The CS10 is a user-friendly drilling rig that gives operators a sense of comfort during operation. The rig comes equipped with guarding around moving parts, safety sensors, warning displays, nocturnal lighting, safety stops and fire-extinguishers.


The robust two-gear drive, Durahead, rotation unit provides the neccecary torque and rpm ranges for coring. The chuck has a 124 mm spindle diameter allowing for P-size bits, core barrels and reamers to easily pass through the rotation unit.

Compact and strong

Despite its small size and compact exterior, the Christensen CS10 rig offers the torque and speed necessary for BO–PO size coring.

Product description

Our Christensen CS10 core drilling rig is a trailer-bound rig, which has a robust mast that is separated into three sections. This makes the CS10 easy to transport between work sites while the compact size allows it to be transported into tough terrain. The CS10 features a long, robust mast with hydraulic mast raise. The modern feed system, strong rod holder and the high capacity rotation unit ensures productive drilling. The CS10 has a drill capacity of 800m and can handle up to 6 m core barrels. Thanks to robust hydraulic legs the rig is kept firmly in place during drilling.
