Our Comacchio GEO305 is a compact sized hydraulic drilling rig mounted on rubber crawler tracks. Drilling operations include geotechnical investigation such as soil investigation carried out with coring, in situ penetration tests (SPT), sample collection, installation of piezometers, inclinometers and other geotechnical instrumentation as well as environmental studies and monitoring activities.

The drilling rig has regular monthly maintenance inspections that are recorded on a schedule and kept with the machine. It is fully equipped for all facets of geotechnical and environmental drilling.
