ICUEE, the International Construction & Utility Equipment Exposition, will take place October 1-3 in Louisville, Kentucky. ICUEE is the utility industry's largest trade show, covering 28+ acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits, and bringing together more than 18,000 utility professionals every two years.

Watson Drill Rigs

Watson says several drilling contractors have commented that their success is attributed to the dependable production results they've experienced with the Watson 1100 drill and that utility equipment rental fleets receive several requests for the 1100 rig over other competitive rigs in this same size. The primary feature of Watson rigs is the controlled free-fall kelly winch and the top applied crowd. These features, along with a single wrap grooved winch drum, assure ease of operation and maximum drilling production capabilities.  

Watson will have the 1100TM short mast on display at ICUEE. The 1100 is offered with either mechanical or hydraulic rotary, in multiple mast configurations and on either a conventional truck or a crawler track base.
