The new Boomer E10 and E20 from Epiroc offer great flexibility and coverage thanks to their small footprint and powerful, multi-purpose BUT 45-booms. As part of Epiroc's Smart series, the drill rigs are equipped with automation features that increase operator safety and productivity, and come with an optional battery-electric driveline for reduced environmental impact and healthier underground conditions.

Besides being compact enough for mine development, both drill rigs feature BUT 45-booms with telescopic feed beams. These booms fit a wide range of applications and can tackle the requirements of heavy-duty construction work with ease.

With features like teleremote drilling, auto level and setup assist, Boomer E10 and E20 strengthen productivity and safety for operators. The optional teleremote drilling feature lets the operator work at a safe distance from the face and enables drilling during shift changes.

"Thanks to teleremote drilling the operator can drill a full face from a control room. Naturally, this is a safer workplace. In addition, you can reach up to 25 percent increased productivity by drilling during shift changes and lunch breaks," says Camilla Spångberg, Global Product Manager at Epiroc's Underground division.

Furthermore, both drill rigs provide operators with setup assist. Thanks to the carrier being equipped with an advanced scanner measuring the distance to the walls and face, positioning the rig perfectly in the mine or tunnel becomes an easy task for the operator.

"In combination with digital drill plans, setup assist eliminates time-consuming repositioning. It also ensures both productivity and great quality," says Spångberg.

In the comfortable and safe cabin, operators can enjoy low sound levels (<65 dbA) and less vibration, and a new panel interface for tramming. In addition, great visibility and multi-functional joysticks ensure that operators always keep their eyes on task.
