Rotary Drives Designed for Reverse Circulation
Holte manufacturing began making Top Heads 25 years ago when it became clear that existing products on the market were not meeting the needs for RC drilling. Holte started machining gears and the RC Top Head Drive was born.
Over the last quarter century, our design has matured to be durable, dependable, and straightforward for easy maintenance. Top Heads are customizable for reverse circulation, grout through systems, tilting heads, and more.
