California Contractor Hammers Home Jobs with ‘Thor’

Anderson Drilling's 'Thor' Cluster Drill being removed from the hole

Anderson Drilling has a unique tradition dating back to the founders of the compnay where they name most items in their fleet of foundation drilling equipment. They recently purchases a 48-inch Atlas Copco cluster drill for a bridge project in California, and appropriately named it ‘Thor’ after the Norse God of thunder (and the Marvel comic book hero by the same name that wields a magical hammer). The project is a bridge project near San Diego that required drilled shafts with 20 foot long rock sockets from 48 to 96 inches in diameter in 25,000 psi granite.
