Sandvik DI650 Down the hole drill rig

Leopard™ DI650i is a diesel powered, self-contained crawler mounted intelligent down-the-hole drill rig designed for demanding high-capacity production drilling applications in surface mining, as well as large-scale quarry applications. The drill is equipped with an operator’s cabin, fixed boom, dry dust collector, drill pipe changer and incorporates a state-of-art design and layout.

AutoMine® Multi-Lite for Boom drills is an automation system that enables mines to operate multiple drill rigs from a remote control room or alternatively from a trailer or van. The solution not only dramatically improves the working conditions and the immediate safety of the operator, but also keeps mine personnel out of hazardous areas.
