PileBuck Names EK160 one of the Top 6 Foundation Drilling Rigs on the Market

  June 8, 2018 Drilling holes in the ground. That’s the name of the game. Knowledge of the various drilling methods–anchored earth retention, pile construction, drilled shaft foundations–etc. is paramount. Also, it is recommended that you have a sober operator behind your half million dollar piece of machinery. But none of this matters without the proper equipment. There’s plenty of job site issues that seem unavoidable–delays, change-orders, budget overruns, etc.–But we like to think you do have control over the choice of equipment you and your team made months, if not years, before you were even on this job. What makes a great drilling rig? The size? Engine power? Torque? The ability to operate and maneuver in difficult conditions? Pile Buck believes a solid drilling rig encompasses all of these qualities (and more), but we’ve used these parameters to narrow down our favorite rigs on the market today. Here are Pile Buck’s choices for the top foundation drilling rigs on the market today, in no particular order…
