The BG 50 is our most powerful rotary drilling machine with an operating weight of about 300 tons. It is predominantly used to install the largest diameter cased or uncased boreholes, drill to depth of 260ft and deal with the toughest rock strength. We also use this machine to install CFA piles with 4ft diameter to depth beyond 115ft and mix soil with single column diameter in excess of 9ft. The machines shear weight and power enable us to tackle the most difficult ground conditions where no other machine in the world can provide equal performance.

The biggest earth foundation machine is German made, it’s a Bauer. Bauer built the BG 50 and with it the largest of all rotary drilling rigs used for earth foundation drilling.
