hmmm I was wanting to dig a well as soon as the MIL gives up the land. I don't want a compressor run well. I want one that fully operates by hand or by a windmill or both. Basically an old fashioned one that wont be an issue if electricity goes out for extended amount of time.there are many ways to put a well in, hand digging one is hard an dangerous. Hand augering is also possible but finding the equipment could be a challenge. The best DIY options are the deep rock home well rig which run S10-12k, the DIY kit from the website I posted for under $600 but lacks the compressor which from what I've read will need to be 5.5 hp to supply the needed 16 CFM at 90+ PSI. or to use hydro point rig you can see on youtube which is depth limited.
I had a friend who is a professional driller in Kentucky who said he put in monitoring wells with one of the rented Little Beaver post hole drillers you can rent. You can also ine Simco Earthprobe and Geodrill rigs which have a hydraulic motors and augers to drill wells with that can go to 100 ft or more. I used to operate both types for soil sampling of contaminated soils (but that's a different process).
