Liebherr LB28 is designed simply as a rotating rig. All conventional drilling methods can be done with LB28, such as: Kelly drilling, continuous aircraft drilling, drilling with partial or total displacement instruments, double rotation drilling and soil mixing. In addition, the LB 28-320 has a powerful lead that can easily handle high torque and large traction of the wiring system.

This is to ensure a very fast operating cycle. Under conditions of a construction site of limited elevation, such as under bridges or below power lines, the rig can be equipped with a shortened ‘low end’ head.
