Effective January 1, 2019, SIMCO Drilling Equipment, Inc. will no longer produce equipment powered by diesel engines that meet the older Tier 3 or Tier 4 Interim EPA Off-Road emission regulations for sale in USA, Canada & EU. We are able to manufacture drill rigs powered by these older tier engines through 2018 by utilizing the EPA’s Transition Program for Equipment Manufacturers (TPEM) as long as the supply lasts on them.
Current estimates are a 40%-60% increase when going to the new Tier 4 final engine. If you plan on purchasing an affected drill rig model in 2018, we recommend getting your purchase order in to us as soon as possible. SIMCO Drilling Equipment’s limited number of 2018 Flex/Interim engines will be assigned to orders on a first come-first serve basis. Once depleted, the new Tier 4 final engines will be used.
Models affected by this announcement: SIMCO 2400 models and 2800 deck engine models
