Description















This should get a couple of chuckles for you rust collectors. It is a large old well drilling machine mounted on an old GMC truck bed. It is considered a cable tool or hammer drill, which drops a large weighted bit over and over again to drill the well hole. This is the same type of machine that was used to drill oil wells way back when. The truck itself has a 6-cylinder engine that actually pulled this contraption over the Cuesta Grade (a very risky venture). This unit would never in a million years get OSHA approval, but might be great for a business minded person south of the border. Keep in mind that it is very heavy and cumbersome. Asking $24000 or offer. Email will(at)bidslo.com : substitute @ for (at). Smaller items can be shown at the SLO Sunset Drivein Swapmeet on Sundays. To check out larger items, a trip out to the hills in Santa Margarita has to be arranged.
