Aqua Bore G3-Pro Series

The Aqua Bore G3 Pro Series is a compact, powerful and full featured water well and geo-sampling drill rig capable of drilling over 450 ft. through all types of formations. The base model XD (37HP head engine) dual gas provides more HP to the head drive providing up to 800 lb. ft. of torque at 150 RPM and push pull force to 8,000 pounds standard, 10,000 option. The mud pumps also have more power with the XD sporting a 27 HP engine providing 240 GPM at up to 120 PSI for deeper and larger boreholes.

We now offer the new UD 74 HP tier 4 diesel deck engine unit with 1,000 lb. ft. of head torque at up to 150 RPM and a push pull of 12,000 lb. This UD diesel unit with its dual hydraulic pump has a second pump to provide 30 HP to a 3x2 mud pump for up to 340 GPM flows at 100 PSI and 370 GPM flows at up to 145 PSI with an optional charge pump for larger and deeper boreholes. This rig can power beyond 500 ft. for those who need it.

Check out all the standard features the Aqua Bore has and that most drillers expect. We also offer many custom options to finish out a rig that fits your specific drilling needs.

All Aqua Bore rigs now have reversible chrome moly ware sleeves on the swivel head allowing for maintenance without replacing the main swivel core. This allows reversing the sleeves to double the ware life of the swivel function without replacement and when needed only replace these sleeves reducing rebuild cost many times over. These sleeves are also able to be made in most local machine shops in short order.

With so many high end features the Aqua Bore allows for successful well drilling in even the most difficult of conditions. The unit may be purchased raw on skid frame or with a single or tandem axle transport kit.

The XD unit shown in the video is built for the most demanding of conditions and comes with a tandem axle transport kit 160′ of 10′ drill pipe, and 1200 pound auxiliary cable hoist at $38,500.

Accessories shown such as drop down mud pit, power pack and borehole thimble kit are separate.

The new diesel powered unit uses an industrial 84HP Kubota diesel power unit and hydraulic drive on all systems from this one power plant.

IMPORTANT OPERATIONAL INFORMATION
    • All Aqua Bore heads and hoists have adjustable speed settings allowing head speeds on most rigs to be adjusted from 0 to 150 RPM to match bit and formation needs.
    • Hoist speeds can be adjusted from very slow for critical lifts to high speed (7 seconds for full stroke on most rigs) for fast trip out work. Trip out speeds are critical for efficient professional drilling.
    • ​The masts all have auto locks using a hydraulic locking valve on the mast raising ram thus speeding set up and take down while providing strong locking action.
    • Aqua Bore heads swing off to one side and locks allowing unrestricted open access to the borehole for finishing work. While in place the main head can be used as a powerful independent hoist.
    • The optional auxiliary hoist incorporates a pivot jib that allows easy lifts of casing, pump lines and use for drill pipe handling directly from the pipe trays.​
    • The optional carry on drop down mud pan provides extremely fast set ups and clean ups while giving excellent cuttings separation and coupled with the borehole thimble keeps mud loss to a very minimum. No need for ineffective mud pits!
    • The Aqua Bore drill pipe gate is the fastest and easiest to use in small rigs with no small parts to lose. With its removable open faced design borehole work is a snap. Operators find it nearly automatic the way it functions and holds drill pipe aligned.
    • The Aqua Bore control panel offers the most direct control over most drilling operations of any small rig. It sports three pressure gages, main hydraulic, down pressure hydraulic and mud pressure. It has all the motor, speed and ram controls along with engine start, run and tachometers. Even the mud flow and priming functions are easily controlled from the panel. No need to leave the operators station to control rig functions making it efficient, fast and safe.
    • Unlike many small rigs, the AquaBore uses a clutch system on the gas driven mud pumps allowing for less ware on starting systems and much better pump control. Even this clutch is controlled from the main panel by the operator.
    • The Aqua Bore units are set up to easily be drained down for freezing storage temperatures. Most units take less than 2 minutes.
    • With 18 gallon fuel tanks, both dual gas and diesel units operate all day on one fueling.

Drill bits vary as do drilling formations. We recommend using the types of bits most suited for your formations. We will recommend bit suppliers for the various types of bits needed, or you may order the bits you require with a unit.

Due to EPA standards the 84 HP Kubota diesel will be phased out in 2018. A 74 HP diesel that will not require special exhaust treatment will replace it and with adjusted hydraulics will allow for the same rig performance. An 87 HP Kubota industrial gas deck engine built on the same block as the diesel with great longevity will be available at that time and a slight increase in hydraulic flow and performance will be built into the UD unit.

Delivery is available on a per-mile basis or truck freight can be arranged, call for a quote.

Recently state sales tax laws have changed across the country. It is now required my many states that Webber Construction and Fabrication LLC collect Michigan sales tax at 6% or report sales of taxable items to the receiving state.

However, if you as a buyer have tax exempt or tax reduced status such as Farm/Ranch use, Industrial processing, Resale license, Non-profit status, Church use or other such things a certificate of exception may be filled out and no tax collected. Such certificate is kept on record with use and is not forwarded to others. Please inform our sales person at time of purchase what you status is so that we may be right with the Government.
