Buying new geotechnical equipment

Buying new geotechnical equipment

Buying new geotechnical equipment


My company (where I work to) wants to upgrade their old rusty '70 and '80 equipment with some brand new stuff. We can acces some EU funds.

We'd like to upgrade our old:

- plate bearing test equipment that works up to 300kpa. I'm looking for something that works without an excavator as counterweight, if tehnology went so far.
- some kind of soil grinder that smooths our probes until we put it in casagrande for atterberg limits. Is this ok? https://www.humboldtmfg.com/soil-grinder.html
- 5 to 10 metres manual or automatic drilling machine
- 30 to 50 metres water and earth drilling machine. One solution: http://www.rockbuster.com/

Sorry for my crappy english.
