Boart Longyear says its new flyable SC11 surface drill rig is the only compact and modular rig in its class that offers 5,456 Nm of torque and can manage PQ-size rods. The drill rig delivers large-diameter, deep-hole drilling with a 132 kN pullback rating and features a variable-speed motor. The rig was designed to easily break down into flyable modules, with the heaviest lift being only 680 kilograms. Lifting points are positioned at the module’s center of gravity for balance. Quick-connect hydraulic couplings accelerate assembly/disassembly and prevent oil spills.
