This is an economical version of the Xs GT. The Xs GTE system has a shorter butt welded crown, and has a limited number of carbide inserts.
The Xs GTE system is predominantly designed for piling, micro piling, anchor installation and other civil engineering applications in shallow holes where casing is permanent or retrieved. Overburden can be cased and sub-casing anchor sockets drilled into bedrock in one operation with the same driver-bit without removing the drill string. The driver has four (4) recesses which transfer impact directly to the crown, giving the necessary force to drill and drive the casing down. The drilling end of the driver bit, like conventional bits, is bigger than the body itself, to provide clearance when drilling into bedrock.
