I purchased this rig as a second/backup rig in 2017 from a trusted drilling contractor in Alberta. He had previously purchased it from a nearby competitor who was retiring. I have primarily used it to drill a 7 7/8" surface hole installing 6 5/8" steel casing, followed by a 6" bottom hole, installing 4.5" pvc liner. I most commonly drill with air and water injection, only using mud when the surface drilling requires (ranging 40-140 feet when needed), and most wells are completed between 140-340 feet. I drill and complete a well in   1-2 days with this rig. At this time, I plan to operate only my 2006 TH-60 by myself and have no more need for another rig.

This rig drilled 6 wells in July 2020 and is now washed and parked. Everything is currently working and includes 400 feet of 3.5" drill rod (9 joints in carousel), sub and 7 7/8" bit, sub and 6" button bit, 8ft stabilizer for overburden, lifting swivel plug, middle step, and mud pit. I've never used hammer bits with it. All cables are in good shape, as are the tires and new rims.

It was originally a TH-55 but according to the previous owner, some changes were made which make it no different than a TH-60. Myself and our rig guy don't see a difference between this rig and a TH-60.

I put a brand new Detroit Series 60 engine (from Detroit factory) in the truck in 2018, replaced the rig compressor with a good used one, and put in a new ECM in 2019. Feed cables, shivs, and top drive swivel were replaced in 2019. Between 2017 and 2020 I put about $100,000 Canadian dollars into the truck and rig.

The truck had it's safety done in March 2020, and is valid until March 2021.

Fully loaded, the weight is 57,500 pounds.

Controls are hydraulic and uses the original slider box.

10 speed transmission.

Rig has a 600/250 air compressor, which works great with anything I've seen, and a 5x6 piston mud pump. Transfer and gear boxes were rebuilt by the previous owner.

I can forward you the previous owner's contact information and our local rig guy who has done the majority of the work on it if you are serious.

The rig can be viewed 15 min South of Calgary at our local rig shop, so everything can be tested and any anticipated costs evaluated. 

Price $ 149,000 USD / $ 199,000 CAN. Price includes 400 feet of 3.5" pipe, 2 subs, 2 bits, 1 stabilizer, 1 pit.
