At only 4½ feet wide and 13 feet long, TesCar’s CF 2.5 lets contractors handle projects in restricted-access locations like backyards and hillsides. Because it is controlled remotely, the operator has a 360-degree range of movement around the rig to monitor dangerous operations safely. TesCar boasts maximum drilling diameter of about 2 feet to a depth of almost 50 feet. The eight-ton rig is stable, even when delivering 19,536 foot-pounds of torque. The swing mast compresses to just 7 feet to fit under low overhead clearance, and a removable power pack allows exhaust-free use in enclosed areas. It’s available from Hennessy International.
