L.A.D. – Track Mounted Limited Access Geotech Drill

MPP's new limited access geotechnical drill. This compact, rubber-tracked rig was designed to complete work on drill sites where access is limited and/or environmental impact must be kept to a minimum. Compact enough to drive through a standard door frame, the rig has a width of just 34 inches and a height of 69 inches when configured in travel mode. With its 2500 ft-lbs of rotary torque and 12,500 lbs of pullback, the rig can efficiently run both hollow and solid stem augers and complete typical geotechnical programs. Designed with portability in mind, the rig can be broken down into three lightweight modules for helicopter transport. The rig is capable of drilling auger (hollow and solid stem), RAB (rotary air blast) and advancing casing. It is also compatible with our SPT auto hammer. The limited access drill's versatility and portable design make it ideal for any mineral exploration, geotechnical or environmental drilling program.
