Download Specification Sheet (.pdf)

At the base of every TSi 150AC8 Sonic Drill Rig is a remarkably durable Massenza MM8 platform engineered specifically to accommodate the TSi 150 Sonic Drill Head. An articulating mast allows drilling at a variety of angles, making it ideal for micropiles, anchors, geotechnical investigations and geothermal boreholes. The versatility of the articulating mast allows drilling at angles between vertical and 130 degrees in any directions. The proprietary TSi 150 Sonic Oscillator provides the world’s most productive use of Sonic power.

Key Applications

  • Geo-Construction
  • Dam and Levee investigations and rehabilitation
  • Earth Retention and Ground Improvement (e.g., micropiles, anchors)
  • Geotechnical studies
  • Mine Tailings Investigations

TSi 150AC8 Advantages

Ample Power A 278 HP Tier 3 diesel engine powers all driving, drilling and accessory hydraulic functions 

True Sonic Power The exclusive TSi 150 Series Sonic Oscillator utilizes up to 150 HP to generate powerful resonant sonic energy in the drill string to a drilling depth of up to 800 ft. 

Safer by Design An extra-large work platform and fold-down walkways optimize crew operating efficiency and safety 

More Drilling Flexibility The 32-ft. mast with 24.5 ft. of head travel allows drilling angles anywhere between vertical and 45° 

Efficient Design The drive system operates the feed frame with half the chain length and rollers of conventional drive methods 

Extreme Capability The crawler-mounted design has full rotational drilling capability 

Maximum Accessibility Rugged tracks allow the TSi 150C to easily each drilling sites in virtually any type of terrain 

Greater Drilling Efficiency Down force of 15,000 lbs. and pull back force of 22,000 lbs. maximizes drilling speed and efficiency

FMC Bean Pump A piston pump plumbed into the drilling system and water tank enables flushing of drill cuttings from borehole
