Little Beaver Offers Truck-Mounted Lone Star LS T1 Geotechnical Drill

For Soil Sampling, Standard Penetration Testing

Mounted Lone Star LS T1 Geotechnical Drill

Little Beaver makes transportation from site to site faster and easier with its Lone Star truck-mounted LS T1 geotechnical drill rig. It gives engineers and soil technicians an efficient, rugged and dependable drill for standard penetration tests (SPT) and sampling through tough soils in nearly any environment.
The heavy-duty LS T1 comes with Little Beaverís SSK1 soil sampling kit, which includes a tower, pulley, third hydraulic valve and steel cathead. The kit allows users to perform standard penetration tests with Little Beaverís optional 140-pound safety hammer, split spoon samplers and AWJ drilling rod. Solid stem augers are available in 3- to 8-inch diameters, and the unit is capable of drilling 6-inch boreholes down to 100 feet. Little Beaver also offers two sizes of hollow stem augers that can drill down to 60 feet. The LS T1ís hinged shuttle plate allows users to swing the rotary aside for quick and easy access to the borehole.
The LS T1 drills can be mounted to the bed of a small truck or flatbed with Little Beaverís specially designed frames. It also can be mounted on a rugged, lightweight, single-axle trailer that is equipped with a 2-inch hitch, three leveling jacks and a spare tire. The frames on the truck-mounted models also feature jacklegs that stabilize the drill when itís mounted to a truck with a softer suspension. The LS T1 geotechnical drill has a hydraulic lift cylinder that raises and lowers the mast and can be folded down when the unit is moved. It can be shipped fully assembled in a 20-foot container or knocked down and palletized for transportation by standard truck or ocean freight.
The drillís bypass flow control system gives users exceptional control and allows them to make precise adjustments to achieve the necessary push-down force in challenging soil conditions. The drillís 5,000-pound lifting capacity allows for easy removal of augers and extensions, and the optional anchor kit enables the unit to deliver even more force to push beyond the trailerís weight. The LS T1 is powered by a 20-horsepower Honda gas engine and features a powerful 3,000-psi hydraulic system. The hydraulic power pack operates at 10 gpm to achieve a rotary speed of 150 rpm.
The drill features an optional interchangeable head that allows operators to switch between auger drilling for soil sampling and SPT testing and mud rotary drilling for water wells. The unitís three-way ball valve allows the operator to bypass the mudflow when changing the drill pipe, which eliminates the need to shut down the mud pump. A variety of drill collars, bits and augers are available for specific drilling conditions. For water well drilling in hard rock, Little Beaver also offers down-the-hole (DTH) hammers that can be paired with 185-cfm air compressors typically found on jobsites.
Little Beaver designed the truck-mounted LS T1 for longevity and ease of use. The frame, rotary and swivel are constructed of high-strength welded steel for enhanced durability, and all crucial maintenance and greasing points are easily accessible. The drill also comes equipped with assembly tools for fast and easy setup.
Lone Star Drills are an innovative addition to the Little Beaver product family that are designed to be convenient, powerful solutions in areas with minimal resources for transportation and operation. Seven models are available for use in a variety of applications, including soil sampling, geotechnical testing and auger drilling.
