Automatic SPT hammer†
The CME-140 pound (63.5 kg) automatic hammer gives you extremely consistent and accurate Standard Penetration Test results, meeting all ASTM-D-1586-84 requirements. That’s because there are no ropes or cables to impede the free fall of the weight. The hammer swings from stored position to on-hole position. Since raising and lowering is done hydraulically, set up is quick and almost effortless. For maximum safety, all moving parts are enclosed, including the impact area between the weight and the anvil. Other hammer sizes are available including 170 pound (77.1 kg), 300 pound (136.1 kg), and 340 pound (154.2 kg).
Hydraulic rod holder and breakout wrench†
The hydraulic rod holder and breakout system makes your job quicker and safer. It eliminates the need for a pipe wrench and a cheater bar to break tight connections. It’s also perfect for suspending tools in the hole while adding or pulling rods. The system not only pivots from on-hole to off-hole positions, but also hydraulically moves in and out. Systems and jaw sizes available up to 6 5/8 inch (16.83 cm) diameter. Adjustable height is also available.
Slide bases make the job easier and quicker
Slide base options are available for both in-out and sideways movement of the drill on the platform. An 18 inch (46cm) in-out movement allows you to quickly move the drill off the bore hole and align the sheaves for lifting tools with the cathead or any of the hoists. A 16 inch (41cm) sideways movement gives you even more versatility. Aligning the augers or rods when making connections is easy, or if the bit drifts off at an angle when starting a hole, you can quickly straighten it to a vertical position. Since the upright and optional mast are mounted directly to the drill frame, they move with the drill when the slide base is used.
Cone Penetrometer Testing (CPT)
CPT controls allow you to easily switch from typical geotechnical drilling and sampling procedures to pushing a cone. A dedicated hydraulic circuit including detented CPT control lever, hydraulic down feed pressure and CPT feed rate controls provide precise pressure and penetration adjustments required to meet ASTM standards. A separate CPT system hydraulic pressure gauge is provided as well. Anchor points are installed below the drill feed frame so that maximum available pressure can be applied to the CPT tools. A 12-volt power source can be provided at the drill control panel to accommodate electronic devices associated with CPT procedures. Mounting for depth transducers or other related equipment can also be provided.
