Our X1550 is capable of both Diamond Core and RC Drilling. This fuel efficient lightweight and very quiet Drill Rig comes packed with many Heavy Duty features as well as EH&S considerations. This Rig also comes standard with a Mast and Drillers platform, Safety rails, walkways, ladders and a Rod Spin cage. The acoustic pack keeps operating noise at acceptable levels at the same time keeping operating temperatures consistent.
