Epiroc DM-M3 rotary blasthole drilling rig

Product description

Designed with deep overburden drilling in mind, the robust DM-M3 rotary blasthole drill rig is built to deliver unsurpassed availability and utilization for cast blasting in large coal mines. The Epiroc DM-M3 has been proven in some of the toughest mining conditions. With drills that have logged over 100,000 hours of service, it’s easy to see why some of the largest coal mines in the world call upon the DM-M3 to do the job. 


DM-M3 units have drilled millions of meters in coal overburden, but that’s not all it can do. These rigs are also well suited for punching holes in hard rock, day in and day out.
