Combined dynamic cone penetrometers / drilling machine (2 in 1) allowing to work with helical augers, are therefore subject to exactly the same rules.

It is up to the manufacturer and seller of such machines to apply these rules to the equipment concerned, but also to the purchaser, who is equally responsible, to ensure that these regulations complies with at the time of purchase.

Indeed, with regard to the obligations of the user, "the responsibility for the conformity of the machines is not borne solely by the person responsible for placing them on the market. Indeed, company managers are prohibited from making non-compliant work equipment available to their staff. "(Safety manual for drilling machines from INRS - ED 6108).
