Ranger DX800 Surface top hammer drill rig

Ranger DX800 Surface tophammer drill rig

Ranger DX800 is a hydraulic, diesel-powered, self-propelled top-hammer drill rig, and is engineered for work in challenging terrain for site set up, pre-split, and production in surface drilling. The self-contained and crawler-mounted rig has a revolving superstructure, unmatched stability, and drills holes with a diameter of 76 to 127 millimeters (3 to 5 inches).

Ranger DX800 features an ergonomic, high-visibility cabin and a rod handling system, prioritizing operator safety and experience.

Ranger DX800 drill rigs are best suited to drill hole sizes between 76 to 127 mm (2 to 5 in.) in applications such as road cutting, pipeline drilling and foundation drilling as well as production drilling in medium-sized quarries and open pit mines.

This equipment ensures stability thanks to its counterweight solution, which keeps a steady operation even in the toughest conditions. The rig also features the Rock Pilot+ drilling control system, which is designed to ensure smooth rotation, solid rock contact and fast penetration in different rock conditions.

Other models within this series of drill rigs include the Ranger DX700, Ranger DX600 and Ranger DX500.
