Superior Drilling and Blasting Goes with Selix and Sandvik
Selix Equipment is pleased to announce the delivery of two new Sandvik DC 700 surface top hammer drills to Superior Drilling and Blasting of Thunder bay Ontario.
It was in late spring 2013, that the owners of Superior Drilling and Blasting, Abrum Hamlyn and Ivan Bungay took delivery of the two drills. After intensive research on rough terrain non cab high production hydraulic drills, the decision was made to go ahead with the new DC 700 Sandvik drill model supplied by the Ontario Sandvik dealer Selix Equipment Inc. of Ottawa. With the power and versatility of the famous HL 710 drifter that can easily drill from the smaller T-38 string for a 2.5” hole or with a T-45 set up for the 3” application, but where you get the most production Ivan Bungay says, it is with the larger T-51 for the 3”, 5” to 4” hole size with unmatched production level and straight hole. The power of the Volvo T-4 engine, the maneuvrability and the stung chassis of the DC 700 makes it an ideal candidate for extreme terrain condition. Superior Drilling and Blasting has one of their unit set up with a remote operated manufactured installed winch to go where you can barely walk. The Sandvik DC 700 is equipped with an automatic rod handling system for 6 x 14’ rods plus a starter rod of 18’ for a maximum drill depth of 30.2 m.
