Montabert launches CPA 225E drilling attachment in North America
Designed for use on excavators ranging in size from 15 to 25 tons, the Montabert CPA 225E drilling attachment enables operators to transition from digging to drilling in a matter of minutes. The CPA 225E drilling attachment is easily transported between jobsites, delivering optimal drilling power in the blast hole, slide stabilization, tunneling, anchor bolting and other long-reach applications.
The 3,197-pound CPA 225E drills holes measuring 1-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter and up to 14 feet deep. The addition of an optional 12-foot rod adder enables the CPA 225ER to reach an impressive drill depth of 26 feet.
Standard features on the single-pass CPA 225E drilling attachment include an aluminum feed providing 47 degrees of drill rotation as well as a high performance Montabert HC50 drifter. The HC50 is equipped with a proactive hydraulic dampener and an energy recovery system to ensure a long life span for the striking bar and provide high efficiency drilling performance. In addition to ensuring straight hole drilling, the HC50 drifter delivers progressive blows while absorbing and recovering reflected energy afeguarding various components of the drilling attachment from damage.
The industry-exclusive Intelsense system is essential to the CPA 225E drilling attachment’s overall performance. This radio-controlled performance-managing feature automatically analyzes drilling conditions and adjusts factors such as feed pressure, feed speed, anti-jamming controls and percussion pressure.
The radio remote control capabilities of the CPA 225E allow the drilling attachment to be operated from outside the excavator’s cab, eliminating difficult and expensive excavator customization. A hydraulic dust collector is standard on the CPA 225E, offering high suction capacity or the use of a water injection system.
Countries worldwide have benefitted from the advanced drilling technology of Montabert since 1970. Backed by a vast parts, service and support network, this new drilling attachment will provide operators with a reliable, versatile and productive drilling alternative.
