The SIMCO 5000 Water Well Drill Rig /  Geothermal Drill Rig

The SIMCO 5000 was originally developed in 1976 and was widely known in the industry. The original SIMCO 5000 was a reasonably cost drill, ruggedly built, that ran 20′ drill pipe. The SIMCO 5000 was produced for nearly thirty years and hundreds were produced in that time frame. The New 5000 was reengineered with those very same concepts in mind.

We used things from both the SIMCO 2800 and the SIMCO 7000 in our design. The 5000 is a lightweight drill rig on a single axle Ford F-600 truck chassis. The drill has a drill rod carousel that holds 200′ of 3″ Drill pipe. The rig also has the same torque as our SIMCO 7000 which is 30% more than other rigs this size. The truck is all under weight on both axles and the total GVWR. The New 5000 has many updates on it including an electronic screen to monitor gauges and other functions. This greatly reduced the rigs weight.
