Drilling, Piling & Underboring hire near you

Mostly used in mining applications, utility installation and directional drilling, which is a specialised and effective method for horizontal directional drilling. Directional drilling has many benefits, such as increasing the length of an exposed section of a reservoir, gaining access to areas where vertical drilling is not possible, or even allowing multiple wellheads to be grouped together for maximum access. In some earthwork projects, directional drilling rigs are useful in producing relief wells to avoid the main well reaching above capacity or blowing out.

iseekplant has directional drilling hire available across Australia in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, Darwin and anywhere else you need. You can also access heavy-duty piling equipment if you need to lay deep foundations for your current project, whether you need to hire truck-mounted piling equipment, excavator-mounted piling equipment, or an entire dedicated piling rig.

Underboring rigs are another specialty machine offered for hire through iseekplant, used mostly for laying underground pipes and cables, as well as digging conduits. Underboring rigs have the advantage of minimising disturbance to the surface area, and therefore are ideal for drilling under roads, river crossings or established landscaping. With impressive laying capacities, these machines can carry as much as 300 metres of drilling rod and install 2 kilometres depending on the diameter. Although underboring is possible under a large variety of soil conditions, there are certain restrictions of the materials these machines can handle. For example, cobblestones or incomplete layers of rock are not workable.

Feel free to use iseekplant's industry trained experts for advice on water bore drilling, environmental drilling, anchor drilling, drill stem testing, earth stake drilling and drill rig hire for your next project in your local area. Be sure to contact our team by calling 1300 691 912 or emailing projects@iseekplant.com.au. Otherwise, use our get a quote tool for quick and competitive quotes.
