Higgins Rig company has been buying and selling drill equipment for water wells, oil well drilling, gas well drilling and mining industries for over 25 years. They buy old equipment and rebuild it to work like new. Some of their inventory includes equipment such as air compressors and Boosters, auger drills and rigs, bucket rigs, cable tools and draw works, drill casing and pipe, generators and engines, grout pumps, mud pumps and mud systems, oilfield equipment, pump hoists, rotary drills and rigs as well as water trucks.

They have sold equipment all over the United States and internationally as far as Austrailia.

Recently they decided to offer their rebuilding services to the local community.

“We saw that there was a need for repairing and rebuilding hydraulic equipment,” said owner, Craig Higgins, “We already have everything needed to work on hydraulics so we decided to branch out.”

Higgins Rig Company now serves the LaRue and surrounding communities looking for hydraulic repair and rebuilding.

“We can tear down hydraulics, cylandars pumps and motors and completely rebuild them, we’ll test it to make sure everything is working as it should,” said Rhett Higgins. “We just wanted to help out the community and offer something that people could benefit from.”
