Tailor-Made Mobility

Based on our extensive experience in the design of land rigs and special vehicles, Highdrilling truck mounted drilling rigs are a prime example of advanced engineering.

When drilling on impassable terrain or in remote areas, our truck-mounted drilling rigs’ excellent off-road capability and mobility can make the difference between a drilling operation being commercially feasible or not.

Highdrilling self-propelled drilling rigs are built to the same high quality as our API land rigs.

Made in China and Beyond

With our extensive experience in the manufacturing of skid-mounted rigs and oilfield vehicles, we are able to design each Highdrilling mobile rig to individual customer requirements.

Your mobile drilling rig can be 100% made in China, or you can choose rig components from distinguished international suppliers as you like. By default, the following rig components are imported:

  • Main diesel engines: Caterpillar
  • Solid control system: Derrick Equipment Company

Well-Designed Chassis

A key advantage of our truck-mounted rigs is their uniquely constructed chassis. Designed for extreme stability and with a small turn cycle, they give the rigs the power and mobility required for driving on impassable terrains.

Customers can choose between different types of suspensions, including single wheel independent suspension. A mobile rig with independent suspension is especially advantageous when driving in inaccessible mountain regions.

Rig Sizes

At our production facility in China we manufacture the complete range truck-mounted and trailer mounted drilling rigs capable of drilling wells from 1000m to 4000m. Below you will find a detailed description for each of these rigs.

2000m Mobile Drilling Rig (600hp)

Water or oil wells of medium depth, located in steep mountain regions or deserts, are the prime domain for this mobile drilling rig.

Thanks to its lightweight design, our 2000m mobile drilling rigs provide superior handling and powerful acceleration on rough and bad terrain.

Main Specifications

  • Drilling depth (4-1/2″ DP): 2,000 m (6,600 ft)
  • Drilling depth (5″ DP): 1,500 m (4,920 ft)
  • Static hook load: 1,580 kN
  • Transmission mode: Mechanical
  • Drawworks: 1 × 600 hp (440 kW)
  • Mud pumps: 2 × 800 hp
  • Main engines: 1 × 630 hp (Caterpillar C18)
  • Number of axles: 6
  • Mast height: 35 m (115 ft)
  • Drill floor height: 4.5 m (15 ft)

For shallow wells below 2000m in depth, we also manufacture the following smaller rigs:

  • 1500m mobile rig: 1,350 kN hook load, 550 hp drawworks
  • 1000m mobile rig: 1,125 kN hook load, 350 hp drawworks

3000m Mobile Drilling Rig (750hp)

If you are looking for a geothermal drilling rig capable of drilling down to 3000m, this 750hp mobile rig is is all you will ever need.

Built upon a lightweight, yet extremely strong chassis to easily get you to even the most remote areas.

  • Drilling depth (4-1/2″ DP): 3,000 m (9,800 ft)
  • Drilling depth (5″ DP): 2,500 m (8,200 ft)
  • Static hook load: 1,800 kN
  • Transmission mode: Mechanical or electromechanical
  • Drawworks: 1 × 750 hp (550 kW)
  • Mud pumps: 2 × 1000 hp
  • Main engines (mechanical drive): 2 × 540 hp (Caterpillar C15)
  • Number of axles: 6
  • Mast height: 36 m (118 ft)
  • Drill floor height: 6 m (20 ft)

4000m Mobile Drilling Rig (1000hp)

This 4000m truck-mounted rig with a power of 1000 hp is the most powerful among our mobile rig and often employed in geothermal drilling operations in remote mountain regions.

The specially designed chassis is optionally available with independent suspension on every wheel, giving it superior driving characteristics on rough and extremely muddy terrain.

  • Drilling depth (4-1/2″ DP): 4,000 m (13,000 ft)
  • Drilling depth (5″ DP): 3,000 m (10,000 ft)
  • Static hook load: 2,250 kN
  • Transmission mode: Mechanical or electromechanical
  • Drawworks: 1 × 1000 hp (735 kW)
  • Mud pumps: 2 × 1,300 hp
  • Main engines (mechanical drive): 2 × 630 hp (Caterpillar C18)
  • Number of axles: 7
  • Mast height: 38 m (125 ft)
  • Drill floor height: 6 m (20 ft) or 7.5 m (25 ft)

Truck-Mounted or Trailer-Mounted

We do manufacture both truck-mounted and trailer-mounted drilling rigs. While truck-mounted rigs are more compact and easier to handle in rough terrain, the truck of a trailer-mounted rig can be used for other purposes during drilling operations.

Whatever type of mobile rig you prefer, we will make sure that our rig package meets your expectations.

Advanced Rig Components

The rig components are manufactured at our production facility in China and meet or exceed API requirements.

Highdrilling mobile drilling rigs are equipped with a mast whose special design greatly enhances stability and makes drilling in windy areas possible.

Both the mast and substructure can be raised by hydraulic cylinders, thus reducing the time needed for rig up and rig down.

The 4000 m mobile rig can optionally be equipped with a top drive system. We provide repair and maintenance services for all major top drive manufacturers like Varco, Canrig, Tesco, BPM, MH, and Bomco

Comprehensive After Sales Service

We offer a sophisticated after sales service that enables our customers to start drilling immediately.

With every drilling rig we send technical staff to the drill site to provide first hand technical support. The engineer responsible for the design of the rig is always part of the service crew.
On-site training instructions include:

  • Rig up
  • Rig down
  • Operation and maintenance of every single rig system

All Benefits in a Nutshell

For your convenience, here is a summary of the benefits of our truck-mounted drilling rigs we consider the most important:

  • Production quality standard API Q1 and ISO 9001
  • Rig components conforming to API Spec 4F, 7K, 8A, 8C
  • Rigid mast structure for enhanced stability
  • Hydraulically raised mast and substructure for fast rig up and rig down
  • Highly maneuverable with small turning cycle
  • Tailor-made chassis for perfect handling through rough terrain
  • Marine paint coating of all steel parts for operation corrosive environments.
  • Comprehensive after-sales service
