Essential Factors When Comparing Excavator Rock Drill Models

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. Be the first to like. Like...

Finding The Right Limited Access Drill Rig For The Job

Finding The Right Limited Access Drill Rig For The Job It would be very helpful if all areas that need to be drilled were in easy to access, flat and obstruction free. As a professional you know that this is rarely the case, particularly if you are working in rural areas or in areas of the country with challenging topography. It can also be the case for drilling in confined spaces such as in buildings or to create retaining walls in already developed neighborhoods and along roadways. For these types of drilling operations, a limited access drill rig is the ideal solution to the problem. These rigs, as the name implies, are designed to be easy to move into and use in areas where a standard drill rig mounted on larger equipment is simply not safe or feasible. Options to Consider Skid steers are often a very good option for the equipment as they are highly mobile and travel across more rugged terrain than larger machines. Additionally, with a well-designed skid steer limited access drill rig, it will be possible to drill from either side. This is a very important consideration as it helps the operator to quickly and easily position the skid steer and the drill attachment to be in the right position without endless maneuvering. Additionally, these types of drill rigs are set up to allow for maximum options in positioning the drill rig. With additional stability and control to the mast, the operator can maintain the position of the equipment for safe drilling even when conditions are less than ideal. It is also possible to use a drilling machine that allows for remote operator control. This is a very safe option that can allow the operator to be as far as twenty meters from the drilling unit. Indoor drilling or drilling in specific outdoor locations this protection is not only important but also an essential consideration. Running costs will also be a consideration with a limited access drill rig. Even if a drill rig is great at its job if it is cost prohibitive to operate it is not a sound investment. Finally, it will be important to ensure that different drill heads can be used with the rig to allow for various applications. This can include augering, micro piling, drilling and anchoring. The more applications the machine is able to handle the greater the use and the ability to use the drilling machine on small and large projects, which in turn expands our options for...

The Versatility of the Modern Excavator Machine

The Versatility of the Modern Excavator Machine Today’s digging equipment is tough and can do a variety of jobs. In addition, many of these machines can perform even more jobs when you add attachments. Whether you choose an excavator drill attachment or other feature, you will receive a lot of benefits. Let’s look at some of the work these machines are capable of performing, with the right equipment. Types Excavators are designed to work in specific areas and perform specific digging tasks. For example, if you do construction work you probably have a crawler. They use a track system instead of wheels for greater stability and traction. Crawlers can dig trenches, foundations, holes, dredge, cut, lift and perform demolition work. If you need deep excavation work, you may have a dragline machine. They utilize a hoist with a line that lowers and raises the bucket. Dragline equipment is used in surface mining, road construction and even under water applications. For digging jobs with limited access or space, some companies choose compact excavation machines. They are smaller and lighter than standard machines and more fuel efficient. Other types include suction and long reach models. Attachments The good thing about excavation machines is the many different attachments you can add. For example, instead of investing in a drill rig, you might consider adding an excavator drill attachment. These drills can be customized to the model of machine you own. For maximum efficiency, these units may be mounted of the front, rear or even the side of the machine. Breakers If you need to break up rock or stone, you may want to think about adding a breaker. Breakers work like large jackhammers and can exert a surprising amount of impact force. Clamps In some kinds of work, materials are simply too large for the bucket. Clamps hold onto things like large tree trunks or huge chunks of concrete and allow the machine to move them about. Graders If you have the need to level out ground, a grading blade can be a handy attachment. They come in many different sizes depending on the kind of work you do. Grapples These attachments are very useful for picking up lots of material at one time. They come in several different styles and configurations. Whether you are looking for an excavator drill attachment, grader, or a different kind of bucket, make sure to go with an experienced manufacturer who can custom fit your attachment to your machine. This will give you...

Oil Well Drilling Basics

Oil Well Drilling Basics Whether you are an individual or company seeking to drill an oil well, the procedure is not simple. Of course you will need professional assistance, and you might need an excavator drill attachment or other specialized equipment for the job. If you are not sure whether to drill or not, here are some helpful tips to give you a good idea of what to expect. Check out the Site Have you done extensive testing for oil? Just because there are other wells in the area, it doesn’t mean you have found a good source. Most people opt for an oil/gas survey of the land. These surveys check for evidence of oil and this is a cost effective strategy. You also may want to hire a seismologist. He or she can use ultrasound technology to check for pockets of fossil fuels. Consider the Complications It’s best to think about what can possibly go wrong before you start drilling. This will help you develop a plan for risk management. Consider issues like these: * What is the total budget for the project? * How long do you expect production to last? * What ROI are you expecting? In other words, what is the least amount of ROI you can get by with? * What kind of equipment will you need? Can you save money by investing in an excavator drill attachment or is this not feasible? * When do you expect to hit oil? * What are you going to do when production ceases? Will you drill deeper or simply abandon the project? * Check out the current oil market to see if you are making the right decision at this time. Who Are You Going to Hire? How many employees will you need? Are you going to hire independent contractors? Remember, an independent contractor may at first seem more expensive but when you eliminate employee benefits and issues like workman’s compensation, independent contractors may be the most cost effective option. Do You Need to Develop Access to the Site? In some areas, you may have to create a special road. This will greatly increase your initial costs. A remote drilling site can be very expensive and you may need to save money with limited access machinery like drilling wagons or excavator drill attachment equipment. You should consider hiring a geologist, to better understand rock formations. Also, an ecologist can save you some major headaches on environmental issues which can arise...
