New Ranger DXi series – take a bigger piece of the pie

New Ranger DXi series pushes boundaries with several new superior features for improving the drilling process: a 592 square foot (55 square meters) drilling coverage area equipped with the most powerful new rockdrill. Sandvik-style intelligence and highest fuel efficiency makes this drill rig the most powerful and efficient top hammer drill rig in its class. It represents a totally new revolutionary generation of the Ranger product family.

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology has worked with drilling solutions for more than 50 years. The Ranger DX top hammer drill rigs with 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.

All the Ranger DXi-series top hammer surface drill rigs feature a revolving superstructure. The new Ranger DX900i with 290-degree reach 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 center of gravity and high tramming power.

New innovations lead the way
Higher productivity is guaranteed with all the new features, such as:
• 290 degrees revolving upper structure
• New rockdrill family with 21-27 kW
• Sandvik GT 60 tools enable higher productivity with straighter 92-127mm holes
• Beat difficult rock with well-known iTorque control system

Enjoy remarkable silence in the iCab cabin
Operator ergonomics and low cabin noise have been the focus areas in developing this new iCab cabin. New user interface has been developed based on experience of several customer trials. Positive feedback has been received from good ergonomics and easy to use joysticks and control panels. In the new cabin, there is also room for a trainer behind the operator seat. Thanks to long and successful co-operation with VTT, Finnish Technical Research Center, Sandvik has been able to lower the noise emission into the level never seen before in this type of drill rig.
