Technology is everywhere, progressing by leaps and bounds each and every year. With smart phones and smart houses, voice command remote controls and even self-driving cars, it can be difficult to not get caught up in the electronics game. At SIMCO, our drilling equipment still relies on solid engineering to provide the best in operator-friendly water well drilling rigs.
The SIMCO 7000 rig boasts a proven hydraulic system that doesn’t need to rely on expensive and complicated electronics to get the job done. Its package is easy to use and easy to maintain, allowing you to get it in the field faster and stay there longer.
At first glance, the 7000 looks fairly simple. But in reality, its streamlined engineering and intuitive control system, as well as its diverse custom options are the product of decades of development. By building a more efficient machine that doesn’t require a complex operating package, SIMCO provides drilling operators an industry-leading drilling rig with more value for their investment.
“When you watch an expert golfer or figure skater at work, they make it look easy,” said Richard Clarke, Director of Sales and Marketing. “But what you don’t see is the years of hard work and dedication it took to get them there. We look at the 7000 much the same. Our rig is built on decades of engineering to make it easier for end users to manage their business.”
Water well drilling, of course, is part science, but it’s still also part art. While Geothermal drilling focuses on reaching pre-determined depths, and blast-hole drilling has even broader goals, water well drilling requires the finesse of a skilled craftsman to hit their target. Complicated rigs that depend on electronics over hands-on hydraulics lose the feedback needed for successful water well drilling. That’s how the SIMCO 7000 separates itself from the rest. With a floating head that reacts in real time to the drilling environment, the drilling operator has more control over the hydraulics and the intricate action needed on the job site.
“When you choose electric over hydraulic, you’re just flipping switches and missing out on the deep, sensory feedback needed to assess the hole you’re drilling in real time,” said Ryan Gross, SIMCO Rig Sales team member. “It’s control and accuracy. You don’t drive in bad winter weather on cruise control for the same reasons.”
Engineered for efficient operation, logically structured and customizable, the SIMCO 7000 is built for a true drilling rig operator looking for more than bells and whistles, but a smart investment.
