Drill Rig features mast articulation

Boart Longyear has released the new DeltaBase (DB) 95 drill rig for the foundation construction market, which the company says features a compact footprint, best-in-class mast articulation and the highest power of any rig in its range. It is targeted at tieback and soil nail drilling applications and offers contractors an excellent level of versatility for difficult site conditions.

One of the most innovative and useful features of the new DB95 is the patent-pending MasterLink mast articulation design. The technology enables fast on-hole setup for foundation construction drillers by maintaining precise and consistent drilling angles as the mast articulates. Operators can easily adjust the height of the mast as necessary while locking-in the drill-mast inclination as they proceed. The drill system is mounted to an independent pendulum crawler which is capable of handling extreme terrain without the need for stabilization jacks. The drill is light, weighing only 10,000 kg (22,050 lbs), but it boasts heavy-duty specs in a highly portable format. Operating with a 105 kW (141 hp) power pack, this compact drill delivers the highest power in its size and class. The hydraulic power pack of the DB95 features load-sensing technology which provides power-on-demand, saving fuel, maximizing energy efficiency and extending engine life. Oversized hydraulic hoses ensure efficient power transmission and reduce power loss. In addition, the mast of the DB95 has a maximum torque rating of 15,000 Nm and a pullback capacity of 7,000 kg, providing contractors with the strength to manage a wide range of foundation applications. Contractors can customize the drill with several drill head options. A range of single rotary head or single hydraulic drifter configurations (with available side-shift) meet many common drilling requirements. The DB95 can also be fitted with the most powerful double rotary head system in its class. In addition, radio remote driving controls are standard features of the DB95, designed to enhance site safety and driller productivity.
