Features | Specifications | Optional Equipment

CME-45C Feed SystemHydraulic feed and retract system provides 19,600 lbs. [8,891 kg] of retract force and 13,650 lbs. [6,192 kg] of down pressure.

The 68 inch [173 cm] stroke, hydraulic vertical drive system has no chains or cables which can stretch. It gives you precise control of force on the drilling tools.




CME-45C Drive LineRugged mechanical rotary drive with up to 4,815 foot pounds [6,528 Nm] of torque.

Several torque and rotation speeds combinations are available, including a high-speed rotary drive that gives you up to 700 rpm. The four speed transmission is connected to the drill engine through a heavy-duty clutch. With four forward gears and one reverse, there’s a rotation speed and torque combination available for just about any situation. The mechanical rotary drive also gives you a good feel for changes in soil and drilling conditions down the hole. It allows you to sense the need to adjust feed pressure and rotational torque. A torque limiting clutch, which is adjustable, provides protection against shock overload.

CME-45C Skid Control PanelControl logic – the key to operator productivity. 

All drilling and set-up controls are logically arranged on a control panel located at the driller’s station. A lock-out position for the clutch lever helps prevent accidental engagement.

Patented spindle brake stops rotation in an instant.

Our emergency spindle brake can stop rotation in less than a revolution. This system is activated by two conveniently located push button switches, as well as by strategically located multi-directional wobble switches. All switches are located on the drill and are not affected if the drill is removed from the carrier.
