TRACK DRILLS

Rouillier Drilling’s track drills can drill up to 1,600 metres at N/WL size, depending on the model. Their wide treads have the benefit of leaving a relatively small footprint. The latest KmN 1.4S model maintains a ground pressure of 25 kPa. These drills are self-propelled, so they do not require heavy machinery to move them from one site to another.

Total weight: 33,500 lb
Drilling capacity: 1,600 m on the N/WL

Heliportable drills

Heliportable drills are easy to transport and are built to minimize the number of helicopter trips needed. 22 to 24 B2 helicopter trips are generally required depending on the drilling depths involved. These drills are generally used in areas where land access is impossible or non-existent.

Weight: 1,800 lb (heaviest piece)
Drilling capacity: 800 m on the N/WL
