Our portable Hollow Stem
Auger unit enables our crews to install 2" wells to monitor
groundwater in areas that prohibit the use of conventional
truck-mounted drilling rigs. Our crews can easily wheel this
modular drilling frame (80" high) around a project site. The auger unit can also operate inside buildings and can install monitor
wells to depths of 10 - 15 meters.
The augers are 8" in diameter with an inner diameter of 3.75"
and are powered by a gasoline hydraulic motor with 100' of
extension lines. The lead auger has hardfaced cutting blades
and holds a plug in place to insure a continuous open hole.
The individual augers are 4' in length and are less than half
the weight of other hollow stem augers.
