Boart Longyear is planning an impressive presence at the show bringing its highly productive LS™250 sonic drill rig to be displayed in booth number 763. The company was the first U.S. firm to utilize sonic equipment for environmental drilling with this technology now being used in a wide variety of soft ground and shallow drilling applications. Sonic drilling is shown to be faster, with less than one percent drill deviation, and is more accurate than conventional overburden drilling.

I highly recommend the new Longyear bits – they have improved penetration rates, productivity and outlast any other bit I’ve used.
