Gardner-Denver Rock Drill.Inventor Robert Gardner devised the first effective speed controls (governors) for steam engines in 1859. From these simple beginnings, the company would expand by the dawn of the 20th Century to also offer boiler pumps that would see use in the drillingof oil and natural gas wells. Gardner mud pumps would contribute mightily o the first Texas oil boom. Oil companies weren’t the only ones to take advantage of Gardner technology, however. Early success by the Denver Rock Drill Company with Gardner Governors led to a merger of the two companies in 1927, creating a powerhouse manufacturer of portable air compressors, drills, and other equipment used by the mining and construction industries.
This Gardner Denver 3500BV directional drill was built for the US Navy in 1985, and is, in fact, the first of its kind to roll off the line. While it doesn’t exactly have the looks of a classic, we can attest to the fact that it’s still in excellent working order. With its 2″-4 1/2″ bore diameter and 50′ drill depth, this drill is suited for highway construction and maintenance, and drilling for the placement of dynamite. It features an open control area and hydrostatic drive. Its 8 cylinder four stroke CAT 3208 engine provides plenty of power, and its 15″ track shoes are still in good shape. The machine will run with the installation of a new battery, and it still packs more punch than its humble appearance would suggest.
Since its humble beginnings, Gardner Denver has gone public, been acquired, been spun off, and gone public yet again. Like their equipment, it seems that the company just can’t be kept down. This drill is a capable piece that’s served its owner long and well, an enduring testament to the quality with which it was built, and to the Gardner Denver name.
