Vertek CPT wants to ensure that you have the right equipment to grow your business. As you are going through the CPT rig purchase process.
We’ll have extensive conversations to ensure that we are both on the same page when it comes to where you will be testing, what types of tests you can most easily sell, and which rig or rigs will help you to make the most money.
CPT Track Rig Features
As you look around our site, you’ll see that some rigs are built on tracks, as opposed to truck beds with wheels. As per with construction equipment, you might expect the tracked equipment to be larger, with CPT rigs the tracked units tend to be smaller.
This is because tracked rig CPT platforms are designed to not only traverse and work in difficult terrains but also to be highly maneuverable around obstacles such as trees, rocks and gulleys.
Remember, CPT testing may be specified by your customer for pre-construction activities, meaning that it takes place on a site with little preparation. Having a highly maneuverable platform with low ground pressure can make the difference between you being able to win certain jobs and not.
Track rigs are usually designed in order to distribute the weight of the rig over more square inches of contact area. This helps to minimize damage to sensitive areas as well as help the rig not get stuck in less than optimum ground conditions.
The overall rig footprints are designed so that the units can be effectively trucked to sites within your service area.
Track rigs are designed for deep pushes in tough geologies and the Vertek CPT tracked rigs push from about 10 tons up to 25 tons.
With the right combination of weight, ease of maneuverability, and set-up features, a tracked rig can provide you with more time doing actual soundings (generating billable work) and less time setting up and tearing down as you move across the terrain.
