DE142 Compact core drill rig

Sandvik DE142 Compact core drill

When you need deeper and larger holes the Sandvik DE142 is your solution. The Sandvik DE142 is for customers that prioritize performance when underground core drilling or require high torque drilling applications.

Sandvik's feed system ensures optimal balance of torque and rotation speed, improving penetration rate and bit life. Like other Sandvik DE100 series models, Sandvik DE142 features a load-sensing hydraulic system for directly proportional oil flow.

Sandvik uses a chainless feed system and has a 90 kW power pack. Sandvik DE142 features a torque of up to 1,250 Nm. The speed is infinitely variable from 0 to 1,100 rpm maximum.


  • Sandvik DE142 is fitted with a rod spin guard to provide maximum safety when working close to the rotating rod string
  • Ideal for deep hole core drilling in confined spaces
  • The load sensing system enables directly proportional oil flow, increasing efficiency
