TOTALLY HANDS-FREE ROD HANDLING

The LF350e and FREEDOM Loader combination provides hands-free rod handling. No intervention from the driller’s assistant is required to align and cycle the rods or connect a hoist plug when operating the loader. 

Optimal safety without compromising productivity

The FREEDOM Loader can cycle 6 meter rods in same amount of time as a manual cycle, which means enhanced safety is achieved without compromising productivity.

Electronic Controls

The LF350e drill rig is completely electronically controlled utilizing CAN bus and PLC devices. The patent-pending control panel features a 12” touch screen display for drilling information and mode selection.

Depth capacity

With up to 3,360 meters of NQ™ V-Wall™ capacity, the LF350e can meet the demands of the deepest diamond coring projects. Need a larger size core in a deep hole? The LF350e can deliver 3050 m of HQ core or 1800 m of PQ core using HRQ™ V-Wall™ and PHD V-Wall™ rods.
