  2. Drilling Rig Remount Services – Fast, Efficient & Customized

    August 13, 2014 by Savannah Adkins
    Your heavy duty drilling equipment can only go as far as its mount will take it which is why Rig Source offers drilling rig remount services to broaden your range.

    Remounting drilling equipment is quite typical in the drilling industry, and drillers will often times remount the same drill rig numerous times throughout the course of its life. They do this to ensure accessibility and dependability of their rigs. No driller wants downtime, and by having their drill mounted to the most versatile vehicle will get them where they need to go will help eliminate downtime.

    Why Go Through The Hassle Of A Drilling Rig Remount?

    Wayne Nash, a contributing author for the National Driller wrote a piece on drill rig remounts called, “Considerations When Remounting a Drilling Rig.” In his article, Wayne came to the conclusion that drilling rigs need remounts throughout their lifetime for two main reasons.

    • Drill rig technology doesn’t change rapidly which means drill rigs usually outlast the trucks they’re mounted on.
    • Road or field conditions make use of trucks completely obsolete so alternative mounts such as tracks become a necessity.

    Both his points solidify the need for reoccurring remounts, but finding experienced individuals to complete the task successfully or sometimes just the time to get it done can be difficult.

    Rig Source Gets It Done

    Rig Source specializes in remounting and servicing drill rigs. In fact, providing drillers with custom drilling rig remounts has played a huge role in the company’s success.
