The Beaver Tripod Rig is as versatile as it gets in the limited-access drilling industry. If you can stand at your desired boring site, chances are we can drill and collect the samples you want. The rig’s portable components are transported in a 4WD truck and assembled at the drill site. Powered by a 13 hp hydraulic engine the Beaver is capable of continuous solid flight auger borings up to 50 ft. deep using both SPT and Cal Modified Samplers. It is also capable of hollowstem auger drilling , and SPT sampling to depths of up to 30 ft.
The portable Beaver Tripod rig is the best choice for drilling in delicately landscaped areas, hillsides, or other hard to reach locations. It gets the job done with minimal impact on surrounding landscaping, and our crews are highly skilled at returning drill locations to their original conditions. The Beaver is extremely effective on slopes of up to 1:1. It is also used for Rotary Wash borings on docks, piers or our Floating Modular Platform.
