New Products Available at Selix
Selix Equipment Inc. and MC Drill are pleased to announce the launch of two new MDT drill rigs. First is the new compact but yet very powerful MDT60B drill rig. This unit was developed especially for heavy site work that requires exceptional manoeuvrability and productivity. This rig will drill anything from micro piles, tie rods or even jet grouting applications. The drill can be used with DTH configuration or drill with rotary head featuring unmatched performance in all applications due to its very powerful 102 HP engine. Like all MDT drill rigs the unit comes with radio remote control for all functions but also includes a cable remote as standard equipment. A multitude of options can be added to the rig to match any work conditions.
The second new rig, the largest in its class, is the 34,000KG MDT300V drill rig especially designed for micro piles. This unit has a 10.4 meter stroke or, with the mast extension, we can obtain a maximum of 16 meters of stroke which is extremely efficient in large anchor or pile installation applications. This drill rig features a turntable design for maximum maneuverability and safety and stability is achieved with an extendable track frame to make it one of the most secure rigs for this type of work. This impressive 300V will maximize your productivity with a many technological design advantages unmatched by any other manufacturer. For JET GROUTING applications, the extended mast set up will attain a maximum of 34 meters of stroke in a single pass thus making it extremely productive and safe again due to its design.
Selix at the National Heavy Equipment Show
Selix was at booth 5008 at the National Heavy Equipment Show at the International Centre in Toronto, Ontario on April 18-19, 2013. We featured our MC Drill MDT 60B multipurpose drill set up for rock drilling with a rotary head and a Sandvik RH550 DTH hammer. Many visitors donated to Make-A-Wish Canada while having some fun trying out the Sandvik DP1500i rock drill operator’s simulator. Thanks to all our friends in the drilling industry for dropping by our booth and saying hello.
