COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT
The LF230 is one of the most compact drills in its class measuring approximately 37’ long x 12’ wide (11.28 m x 3.66 m). Its small footprint allows access in tight places.
The LF230 has the ability to drill through the most challenging conditions, featuring a powerful 275 hp Cummins® 8.3 L engine, a 4-speed rotation head with a 200 cc motor and intelligent hydraulic design.
Advanced safety features such as a rotation barrier, mainline winch tensioner, and wireline spooler ensures a driller’s safety.
The LF230 surface coring drill features a telescopic dump mast making it ideal for truck or crawler mounting to suit various site conditions.
The LF230 is ideal for both wireline coring and rotary drilling with tri-cone bits.
1. DUMP MAST
Lowers working height and relieves load on the mast, making for more efficient design.
2. ERGONOMIC OPERATOR PANEL
The electric over hydraulic system reduces operator fatigue, and lift-to-shift levers provide additional operator safety.
3. SIMPLE HYDRAULIC DESIGN
Direct-coupled hydraulic pumps with a PTO-driven auxiliary pump allow for easy maintenance.
4. ROTATION BARRIER
Interlocked rotation barrier slows rotation when barrier is open, providing additional operator safety. Mainline winch limiter and tensioner prevent over-winding and bird-nesting of the cable.
5. HYDRAULIC SWING-OUT HEAD
Lowers working height when handling inner tube.
Patented nitrogen gas spring jaws with hydraulic open/spring close function ensuring fail safe operation.
7. 9 M ROD-PULL
8. SMALL FOOTPRINT
The compact design, as compared to other machines in this class, allows for easy transportation and a smaller site footprint.
