K60 Drilling Rig

The K60 Drilling Rig is a compact drilling unit ideally suited for water well, Solar, geothermal and geotechnical drilling applications.


The modular design allows for many customisable options from drill head to clamps to added accessories like mud pumps and remote controls. With setups for mud or air drilling (optional 5×7 Mud Pump replaces Rod Rack) the K60 is compatible with all drilling methods currently available.

A top mounted winch assembly, in-line lubricator, water pump for dust suppression and air swivel are included as standard.

Drilling applications

  • Geothermal
  • Geotechnical
  • Water Well
  • Solar Panel Installation

Limited Access

There are many features on the K60 that make it a restricted access rig which include horizontal mast position, width adjustable undercarriage (863-1524mm) and retractable hydraulic stabilisers, these features allow this rig to get just about anywhere.

With engine and hydraulic systems all onboard the rig there is no external power unit required. This makes the rig ideal on uneven ground including  drilling for solar farm installations.

Movement & Stability

The K60 is equipped with the dual ram tilt system which enables the mast to angle 30˚ side to side allowing the rig to perform angled drill holes and compensate for gradients in ground surface.

Also included are x4, 3 position hydraulic stabiliser legs for added stability and safety and the head slide option which allows the operator to side shift the drill head by 600mm clearing a path for the winch cable.

The Swing out ‘Z’ frame control arm is a standard feature of the K60 which allows the operator to have full view of the drill mast and drill position at a safe distance.


From the K60’s single control panel you can control every aspect of the rig in the best position for the operator.

Two features on this panel allow the operator to set the down feed and hold back rates when drilling with rods, which becomes very useful when drilling past 100 meters.

On-board Tooling Storage

On-board Tooling Storage

The K60 is equipped with a large on-board rod rack as standard on one side of the rig and is capable of holding 100 meters of 3 meter drill rod storage. An alternative option is to replace the rod rack with a 5×7 mud pump.
