Gus Pech 400RS

Over the years, sonic drilling has been given many different names.  Rotasonic, sonicore, and vibratory drilling are all different terms used to describe essentially the same system.  They all use a high frequency vibratory system applied to a drill string to cut through the subsurface.  The rotational component of the drilling method is in reference to the slow rotation of the drill string to evenly distribute the vibrational energy at the surface of the drill bit.

The Gus Pech 400RS is a powerful truck-mounted sonic drill rig.  Outfitted with an industry leading Diedrich drill head, the 400RS runs a 24-foot stroke for faster rod trips and longer core runs.  With 35,000 lbs. of pullback, this rig can handle continuous coring from 4 to 8 inches in diameter and is equipped with a 1000 psi / 35 gpm mud pump.  A wireless, remote control operated crane mounted on the rig tender efficiently handles drill pipe and core barrels for maximum safety for operators.
