Soilmec SR-50

 
 
 

We have a brand new 2012 Soilmec SR-50 which now joins our fleet. The SR-50 is much like the SR-80, only smaller. It has a modern computer system that shows and records all drilling parameters. And it is fully sound-proofed, making it ideal for working in urban areas.

The SR-50 has been specially designed for suiting the following applications:

  • Cased bored piles with casing driven directly by rotary head and by casing oscillator powered by the base carrier itself
  • Deep uncased bored piles stabilized by drilling fluid or dry hole
  • CFA (Continuous Flight Auger) piles by means of long auger string
  • BFS (Bottom Feed System) for dry bottom feed stone column installation
  • DP (Displacement Piles) on demand

The SR-50 is equipped with the DRILLING MATE SYSTEM (DMS) on 12' touch screen for monitoring of the drilling parameters.
CAT monitoring system of the engine power and hydraulic system.

Henry Drilling - Soilmec SR-50

The Soilmec SR-50 is an efficient drilling machine that brings high torque and great maneuverability to the table for all drilled shaft jobs. With a removable lower mast section this machine is great for doing over-sized shafts in the 4' to 8' diameter range without having to mobilize a large drill to site. The SR-50 also has a low headroom kit so we can complete drilled shafts despite overhead obstructions. With drill depths to 150', the SR-50 brings big performance in a mid-sized package.
