RSI is a nationwide rental center for Geoprobe® Units.

Rig Source Inc. (RSI) is proud to be a nationwide rental center for Geoprobe® units. We are also the Midwest distributor for Geoprobe® tooling, and a certified Geoprobe® service center. If you are looking for Geoprobe® units, do not look any further than our rental fleet consisting of the new 7822DT unit as well as models 6620DT, 66DT, 54DT, 540MT and 420M. Rent one of our direct push machines today. Our wide array of rental and purchase equipment will meet all of your direct push needs.

Direct push technology refers to a method of performing subsurface investigations by driving, pushing, or vibrating small-diameter steel rods into the ground to collect soil samples, soil gas samples and groundwater samples using hydraulically powered machines.

Geoprobe® is the leading manufacturer of direct push machines and tooling and RSI offers several of these machines for rent on a short or long term basis.

In addition, to the direct push units, RSI also rents support equipment such as the DP800 injection machine. RSI is also a source for the purchase of the smaller Geoprobe® machines (420M and 540MT), the injection machines (GS1000, GS2000 and DP800) and all Geoprobe® tooling and accessories.
