Probedrill Celebrates 20 Years

Probedrill is extremely proud to be able to celebrate 20 years since its June 1995 inception.

The company was originally founded by Brian and Helen Edwards and the first rig in use was the RFW, which underwent a rebuild in 2008 and is still going strong today….

Since 1995, Probedrill has progressively increased the size of its CPT Fleet and dramatically expanded the amount of testing services available.

As you can see below, one of the most interesting and impressive transformations has been our 7 tonne tracked rig.

Version 3 (2003)
Version 4 (2013)

Probedrill now has 3 truck rigs, 4 tracked rigs, a Marshbuggy rig, container rig and portable equipment that can be set up in various different locations/scenarios. With our range of rigs, CPT cones and specialty testing equipment, we are now a nationwide industry leader in providing site investigation services to many varied sites.

Probedrill recognises and acknowledges that without the valuable support of its loyal clients, the developments we have made over the last 20 years would not have been possible.

THANK YOU for your ongoing support and we look forward to continuing on to the next 20 years!
