    December 22, 2011 by Rig Source Inc.

    Morooka TCX 850 Crawler Carrier from Rig SourceLogan Drilling Group in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia just purchased another Morooka rubber tracked carrier to mount one of their CME 75’s to. Logan previously purchased a new Morooka TCX 850 from Rig Source for the mounting of a CME 55, and this time opted for the larger Morooka MST 1500VD to put a CME 75 on. Logan, like many geotechnical drilling firms across North America, is seeing the benefits of changing their units over to track mounted units, such as the Morooka carriers.  The rubber tracked units allow you to get to treacherous places that truck mounted or rubber tired units can not reach and unlike steel tracked units, they still work great on blacktop and roadways with out any damage. Call Rig Source today at 630-365-1649 or email info@rigsourceinc.com to find which Morooka or IHI rubber tracked carrier is the best fit for your drill. We can either do the mounting in house or get the carrier prepped for you and sent it out so you can mount the units yourself.
