AKITA Drilling's Evolution Series 850XE rigs feature a unique dual orientation ability with the catwalk location. The catwalk can be oriented in either the traditional front location or the space saving Drillers Side (DS) location.  This dual orientation capability allows for optimal rig placement on tight or elongated drilling pads.  The DS catwalk orientation reduces the overall drilling rig footprint by 12 percent as compared to the drilling rig footprint when using the traditional front oriented catwalk.
