Drilling Rigs & Drilling Equipment


Combined Drillpower QLD and SJ Drilling have a total of four drilling rigs – of varying size and capabilities.

The drilling rigs have regular monthly maintenance inspections that are recorded on a schedule and kept with each machine. Currently our Hydrapower Scout and the Comacchio MC450P's float and associated support vehciles are now fitted with IVMS (In Vehicle Monitoring System) to help monitor safety and manintenance of the vehicles.

Our rigs have undergone external audits and compliance inspections and consequently have been approved to work on various mine and Petroleum and Gas sites throughout Queensland.

Below is a summary table of our fleet. Please refer to the individual rig pages for a more detailed breakdown of each rigs capabilities:

Please also note that we can source smaller 4x4 auger rigs and other specialised equipment if required for particular projects:
