Pengo has released a redesigned Combo Drill Bucket. The new design couples an automatic and manual trip-release for ease of use on both European and conventional drill rigs. The drill bucket has a heavy-duty hinge design, large radial vent and a patent-pending Cam actuated plunger rod. Additionally, there is a fully isolated actuator that is not exposed to drilling spoils. The Pengo drill bucket also features double cutting bottoms available with interchangeable rock and dirt heads that have auto-close actions. The close action is controlled by the patent-pending “scissor grab” which assures a safe locking door. Although designed to be used with Kelly boxes from 4 in. to 200 mm, the Pengo drill bucket can be built to accompany a customer’s special drilling needs.
