Jesse’s Drill Rig Start-up with CDG
To best explain what a Rig Source drill rig start-up entails, we followed Jesse Whittaker, our East Coast Sales Representative on his most recent in-depth drill rig preparation with CDG Engineers & Associates Inc. CDG is a highly reputable consulting firm with a specialty in geotechnical engineering. The company has spent years completing in-house soil and groundwater investigations, and after purchasing the Diedrich D-50 turbo drill from Rig Source, thought it would be beneficial to acquire knowledge of the additional core drilling methods the D-50 is capable of because they will allow CDG to expand their services.
Jesse, having over ten years of production core drilling was able to complete CDG’s start-up of their Diedrich D-50 which included a full rig once over and presentation of the drill’s capabilities. Jesse also walked them through the core drilling process, and helped them make sense of the core drilling style, all of which can be seen by browsing the photos. Furthermore, Jesse joined the CDG team on one of their jobsites to provide demos while the drill rig was actually in use. The visibility of viewing drill rigs in action is a powerful tool because it provides a real world visual of the process and a chance to test out features gained from new equipment.
