John Deere Engines For High Performance Drilling Rig

Posted on:21/06/2016


The drill has been produced by Dando Drilling International Limited, a UK manufacturer of drilling rigs and equipment for the water well, mineral exploration, geotechnical and geothermal sectors. The Dando Sonic SDC375 is a multipurpose sonic drilling rig capable of continuously collecting large diameter undisturbed samples at much higher rates than conventional drilling methods. The drilling rig is being used in a copper mine in Chile exploring copper deposits at an altitude of 5000m.

Barrus worked on the project with Manuflex, a specialist high quality sheet metal fabrications and finishing engineering company. The John Deere 6090HF485, 275hp diesel engine was supplied by Barrus to Manuflex who built a complete enclosed skid mounted canopy set.
