Rock Drill and Thrust Leg

Rockdrills are used to drill blastholes, roofbolt holes and holes for support and rigging in underground mining.

Its simplicity and robust construction makes it more reliable, resulting in reduced maintenance and expenses.

Drilling with water powered drills and using rudimentary hearing protection ensures that drill operators always remain below the legislated equivalent noise exposure.

The health and safety of underground staff is enhanced and this results in higher productivity  levels and less facetime.
