A new range of possibilities

The new non-cabin Ranger DXR series surface rigs offer the reliability and large drilling coverage area of the conventional Ranger DX series drill rigs, in a lighter and more mobile package.

In response to customer demand, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has introduced the non-cabin Ranger DXR series surface rigs, expanding its Ranger DS series of surface top hammer drill rigs. The new drill rigs can reach places that can be hazardous for operators.

Suitable for construction applications, quarries and open pit mines, the new rigs – Ranger DX600R and Ranger DX800R – essentially offer the attributes of conventional Ranger DX series drill rigs, reliability and large drilling coverage area from the standard 17.6 square metres to an optional 26.4 square metres, in a lighter and more mobile package. The non-cabin Ranger DXR drill rigs flourish on unstable benches and deep cuts typical to applications such as road and railroad construction, foundation drilling, trenching and pipeline contracts.
