Joy Global has released the Montabert rock drill attachment, the CPA 295, to increase the production rate of conventional drill rigs.
It can drill holes from 63.5mm to 101.6mm in diameter, and up to 22m deep; helping lower costs while increasing application potential.
The attachment is designed for easy connection and installation and can be mounted on any excavator weighing more than 25 tonnes. Its patented control system is equipped with the latest generation Montabert hydraulic drifter, the HC95.
Other features of the CPA 295 include: an efficient hydraulic dust control system, rod carrousel and a radio remote control. It also features an advanced Intelsense controller system, which automatically detects and analyses various rock layouts to best optimise the drifter striking frequency and energy; improving operating costs, uptime and ease of maintenance.
