Dawson Construction Plant announced the UK launch of a new low headroom, long reach, deep drilling system, last month.
'Lodril means it is no longer necessary to stand over the hole' said the supplier's commercial director Mark Lee.
'The key is a low headroom attachment that goes on a standard excavator capable of drilling very deep holes.'
He claims the attachment offers extra versatility and performance with less initial investment, compared to traditional equipment, and savings in excess of 30%.
The plant can work in 4m to 6m headroom drill to 30m using a telescopic kelly bar.
'It erects and collapses very quickly meaning it's a quick mobilisation solution, ' said Lee. 'The tooling is industry standard so we're not trying to preach what people should be using, ' he added.
