Dando Ibex Slope Drilling Rig

The new track mounted Dando Ibex allows dynamic sampling, SPT and rotary drilling to be conducted safely and securely on inclines of up to 55 degrees.

Featuring a hydraulically deployed working platform, computer controlled auto-levelling and expanding track system, the dual mast rig is able to operate on previously inaccessible slopes and is ideal for work on areas such as railway embankments.
