“Atlas Copco has always been committed to continuous innovation and providing Chinese customers with highly cost-effective products,” said Freddy Man, General Manager of Atlas Copco Mining and Rock Excavation Technique Customer Center, Greater China. “This new product gives reliable performance and high productivity thanks to the proven technology behind Atlas Copco’s successful hydraulic surface drilling products. We believe it will benefit our customers in terms of increased production and profit gains.”

The PowerROC D45 is simply designed with the hole range of 90-130mm. it combines high reliability due to low amount of electric components with increased output without added labor costs compared with pneumatic rigs. Its compact structure and highly efficient system are designed to reduce fuel consumption and it also offers unmatched gradeability, making the moving extremely easy.

“The hole range covers the applications in most aggregate and limestone quarries today, with 115 mm as the most popular hole diameter. This rig is therefore perfectly suited for that size and is also exceptionally easy to use and maintain.” Weiwen Xu, Product Manager for Atlas Copco surface rigs in Nanjing, explains, “We believe it will become very popular on the market in the near future.”

As an integrated hydraulic drill rig, the cab, automatic rod handling system and dust collection system provide the safe operation and environmental working conditions as well as high working efficiency.

Offering unrivaled performance and cost effectiveness, the PowerROC D45 hydraulic surface drilling rig is now available across China, and the first rig has been purchased by a customer from Yiyang, Hunan province.
