Three indicators a trailer-mounted drill is right for your soil sampling project
Trailer-mounted drills are a popular option for soil sampling in rural areas or accessing locations that are difficult to reach. If you’ve been on the fence about whether a trailer-mounted soil sampling drill offers the right solution, keep reading.
1. You need to get through tight spaces
If your project involves maneuvering through tight spaces, using large track-mounted or truck-mounted soil sampling drills present some challenges. Large trucks won’t fit in small spaces or make sharp turns for tight angles. A trailer-mounted soil sampling drill offers the ideal solution for situations where you need to be able to nimbly maneuver into the drilling zone. The Lone Star Drills trailer-mounted line offers soil sampling drills on a single-axle trailer rated for 3,500-5,000 pounds, depending on the drill model. Each trailer-mounted soil sampling drill has three leveling jacks to allow for fast setup and stable drilling. Plus, the collapsible design makes trailer-mounted
soil sampling drills compact enough to easily access just about any location.
2. You’ve got places to be
Ease of transportation is crucial when you need to jump from one job to the next. Whether you’re fighting against daylight or on a tight timeline, having versatile transportation options instead of a dedicated vehicle boosts productivity and gives the driver more independence to get supplies or complete other tasks without the trailer. With a standard two-inch ball coupler, a trailer-mounted soil sampling drill easily connects or disconnects from an ATV or a truck, allowing quick movement from one location to the next.
