    DM30 II blasthole drill rig
    Built off the same platform as the proven DM45 and DML blasthole drill rigs, the newly enhanced Epiroc DM30 II is suitable for a variety of multi-pass rotary and down-the-hole (DTH) drilling applications. The compact yet heavy-duty design of the DM30 II delivers powerful performance and easy transport between benches or even between properties.

    A crawler-mounted, hydraulic tophead-drive rig, the DM30 II can achieve a clean hole depth of 28 feet for single-pass applications and up to 148 feet for multi-pass applications with a starter rod under the rotary head. It also features a 30-foot drill pipe change and a four-rod carousel. The DM30 II is now designed to handle 4- to 6½-inch drill pipes with a pulldown of up to 30,000 lbf and a hole diameter of 5½ to 7 7/8 inches.

    The mainframe and layout of the machine has been updated for 2020 to better assist customers needing a small-profile machine for tight drilling conditions or transit between sites. Reductions include: working width (to 14.16 feet); transport width with ladders and non-cab side jack removed (12.3 feet); and height, tower down (15.4 feet).

    Customers can choose a low- or high-pressure compressor to create the right configuration for their drilling operation. The DM Series drill rig can be equipped with on-board technology capabilities with the optional Epiroc Rig Control System (RCS) Lite for added safety and productivity.
