Product description

Boyles C8C is the most powerful rig in the Boyles range and yet easy to operate. This rig has a new feed system that further improves the high productivity that has become a key characteristic of the Boyles rigs. Boyles C8C has a depth capacity of 1 830 m. The newly designed level-wind wireline winch rolls the wire evenly across the full width of the drum. The work environment around the rig has been carefully considered during development. All major components are located to allow easy access during maintenance. In order to control carbon emissions, the rig features a modern Tier III engine. The Boyles C8C rig is ideal for deep borehole depths, and despite its power, it is compact in design and easy to operate in the field. Designed for sturdiness and operation in harsh environments, the Boyles C8C rig just goes on and on without interruption, thus minimizing service requirements. Boyles C8C is designed with safety in mind, minimizing the risk of personal injury during operation.
