Quotes from clients

Our customers are our strength. Read what they have to say about the Rig Walker.

Joey Stockton (Latshaw Drilling) Latshaw Drilling has the Veristic walking system on almost half of our rig fleet and we have not had one failure.
Brett Purvine (Nomac Drilling) It makes skidding a rig easier.  It’s these four pieces plus the HPU that can be rigged up, rigged down pretty easily.
Josh Simons (Cactus) Operated by a single man, the system can move the rig to the next well with minimal preparation.
