Drilling machines are used to drill and blast holes at mines, quarries, and anywhere where holes are needed. Directional drills describe any boring that doesn’t go in a straight line vertically. Wells drilled for water, oil, and natural gas are vertical wells drilled directly into the earth. Horizontal drills are used to reach targets that vertical drills can’t reach located under cities, parks, or protected areas.

Buying a used drill is a cost-effective alternative to buying new or renting.
