Essential Factors When Comparing Excavator Rock Drill Models

When you are in the market for a new or used excavator rock drill, taking the time to compare the options from different manufacturers is always important. While many contractors and equipment owners may start with the big manufacturers and companies, it is really in your best interests to consider the smaller, specialized manufacturers as well.

These smaller companies are able to design and develop custom excavator rock drill models that are built to the specifications of the buyer as well as for a specific type of excavator. This ensures a perfect fit with your equipment in everything from the mount style and position for the drill to the machine as well as in how the controls are positioned in the cab.

In addition to these factors, there are several other considerations when selecting a new drill. Whenever possible, compare at least three different manufacturers to get a feel as to the features and possibilities available.

Ease of Use

The ease of use of the full excavator rock drill is critical to consider. This includes if the drill can be used for angle drilling or if it is strictly used for vertical drilling. Some of the designs have a full 360 degrees of lateral movement, which provides the greatest flexibility in use.

There is also the need to consider how the system is maintained and the ease of changing out drifters. While all of these drills will have some basic maintenance requirements, look for systems with design features that reduce the need for continual maintenance. They should also have a simple way to change out drifters to reduce downtime.

Most companies using these types of drills will also require custom options. This can include different feed differences or different positioning on the excavator for specific types of jobs. Smaller companies are able to incorporate this customization into a model; you will just need to work with the team to provide the specifications required.
