Rock Driller is a compact drilling machine built upon the PHP 90 model. The column is mounted on top of a highly robust metal levelling support platform, allowing for vertical, horizontal and slant drilling using a 3´´ down-the-hole hammer to a maximum depth of 30 m, which makes it possible to place the column at any position from 0° to 90°. Four stabilizing legs perform the levelling.
The platform is provided with levelling while the column is equipped with an inclinometer (0°- 90°). In most situations thanks to its self-supporting structure the machine does not require ground anchorage, making it an excellent option for drilling holes for the passage of the diamond wire. The consumption of compressed air is reduced to a minimum as it is only used to operate the down-the-hole hammer, while the rotary head, the drilling feed and the positioning of the column are hydraulic.
The standard machine is equipped with 1 m conical drilling rods, a 3" down-the-hole hammer and a 90 mm diameter drill bit.
