These drills from Little Beaver originally were designed specifically to overcome the challenges of water well drilling in third-world countries.



Little Beaver’s line of Lone Star Mechanical portable well water drills are suited for use in water wells, soil sampling, geotechnical testing, exploration shot holes and auger drilling, and are said to have the power and versatility to tackle projects in a variety of soil types, including sandy, clay and loamy. Designed specifically to overcome the challenges of water well drilling in third-world countries, the Lone Star Mechanical drills are light in weight and portable, making them suitable for remote locations. They are equipped with a Honda 5.5-HP gas engine rotary and a 5.5-HP mud pump, with Hatz diesel powered units also available. When drilling depths greater than 100 feet are required, the LS200 model offers the solution. LS200 drills utilize two-inch ID M250 drill pipe to reach 200-foot depths in sand, clay and gravel soils. The entire drill fits into a 2,000-pound crate for shipping and transportation.

Lone Star Mechanical drills all are designed to provide maximum efficiency and reliability with little maintenance. A heavy-duty welded steel frame and 3,500-pound winch should allow the drills to continuously hold strong against the most demanding drilling applications. The LS200 features a traditional winch system to handle the additional weight of pipes required to dig to the extended depths, and a swivel design allows the rotary to be moved for quick access to the borehole.
