From Professionals for Professionals
Through our large client pool, we can offer a wide range of pre-owned, rebuilt top drives ready for shipment. All of our top drives have been recertified to ensure they are working properly.
Recertification includes the drive unit, track, vfd, panel, and a new loop kit. These top drives come with a complete dyno, FAT, and databook. All in accordance with
API RP 8B.
During refurbishment, parts that are not fully functional are replaced with new ones. The result is a top drive that is as good as new but comes at a much better price.
Below is a list of top drives we frequently offer. Most of these are popular models from Varco and TESCO, but we can also provide MH (Aker Solutions) offshore units as well as hydraulic AXON top drives specifically designed for shallow well drilling.
