Atlas Copco launched the FlexiROC T30 R radio remote control tophammer drill rig equipped with either a COP 1240 or COP 1640 drill for 2- to 3.5-in. holes.
The standard hydraulic carousel-type rod handling system uses 12-ft. rods. The carousel carries four rods for a maximum drilling depth of 57 ft.
The FlexiROC T30 R comes with an interim Tier 4 Cummins QSB4.5 turbo charged engine providing improved diesel consumption over its predecessor, the ROC D3 RRC.
The rig’s low center of gravity and high ground clearance provide mobility over the most challenging terrain. It is well suited to demanding construction or small- to medium-size quarrying jobs. The FlexiROC T30 R can also handle specialized tasks such as installing self-drilling anchors, drilling blastholes in hard rock and dimensional stone quarrying.
Maurice Hunter, Atlas Copco business line manager, said the FlexiROC T30 R rig’s extended boom coverage of 14 ft. through an 80-degree radius was designed to save time and money by delivering more holes from fewer set-ups.
“The FlexiROC T30 R’s compact size means the FlexiROC T30 R can easily be transported from job to job, allowing contractors to maximize the availability of their investment,” said Hunter.
