Ranger™ DX800R Surface top hammer drill rig

RangerTM DX800R drill rig is a hydraulic, self-propelled, self-con­tained, crawler-based surface drilling unit equipped with a radio remote control panel and rod handling system. Ranger DXR series is designed for efficient top hammer drilling in difficult terrain where a drill rig with operator’s cabin is not feasible.

Based on the well-known Ranger™ DX series with features such as a revolving superstructure for excellent drilling coverage, an innovative counterweight solution for ultimate stability, a Rock Pilot+ drilling control system, as well as other performance-enhancing solutions, the Ranger™ DXR series will get the job done even in the most challenging conditions. Therefore, the typical applications for the Ranger™ DXR are road cutting, pipe-line drilling and foundation drilling where radio remote control adds safety and flexibility.

Other models within this series of drill rigs include the RangerTM DX600R.
