Excellent operator conditions and support reduce fatigue and increase blast hole production over a 12 hour shift. Night shift drilling SWPs have seen safe operations during past drilling programs. Excellent rig availability and high levels of production have been proven. Although set up to drill reverse circulation, the current rig is quickly and easily converted back to the original configuration as a blast hole machine.
Pre-Split capabilities are similar to production blast holes with the addition of the wide range of mast movement to accurately drill Pre-Split holes. Digital technology enables the operator to set the rig up to drill holes at the correct dip, azimuth and depth, resulting in even batters.
