New DRILLMAX® DM650 Drills Deeper Wells Using Air or Mud

DRILLMAX® DM650 incorporates straightforward controls and durable components for simple operation and maintenance. Engineered to handle 24-inch wells up to 1,500 feet, outfit the DM650 to your specific geography and projects.
  • Maximize production with either rod carousel (3.5 or 4.5-inch) or single rod loader (3.5-inch).
  • Simplify setting wells using the breakout table positioned outside the drill mast which hydraulically retracts to provide a 24-inch opening, utilizes an air fork for fast and safe tripping out, and quickly switches bushing sizes.
  • Tailor for air or mud drilling, choosing up to a 1000/350 air compressor or a 6X8 piston pump and 4X3 centrifugal pump. Either pump can run independently or supercharge the duplex with the 4X3 running in front.
