Features and Performance
The LDT 360 is an affordable water well drilling rig that combines the proven drilling technology of cable tool drilling with today’s reliable hydraulic drive technology to produce a rig specifically designed for drilling in all types of geology. This rig can drill through both rock and unconsolidated formations to a depth up to a maximum of 450 feet or 137 meters. A typical well of 50 meters (approximately 160 feet) requires only about 100 liters or 28 gallons of gasoline and can be completed in a week. Operation of the rig requires little training and can be set up and operated by one person.
The rig was designed compact enough to be towed by a pickup truck. It also was designed for easy shipping to overseas. With some assembly required, two rigs will fit into a 20 foot shipping container. Most components are readily available from third party venders around the world for easy service and maintenance. Plus this unit is self-contained with everything needed to drill a well including a locking tool and storage box to store tools. With cable tool drilling there is no need for a mud pump or air compressor therefore reducing the cost of fuel, material and chance of breakdowns.
