As part of offering their clients a complete integrated service Galt Geotechnics recently purchased a 3 m single pass 1750 Scout auger drill mounted on Nissan Patrol. Galt Geotechnics chose the 1750 as an easy to operate and manoeuvrable alternative to larger machines. The little drill allows Galt to add real value to the professional services they offer their clients. Galt’s specific brief to us was to be able to undertake simple auger drilling to 3 m depth in one process without needing to change rods, which we achieved with minor modifications to the standard design.
Galt’s technician can be seen here undertaking soil profiling for a foundation and pavement assessment for a proposed new commercial development in Northam, Western Australia. Galt has been pleased with the performance of the rig and the design brief was met.
