Soilmec has introduced a hydraulic drilling rig with a range of features for versatility and performance in drilling and foundation preparation while also ensuring operator comfort.

The SR-45 is built with high stress steel that has enabled Soilmec to achieve a more compact mast allowing a larger cab to be fitted for the comfort of the operator. Walkways, handrails and a camera system with LCD screen have also been designed with optimal operator safety in mind.

The rotary table of the rig is compact with a flat shape to the case which helps reduce the machine’s weight. The rig features a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine which has proved its reliability with Soilmec’s SR-30 rig. The engine meets EU Stage IV and US Tier IV Final emissions regulations. A feature of the SR-45 is that can be transported complete with Kelly bar to save set up time – a particular advantage for the type of short-term projects that a medium-sized rig like the SR-45 will typically be used for.

The SR-45 offers high performance for traditional bored piles, but can also be reconfigured for other drilling technologies such as continuous flight auger piles, full displacement piles and consolidated treatments with Turbojet – the company’s combined mechanical mixing and jet grouting technology.

The SR-45 is already in use on sites in Italy, France, North America and Mexico.
