The 42-year-old, family-owned American Drilling Services in Florida, relied on homemade drill rigs to complete primarily 2- to 4-inch residential water wells. With demand increasing, they began looking for newer technology in order to complete more mud pump well drilling.

“Technology is always changing. We used to drill galvanized steel with cable drilling. Now we’re exclusively rotary drilling,” said William Diaz, driller, who has been with the company for seven years. “The technology gets better, and things get easier.”

They found technology — and speed — they sought for mud pump well drilling in the DM250.

 “We used to do one well per day, occasionally two. The DM250 has helped us keep up with the workload by being able to drill quicker,” Diaz said. “The pulldown power of the top head is significantly stronger than our previous rigs. With the mud pump, we can clean out the hole a lot faster, which means less waiting around.”

With their older rigs constantly breaking down and not having the luxury of taking time off, finding a service center near them eased concerns should they encounter trouble and need a mechanic. 

“We’re not breaking down all the time, which is a huge advantage compared to our older rigs,” Diaz said. “Overall it’s a great rig. I recommend the DM250 to anyone doing 2- to 4-inch wells. It makes me happier because I’ve now got air conditioning, and I love the self-feed carousel. It’s a fast, great rig.”
