The M 10 is the workhorse of the fleet. It is versatile, delivers exceptionally high torque, and can be used in a wide variety of drilling applications. It is the gold standard in geotechnical drilling. The M 10 is not only outstanding for its drilling capabilities, but it has a large number of feature innovations and enhancements that bring drill safety to a new level.
This tough workhorse sets the standard for auger drilling. Powerful drilling capability combined with tracks ensures you get excellent samples even in challenging access and drilling situations.
The Chieftain is a one-of-a-kind drill with unmatched deep drilling capabilities. It is designed to minimize damage to environmentally sensitive terrain, including tundra and muskeg. Its four-track design gives it the ability to get to difficult locations beyond the reach of any other tracked vehicle.
The M 11 "Combo Drill" is a unique drill that can perform both auger and rotary work, saving time and the expense of bringing in a second drill. Combined rotary / coring holes are also its specialty, and the switchover between methods is quick and easy.
Mobile Augers is pleased to offer clients the benefits of sonic drilling with our resonant frequency drill heads, as well as traditional sonic heads, mounted on rubber tracks.
Depending on soil conditions, these drills can provide continuous, undisturbed core samples up to 60 m.
Excellent for sampling in challenging formations, such as loose, unconsolidated soils.
The rubber tracks allow us to access locations with difficult ground conditions. Our smallest sonic drill is compact enough for limited access locations, such as back yards.
Choose from the Fraste XL with the 100 kw drill head, or the larger Fraste FS 250 with a 250 kw drill head.
A truck-mounted version of our extremely popular M 5T. This drill is renowned for its ability to out-drill much larger drills, due to its engineering and high torque. One of the busiest drills in our fleet due to its compact size, low overhead clearance, and ability to get the job done efficiently and quickly.
The M 5 Unimog is a versatile drill mounted on a high-clearance all-terrain vehicle. Highly articulated suspension and low center of gravity provides good contact and traction in extreme conditions. The M 5 Unimog is highway legal which eliminates the costs of Lo-Boy tractor-trailer transportation.
The M 5T is one of the most versatile drills anywhere, making it very popular with our clients. With more torque than drills several times its size, it routinely out-drills larger truck-mounted drills. Low ground pressure enables access in wet or soft terrain, and the rubber tracks minimize surface damage inside and out.
