It may be small, but Atlas Copco’s four-wheel drive FlexiROC T15 R drill rig has had a big impact since its launch in 2008 and now it’s been updated with a range of improvements that make it more useful and efficient than ever.
Designed for drilling 2751mm holes, the FlexiROC T15 R is a vital piece of on-site equipment for construction and dimension stone quarrying, as well as other demanding tasks such as bolt installations and boulder blasting. New features include an extended feed of 3.66m (12ft), a robust foot attachment, a 2.8 Cummins Tier 4 Final engine and a 2.4Hz Bluetooth radio remote control unit.
The rig has a long boom reach of 4,500 mm and the 360-degree roll-over feed system enables holes to be drilled in practically any position. Not only that, it takes just a couple of minutes to re-pin the rig for either horizontal or vertical operation. The control system automatically adjusts impact and feed speed in proportion to rotation torque, which means high productivity and smooth drilling even in soft formations.
Equipped with an advanced hydraulic rock drill from the COP 1020 range, excellent tramming capability and support legs, it can be used in rough terrain and in locations that are normally difficult to access.
An added bonus is that fuel consumption can be kept to a minimum as the engine’s rpm can be adjusted from the remote control system.
