DUAL ROTARY DRILLS

Foremost’s Dual Rotary (DR) drills have been working successfully around the world since 1979. Over the years, the DR method has earned an enviable reputation for exceptional drilling performance in unconsolidated overburden, particularly within water well drilling and waterwell & construction industries.  DR operators regularly drill and case through hundreds of feet of tough overburden where casing hammers and under-reamers have been unsuccessful. The Foremost DR also delivers excellent productivity for a variety of open-hole applications; making it one versatile, powerful and truly unique machine.
