Building the rig

SITE INVESTIGATION

Van Elle fitter Graham Beardmore says: 'You work on its lifting capacity first, which is 2t. That tells you what hydraulic pump you need, then you know the required hydraulic tank and from that you can see what engine you want. It also features two emergency stops to cut the hydraulics.

We made it so that everything you need for the borehole can fit on top when it's all folded up and the tracks can extend for stability when it's being operated.

It's all about stability.'
