DR560 down-the-hole drill rig

Our Sandvik DR560 is diesel-powered, high-pressure down-the-hole (DTH) drill rig equipped with an up to 34.5 bar (500 psi) compressor. It drills holes with a diameter of 115 - 216 millimeters (4 ½ - ½ inches) down to a maximum depth of up to 54.9 meters (180 feet). The large air volume enables both pre-split and production drilling, and the heavy-duty structure allows for an optional RC package for in-pit grade control.

Advantages

  • Dual compressor pressure setting for drilling with increased air or high pressure
  • Heavy-duty drilling platform with center-mounted boom for maximum coverage, flexibility and longevity
  • Cold-weather options ensure operation in tough weather conditions
