Reliable The Scorpion has proven its reliability in harsh underground environments. Years of operator-driven refinement mean the Scorpion keeps going and going.
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.
Easy to Operate, Ergonomic Design The compact control layout, distinctive lever design and comprehensive labelling make the Scorpion easy to operate. The operator-friendly 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.
Variety of Feed Mast Sizes 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.
Compact Size The Scorpion is compact in size and is fitted with a manoeuvrable boom and drill mast. It can operate in confined areas and alongside belts with the operator isolated from drilling and bolting.
Mining Design Guidelines (MDG) Compliant Scorpion complies with all relevant Australian Mining Design Guidelines, including 35.1 and 41. This allows speedy acceptance into underground operations.
Easy to Transport The incorporation of tine pockets in the design of the Scorpion makes it easy to transport with a forklift or LHD.
