The items you said you were sending, did in fact arrive last week. I will be going back to the farm this week, to drill the first well. I did set up the rig, and ran a "test" bore to 50′, to get the feel of the machine ; and to see if there were any concerns or issues I would need to discuss with you before proceeding with complete bore. The machine performed absolutely great. There is certainly enough power to have been able to bore at a faster rate of feed, but experience in drilling previous wells, has taught me to get a consistent and straight bore, not to over feed. Listen to engines ( both rig and pump ) for steady cadence, and watch the flow and feed for a steady pace. While I realize if drilling through rock, pilot and step ream boring is required, my site had only sand stone and clay in the 50′ bore. The torque of the unit, and great design of the bit you provided, made for easy and consistent boring. I was concerned at first, that having only 5′ sections of drill stem instead of 8′ or 10′ sections, would be a nuisance in terms of speed. Turns out I find it to be just opposite. The shorter stems are so much easier to handle by one person, and therefore add or remove, that there is no time loss at all in the overall drilling. Yes, drilling is muddy. And yes, one needs to keep things lubricated and bolts retightened due to vibration and harmonics. But that is normal of any rig, and just part of the process. I expect ease of maintenance though with your rig, due to it’s robust and well engineered construction. Will give you a report when finished with first well ; 150′ . Thanks again for your excellent customer support and well built equipment. Michael Offenhauser
