnical drilling in parking lots, gas stations, residential areas, etc.
  • Short tower is ideal for use in limited overhead clearance projects (low clearance drilling).
  • Can drill holes up to 13 inches [33 cm] in diameter.
  • Power is provided by a deck-mounted Wisconsin 4 cylinder gas engine.
  • Capable of rock coring with BQ or NQ rod sizes and wash bore drilling.

Track Mounted CME 550 All Terrain Rig

  • Rig has the power, versatility, and dependability to handle geotechnical and environmental jobs with maximum efficiency – a drilling industry staple!
  • The machine’s large foot print & low centre of gravity make it ideal for navigating through difficult and remote terrains including forests and swampy areas.
  • Low impact rubber tracks allow for damage free movement on paved surfaces and sensitive grassy areas.
  • Ideal size and manoeuvrability allows for excellent access to confined sites and parking lots.
  • Ideal for smaller diameter well installations, relatively shallow geotechnical drilling, pavement design investigations & sampling programs
  • Short tower is ideal for use in limited overhead clearance projects (low clearance drilling).
  • Able to drill solid and hollow stem augurs and can take on projects that involve rock coring (BQ or NQ), wash boring, and tri cones.

Skidder Tire Mounted CME 750 All Terrain Rig

  • TBTE’s most powerful rig - the ultimate all terrain vehicle for drilling in remote locations including forests, swamps, bogs, mudded areas, and mountains.
  • Easily transportable – the rubber tires will not damage paved surfaces.
  • Mounted on a 4 wheel drive Flotation carrier (7.2 psi ground pressure). Low ground bearing pressure means less impact on the environment. Extremely important in environmentally sensitive areas such as parks, farms or golf courses.
  • Dependable mechanical rotary has 13,000 foot pounds [17,628 Nm] of torque for auger drilling holes up to 16 inches [41 cm] in diameter.
  • Powered with a Ford 300 inch 6 cylinder turbocharged diesel engine.
  • Ideal for air rotary drilling, mud rotary drilling, and hollow / solid-stem auger applications. Can setup for wire line bedrock coring. Features a quick disconnect mast for drilling in low overhead areas.
  • Hydraulic automatic hammer offers consistent blow counts.
  • Commonly used for geotechnical and environmental drilling and sampling programs, installation of monitoring wells and piezometers, and pressure-meter testing of soil and bedrock. Capable of rock coring with BQ or NQ rod sizes.

Tri-pod supported Cathead equipment

  • Consists of an aluminum Tripod system which is capable of mounting a motorized cathead to one of the legs.
  • Tripod system can drive continuous split spoons or NW size drill casing, if required.
  • This unit is beneficial in areas of bog where an all terrain vehicle is unable to travel.
  • The tripod system is also useful in areas of side slopes as well as limited access areas where traditional drills cannot gain access
  • The space requirements for this unit are approximately 12 feet in diameter and 10 feet of height.
