DE712 Heavy-duty core drill rig

Sandvik DE712 heavy duty core drill is available in the Tier 3 diesel engine configuration. The series boasts features that improve safety, productivity and reliability.

Sandvik DE712 features the right balance of robust and safe design, quality components and construction to minimize your downtime. It boasts excellent mast handling and assembly characteristics. All drilling operations are centrally controlled from the control panel, located at the rear of the rig. Sandvik DE712 is easy to operate and maintain.

Sandvik made safety the top priority when designing the Sandvik DE712, incorporating several safety features without compromising on capacity.
