Competitor Dart

Competitor Dart

As part of the growth of the Geotron UK Geotechnical Division, we have recently taken delivery of a new Competitor Dart window sampling rig.  This rig is light, manoeuvrable and compact allowing access through a standard doorway.

The mast can be disconnected from the powerpack to enable sampling in tight access areas. This rig is fully equipped to undertake windowless sampling (up to 10m) with SPTs and a variety of undisturbed sample diameters depending on scope requirements.  It can also undertake dynamic probing (heavy or super heavy) to depths of up to 20m depending on geology.
