Liebherr LB24 Rotary Drilling Rig

Aarsleff Ground Engineering is delighted to announce the addition of the Liebherr LB24 rotary drilling rig to complement an already extensive fleet of piling and geotechnical rigs. The new addition allows Aarsleff to service the rotary drill market, including the execution of drilling, continuous flight auger piles, drilling with partial or full displacement tools, double rotary drilling and soil mixing.

The LB24 rotary drilling rig has a high engine output with automatic engine speed control. Its sturdy and solid design allows for high alignment forces, simultaneous control of several moments via load-sensing multi-circuit hydraulics and high pull and push forces that enable quick assembly of rotary.
