CME 55 TRAILER MOUNT DRILL

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling / Exploration Drilling / Heli-portable Drilling

Our trailer mounted CME 55 drill rig was Determination Drilling's first piece of equipment when the company was started, and still shows it's worth to this date. This CME 55 is mounted on a tandem axle trailer and pulled by a Chevrolet 3500 truck. Because of its size and manouverability, it allows for excellent access to confined sites, parking lots or moderatley off road areas. With its shorter tower height, this rig has been indoors in multiple factory sites without shutting down operations in the plant.

This drill is mainly used for the standard geotechnical drilling and environmental drilling methods, though we have customized this drill to perform exploration drilling by adding the necessities to rock core.

To further it's functionality, it has also allowed us to operate several times in Northern Ontario for heli portable drilling. The entire trailer and drill can fit into a Buffalo plane to fly to site, then the drill is dismantled in four pieces for the helicopter to lift.

Our CME 55 trailer mount is capable of drilling with solid stem and hollow stem augers and can be equipped for rock coring, wash boring and triconing.

7822 DT GEOPROBE DRILL

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling / Exploration Drilling / Percussion Drilling

The Geoprobe 7822 DT is a rubber tracked high-capacity direct push machine with a narrow platform for limited access areas.
It is fully capable of direct push probing with the GH64 percussion hammer, which now has two new significant features: a Modular Percussion Power Cell and integrated two-speed, bi-directional rotation. This is an industry first, and allows us to perform numerous rotational applications, including surface pavement coring and subsurface rock coring, with a rotation speed of up to 550 rpm.

The GA4000 augerhead allows for augering with solid and hollow stem augering to depths over 100', with the capabiltie of coring bedrock through the augers. We can perform NQ, HQ and PQ coring of bedrock to depths of 150'

CME 55 TRACK MOUNT DRILL

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling / Exploration Drilling

The third drilling rig we run is a CME 55 track mounted machine which has a large foot print and low centre of gravity, which allows it to navigate through difficult terrain. Powering through thick forest, deep swamp, or mountain top locations, Determination Drilling will get to those off road holes you need.

This rig is equipped with the 3L8 moyno pump with discharge lines setup to a flow through swivel on its feed box. It is able to drill solid stem and hollow stem augers as well as rock core, wash bore, tri cone and DTHH drilling. A 3500 International flatbed is the rigs transport with a spacious deck for well supplies, water totes, and core rods with its two side boxes for spill kits, first aid, and personal belongings.

CME 75 TRUCK MOUNT DRILL

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling / Exploration Drilling / Geo-thermal Drilling

Second in Determination Drilling's fleet, this CME 75 truck mounted rig is equipped with side -to- side slide base feature, two speed "feed up" and has a 3L8 moyno pump mounted on the side of the truck. This machine is set for any drilling situation encountered and dominates every soil condition, or rock type that it drills. It can drill solid stem and hollow stem augers as well as rock core, wash bore, tri cone and perform DTHH with our air compressor. A 4500 International kept in great condition is the carrier vehicle and is suited for the drill representing its extreme power andweight.

CME 75 TRUCK MOUNT DRILL #2

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling / Exploration Drilling / Geo-thermal Drilling

Our second Truck mounted drill rig is much larger than the first, giving it more weight for drilling into deeper and stiffer soils. It also has a very large deck on the drill, to allow for tooling, water totes and even a portable welder.

To add to the Truck mounts great features, it has a pull master winch, along with two standard winches, a 3L8 moyno pump and flow through setup. This drill can auger with solid stems or 3 1/4" hollow stems and upwards to 6 1/4" hollow stems to 100'. By drilling with the 6 1/4" augers, it allows us to run a 6" down the hole hammer once we have augered to bedrock.

TRACK MOUNT BEAVER DRILL

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling / Heli-Portable

Our Beaver drill has received some new and exciting modifications! Now mounted to a rubber tracked carrier, we can bring this drilling equipment with greater ease and accesibilty. It is less than five feet wide and can manuever and turn on a dime. This will alow us to reach more challenging sites and perform drilling production. If needed the Beaver drill will disconnect from the carrier to allow manual support for getting into smaller areas. Having 200' of hydraulic lines we can fit the Beaver through a man door and allow drilling inside with low clearance and no exust fumes indoors.

Being so light weight, this drill can also be heli-portable with ease and be loaded into cargo planes easily for extremely distant sites.

PIONJAR & CONCRETE CORING MACHINE

Features - Geotechnical Drilling / Environmental Drilling

The pionjar is a handheld drilling tool which uses percussive energy to drive a split spoon and recover soil samples. It's small size and portability make it a good choice for geotechnical drilling in remote access sites as well as indoor applications. This is also useful for environmental drilling indoor or outdoor as we are able to install 1" PVC pipe into the pionjar hole for further water table analysis.
