Home Drilling Rigs Geotechnical Ibex Slope Drilling Rig

ibex-slope-drilling

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. 

Features

- Computer controlled auto-levelling, with manual override, means the working platform automatically levels, front to back and side to side, as the rig climbs the slope.

- Unique climbing winch and hydraulic anchors.

- Dual mast with winch for conducting dynamic sampling, SPT and rotary drilling. 

- Capable of tripping out 4m drill rods with a variable height mast extension.

- A hydraulically deployed walk way is mounted to the rig providing a safe working area and easy access to the work bench and drill mast.

- Fully radio remote controlled rig articulation and tracking, with manually operated drilling controls.

- Single hydraulic foot clamp, up to 180mm opening.

- Folds to a compact size with minimum assemble and short setup time. 

- Mounted on expandable tracks, with various rubber and steel track options available.

- Built-in 2.5m3 storage box for equipment and samples. Accessible from the deck and the rear.

- Rod rack with 0-75° hydraulic raise feature for easy access.
