Product description

The Diamec PHC 8 is the most powerful exploration rig of its size currently available. Like the rest of the Diamec range, it’s well suited to both surface and underground operations. The rig is equipped with a robust feed frame fitted with a direct-acting hydraulic telescopic cylinder. A chainless drive provides an equal push and pull force. This force enables an extended depth capacity for holes with a drill angle of greater than 45°, eliminating the need to re-pin the feed cylinder.
