Rugged high quality rigs made in England with very low inputs - quick two man set-up and
operation; they cover the entire range of materials, with nothing extra to buy
if the ground is harder than you thought. Machines are permanent, long life and maintanable.
Designed and built in the UK for use world-wide.
At their heart is the highly successful Consallen design of clutchless
freefall drilling winch, powered by either direct drive engines or by
hydraulic power. Winches are available either built into rigs or stand alone.

They are suitable equipment for drilling contractors drilling water wells, site
investigations, window sampling, remediation wells, drainage holes, cleaning & bailing and
environmental drilling. Can be used for setting drive points, hydraulic
(jet) percussion drilling, peizometers & insitu testing, geothermal drilling, and
of drilling rigs is a combination of the machinery, tools
& equipment, materials to be drilled, proper planning, and operator skill. In suitable conditions
the Forager-55/1250 can provide boreholes with 8-inch casing to 15 metres; with
6-inch casing to 60 metres and with 5-inch casing to 90 metres. Open hole drilling
to 145 metres has been achieved below 90 metres of 5-inch casing. The fully braced
tripod can lift 9,000 Kg.
The Standard Forager-55 rig weighs about 500 KG and when folded, can be towed by
a small car or pickup, and is easily towed off road in conditions which would be
impossible with heavier machines. It is light enough to be man-handled to most
locations, and the winch can be used to pull it into extreme places.
