Equipment | HAV-180 Becker Hammer

Becker Hammer drills combine the driven energy of a diesel pile driver and reverse circulation air lift with dual wall casing. This system is well suited for most ground types, but will outperform all equipment while drilling coarse granular formations.

The HAV-180 has a quick attachment for a top drive rotary head that allows mud rotary and coring operations to be performed below the hammer casing. This drill is equipped with Bounce Chamber pressure readouts and pull back test equipment. We carry a large inventory of Becker tooling to accommodate all of your project needs.
