Sandvik pushes the boundaries with the Ranger DXi series
New Ranger DXi series pushes boundaries with several new high-performing features for improving the drilling process: 55 square meter drilling coverage equipped with new powerful rockdrill, Sandvik-style intelligence and high fuel efficiency make this drill rig the most powerful and efficient top hammer drill rig in its class. It represents a totally new generation of Ranger product family.
Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has worked with drilling solutions more than 50 years. Ranger DX top hammer drill rigs, with their counterweight revolving superstructure and ultimate stability, enable excellent drilling coverage. These features make Sandvik a pioneer in getting the job done, even in the most challenging conditions, with lowest production costs.
Take a bigger piece of the pie – Don’t settle for a slice
All of the Ranger DXi-series top hammer surface drill rigs feature a revolving superstructure. The new Ranger DX900i with 290-degree reach, enabling drilling coverage of 55 square meters, saves working time and minimizes the need to reposition the rig. Despite the rig’s ability to rotate, its counterweight structure ensures stability by maintaining weight opposite the boom. Ranger DXi rigs are extremely mobile, thanks to a low centre of gravity and high tramming power.
New innovations lead the way
Higher productivity is guaranteed with new features such as:
- 290-degree revolving upper structure
- new rockdrill family with 21-27 kW power
- Sandvik GT 60 tools enable higher productivity with straighter 92-127mm holes
- tackle difficult rock with well-known iTorque control system
Enjoy remarkable silence in iCab cabin
Operator ergonomics and low cabin noise have been focus areas in the development of this new iCab cabin. New user interface has been developed based on several customer trials. Positive feedback has been received on the good ergonomics, easy-to-use joysticks and control panels. The new cabin also features room for a trainer behind the operator seat. Thanks to a long and successful co-operation with VTT, Finnish Technical Research Centre, Sandvik has been able to lower the noise emission to levels never before seen in this type of drill rig.
