RockBuster® Water Well Drilling Rigs

Clean drinking water is hard to come by in a lot of places around the world.

At RockBuster® we manufacture and sell water well drilling rigs.  Our drilling machines are very portable and easy to operate, but yet robust to handle everyday drilling.  We build our rigs to utilize the mud rotary technique with the on board mud pump. Or using DTH Hammer for those hard rock layers by plugging an external compressor into the unit.

Customers who have bought our drilling rigs, like our R100 have shipped them to many places around the world.  Our rigs are loved by contractors and non-profits for their portability and durability.

We are a proud member of the National Groundwater Association.

RockBuster® Water Well Drilling Machines

RockBuster® Water Well Drilling machines are fabricated right here in Jewett, Texas-USA.  The steel used on the frames and drill mast is sourced here in the USA.  Most of it from the steel mill located in our own little town of Jewett, Texas.   Standard engines are industrial Kubota diesel engines.   Hydraulics are high quality Danfoss pumps and motors.   All units have on board hydraulic powered Mud Pumps (on its own circuit).  The swivels are of high quality and can be repacked with seals and bearings when needed, and can handle water or air (up to 700psi).  These portable drilling machines have come a long way since we started manufacturing these RockBuster® rigs.  We also continue to look for new technology to implement into these units.  While relying a lot on feedback from past clients as well as industry experts.
