Compact, Flexible, and Efficient: the New BAUER BG 15 H Value Line

With the completely redesigned BAUER BG 15 H, Bauer Maschinen GmbH is breaking new ground in the ValueLine. This state-of-the-art innovation specifically fulfils the requirements of a highly functional and cost-effective machine in the small drilling rig segment and scores with extremely compact transport dimensions. Increased efficiency, increased mobility, increased flexibility, and increased comfort – the BAUER BG 15 H is a clear statement of functionality and, at the same time, offers all the advantages needed to face the challenges of small construction sites. With the new generation of drilling rigs, Bauer also continues to rely on the 186 kW Caterpillar diesel engines for strong performance and low fuel consumption. The optimally adjusted hydraulic system has already proved itself in practical deployment with its “big-sister-rig” BAUER BG 26 and has a direct impact on fuel consumption. This provides the BG 15 H with high levels of efficiency during daily drilling operations. A potential drilling depth of up to 21 metres in single-layer winch operation significantly reduces wear. And even with up to 4-metrelong drill strings during cased Kelly drilling, the innovation from Bauer makes a giant leap forward in terms of efficiency. The BAUER BG 15 H is available in two different configurations and is, therefore, extremely flexible and versatile. The standard model, for example, not only offers a drilling depth of 32 metres but also the option of “drilling under the mast.” In addition, the “upgraded version” provides customers with the option of a drilling depth of up to 44 metres and the CFA drilling process.
