It takes durable components to make durable rigs...
Conversely, cheap components make cheap rigs. With the demands on a drill rig, you can't afford to have a single weak link. Watson uses only the best available components from recognized manufactureres such as Timken, Parker, Crosby, Rexroth, Pullmaster, Fairfield, Linde, and more. You get what you pay for.
Mast Heights / Drill Depths
One size does not fit all...
Watson offers numerous different mast lengths and kelly configurations across the entire line. We can even push the limits beyond our standard options for extreme low headroom or depth requirements. Please inquire.
Even using the worlds best components, it is what's underneath that counts.
Watson has a 70 year history of directly manufacturing drill rigs.
We utilize only Certified welders, equipment and subcontractors.
We complete extensive quality manuals, perform hours of actual test drilling, perform torque and line pull testing on each and every machine.
A drill rig should last longer than a few seasons...
Our machines are engineered to not only endure the extreme punishment of auger drilling, but to do it for 20 years or more. Decades of experience and product improvement have led to rigs that last... The model 1000 CM
Serial Number 1 is still out there making money.
Made in America
Something that we will always be proud to claim...
