  • Air / Hydraulic Power
    The air-driven hydraulic pump provides plenty of power for drilling and tramming. Operates on as little as 60 psi of compressed air
    supply with no electrical power requirement, making it easier to set up underground.

    controls and labelling reduce training time, increase productivity, enhance safety and ensure the Scorpion is readily accepted by operators; resulting in a lower cost of ownership.

    Different drill-mast sizes can be installed on the Scorpion, and simply changing the drill mast allows it to operate in a variety of seam heights.
