Montabert is to introduce a new hydraulic drifter, the HC28, which has a 10kW output, and which is the company’s latest model.
The company, which says it introduced the hydraulic rock drill in 1970, points to the HC28’s compact and robust design, which allows the HC28 to drill holes from 32-64mm for surface or underground jobs, and for standard drilling or anchoring.
Montabert says that the HC28 has been designed to be quickly and easily mounted on any type of carrier, without having to perform heavy adaptations or special fittings on the machine.
Maintenance operations have also been set to be simple and ergonomic to minimise downtime and costs, while by transmitting energy in an optimal way, rods, bits and shanks lifespans are said to be maximised. Because the HC28 front guide is much less stressed, mainly regarding temperature increases, the HC28 has low lubricant consumptions.
