The Lone Star LS T1 Geotechnical Drill from Little Beaver is engineered for standard penetration tests and sampling.
The drill is mounted to a single axle-trailer that can be towed by an ATV or small truck for maneuverability from site to site. It comes with Little Beaver’s SSK1 kit, which includes a tower, pulley, third hydraulic valve, and a steel cathead. The kit allows users to perform standard penetration tests with the company’s optional 140-pound safety hammer, split spoon samplers, and AWJ drilling rod. Solid-stem augers are available in 3- to 8-inch diameters, and the unit is capable of drilling 6-inch boreholes down to 100 feet.
Little Beaver also offers two sizes of hollow stem augers that can drill down to 60 feet.
