Drilling down

The Redbore 50X has been specifically designed for upreaming (blindhole or boxhole) while maintaining a low profile. It is also capable of completing conventional raises.

This innovative unit features a retractable wrenching arm, lay-down rod handler, and a drive system with greatly improved transfer of energy, requiring less power during operations.

Upream values are nominal, diameter and length are site-specific. Nominally, the Redbore 50X is capable of upreaming holes up to 1.8m in diameter, to lengths of up to 40m. The upream length is 50m. Electrical systems are built to suit regional requirements.

The maximum upream force is 1 335kN and the maximum downream force is 711kN. Values are calculated at 90% efficiency. The Redbore 50X also has a hydraulically operated upper rod wrench and deflectors are optional.
