SONIC Drill Rigs

SONIC DB320-1

Our DB320–1 is a compact, lightweight drill rig especially designed for sonic drilling through unconsolidated material. It has been optimised to extract more comprehensive core samples in sand, clay or gravel than is usually possible with traditional soil sampling techniques.

SONIC ATV-1

Our ATV Sonic Drill rig (mounted on a Rubber Tracked IHI carrier) is supported by a twin IHI carrier (tooling and supply storage). It allows access for a full-sized Roto-Sonic Drill to challenging locations. Whether the site is hilly terrain, or soft muskeg, this versatile Sonic Drill can provide the comprehensive soil characterization that only a continuous Sonic soil core supplies.
