a friend was telling me he used one of these to drill a 230ft well (100 of which was rock) in arkansas. Just wondered if anyone had any experience with these. Sure would be a lot cheaper than having a well driller out( provided you could rent one or had more than one well to do)

We had one several years ago, we were not able to drill on our property as we'd get down about 15' and hit solid rock. We were successful in drilling wells on several friends properties, and we got the auger attachment to drill for fence posts, so between what we got for drilling friends wells, what it would have cost us to put fence posts in, and what we sold it for, we got our money's worth.
