Top Drives

Top drives are big power swivels for the drilling industry.  But top drives also include many other automated drilling and pipe handling functions along with a torque track to react the torque.

We specialize in hydraulic top drives which are a logical development of our decades of hydraulic power swivel experience.

Our designs are about simplicity.

Power Swivels

Power swivels are drilling machines for the well servicing industry.     They include at least 3 functions:

  • Rotation of the pipe
  • Safe support of hanging pipe 
  • A sealing arrangement which allows pumping high pressure drilling fluid from the mud pump down through the rotating main shaft
