There are many reasons to choose Atlas Copco‘s Mustang 4-F1, but the most important of those is its impressive flexibility. The Mustang is a down-the-hole, track-mounted rig that is particularly useful for applications where space is restricted. From all types of construction to geotechnical and geothermal applications, this rig will go anywhere it needs to go.
The Mustang 4-F1 is a crawler mounted rig with high ground clearance, which makes it easier to move over uneven ground. It is compact for residential and tight industrial applications to drill 4-6 inch (100-150 mm) holes, 300 ft (90 m) deep. Its top-head rotary design works ideally with Symmetrix® drilling systems for casing advance and extraction, and all COP, QL, and TD down-the-hole (DTH) hammers can be used with this rig. This model features wide pads for reduced ground pressure in soft surfaces (12 in. or 300 mm). The Mustang 4-F1 is designed for ease of handling and transportation to and from the work site.
Flexibility of use means better rig utilization
The Mustang can be utilized in a variety of applications. One day a Mustang could be working on foundation drilling, advancing the Symmetrix casing system in unstable ground or tight quarters. It can perform geotechnical drilling for ground anchors in slope or embankment stabilization. The Mustang can also be used to drill geothermal wells for a high-rise or residential backyard. Whatever the environment or task, the Mustang 4-F1 can get there.
Flexibility of design means freedom
The new Mustang range is rooted in Atlas Copco™s philosophy of designing high-performance equipment for its customers. Modernized components and upgraded quality and safety standards are unmatched in the industry. The Mustang features a newly designed rotation unit, compact and centered operator™s panel with easily accessible controls for better ergonomics and safe operation, new rod holder and breaker, a newly designed feed cradle assembly, and new winches.
