Even in granite-like conditions the new Cat MD5150C Top Hammer Drill is out-performing down-the-hole rigs, according to the company, with its higher productivity and much lower fuel consumption – while achieving comparable hole straightness. Cat drill customer Iron Mountain Quarry, located south of St. Louis, reports that overall productivity is almost double a competitor’s DTH drill. This productivity is achieved with the powerful Cat HPR6832 hydraulic rock drill, the new carousel rod changer and the efficient Cat C11 Engine.
