New Mobile Drill Rod Handler

Meet Plantman’s newest addition to our rental fleet of specialised equipment: the 8X4 CRANE TRUCK WITH DRILL ROD HANDLING ATTACHMENT.

This innovative and specialised piece of equipment is the safe and simple answer to hard rock open cut mining operations and blast hole drilling.

It promotes work area safety as the drill rod handling attachment is hand controlled and ensures rod control and installation to be hands free.

This system minimises a range of safety risks associated with the manual handling and manoeuvring of drill rods.

It also reduces down time by transporting the rod straight to the drill, and minimises drill rod changing times by allowing you to simply change the rods on the bench drill pattern and remove the rods at the same time.
