The power company is upgrading poles through part of our little ranch. I thought this drill looked cool. It's drilling 15' to set a 120', 19k lb. concrete power pole.
Notice the little deere 322? I was jealous with it's traction. It's muddy as hell here!

Gotta be heavier than a 200... I'm guessing custom house with at least 300 carraige.

I would say that has a 30 ton excavator undercarriage. Wish power pole holes were that easy around here. B.C. Hydro has to use dynamite to dig pole holes :laugh: takes a long time

Those concrete poles are very $$$$$ expensive a 120 footer has to be a easy 30 grand the wood poles that length are 10-15 grand.

i'm going to try and get more pics but when I get home it's getting dark and it takes a while to get down back with the wet ground.

I have no idea what make that drill is but I saw the number 200 on the side just like it is lettered on a pc200 but who knows. it's a tall rig.

I think the auger is 6' -7' diameter...might be a little bigger. They had another drill head sitting on a flatbed truck and it was almost as wide as the flatbed.

Not a Komatsu at all. It's actually powered by a cummins. SoilMEC builds their own equipment.

SoilMec has a website....

interesting. I'll get some more pics if I can catch them before they go to the next property. We are in the middle and they have to use our place as a staging area...Hopefully we can get some other pics.
