I talked to the other boorman in Middelburg and he has never seen this Unimog rig - Back to sq 1 - my next option is to tow a 30 ton normal drill rig up the mountain with an excavator!!! it becomes expensive and i will be liable for damage to the truck tyres, clutch and other breakages.
Andrew after putting up game a fence on the western boundry I've cut many game out from a few natural fountains on the neighboring land - with a borehole on the mountain I will get many game into my farm before closing the farm completely - and with a bit of luck also provide my house and camp with borehole water - currently I am reliant on river water and purification system.
As you know I can not get a normal drill rig down into the kloof and neither up the mountain.
I have sourced an fabrication shop in Limpopo that builds rigs on trailers, tractors, TLB's and any normal truck drilling rigs - sure that he will sort me out!
Don't give me ideas! I am not sure what to put on the back of the Mog currentl in re-hab at my place. I was thinking, may be a fire-fighter, but if I can find a sponsor for a drill rig . . . . . But then again, I still have to complete the re-hab.
Probably not going to solve your problem, but I still have an auger drill that came of my mog that needs a new home. However I know of a guy in Kuruman with drill rigs on both 4x4 Samil 50 and 6x6 Samil 100 trucks.
