Cable tool drilling rigs


Speedstar 71 6500.00 1000ft rated. ( Email for more info)

one Speedstar 71 cable tool drilling rig. The speedstar 71 is a 1000ft rated drilling rig. Where can you get a drilling rig rated for 1000ft that will drill hard rock for this price. Do your homework, speedstar 71 is first class set up.

*The Good:

Its speedstar 71, is same class is Bucyrus 22w, but better. Includes lots of tooling and bits, and wrenches. Comes with 6" bit and 6" inch bailer. also includes other bit sizes. The harder the formation the better the cable tool works.

Cable tool rig will let you know when you hit water, unlike rotary mud rigs. When bailer comes up with water in it, you know you hit water.

Cable tool rigs do not need ! 250.00 polymer, no gas guzzling water truck needed, no air compressor needed, no need to set costly casing until you see you hit water. No 200.00 per joint drill pipe needed. This rig would be great for farmer, rancher or anyone needing a water well, and does not want to spend 20,000 for dry hole from drilling contractor.

Cable tool also can let you set casing as you drill if you want. and cable tool rig also is capably of being used as a pulling unit to service new or old water wells and setting pumps or cleaning out old water wells.

Speedstar 71 is sold as is, and will need TLC. Before you can drill with this Rig.. You will need, new paint job, some new cable, new battery and gas tank cleaned. gears and bearings seem to be in good shape, and mast is good too. No new rig, but not 40k either. Where else can you get a 1000ft rated hard rock rig for this price.

*The BAD:

Rig is good, Truck is not very good, you can mount rig on trailer or on another truck. Even though rig is complete and includes bits and tooling, it will need some work, like cables replaced, International 4 cy engine will need tune up and fuel tank cleaned, and some belts may need replaced. A speedstar 71 in great condition that needs no work sells for 50k and up. You are basically buying rig and truck is free. If you have basic mechanic skills this would work for you.
