The LS600 features a pneumatic isolation system inside the head, preventing resonant energy from transmitting to the drill rig. This directs the maximum amount of energy down the drill string to the face of the bit for improved penetration rates.
ADVANCED ROD AND CASING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The LS600 utilizes a fingerboard for rod storage, a patented spring-loaded clam shell for safe rod management, a 90 ̊ head tilt for easy tripping and a full support vehicle equipped with a gantry crane for presenting rods to the head.
The LS600 drills through and samples overburden and soft rock formations at or near 100% core recovery without the risk of refusal and without the use of fluids. In addition to producing a relatively undisturbed sample, the LS600 drills with as little as one percent deviation to depth enabling the driller to pinpoint exact sampling locations.
A turbocharged 6.6 liter CAT® engine with 228 horsepower fuels the LS600, allowing drillers to reach depths of up to 600 feet.

DRILL ROD AND CASING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The LS™600 features a finger board for vertical storage of rods next to the mast, a patented spring-loaded clam shell for safe rod management to and from the finger board, a 90 degree head tilt for tripping of rods/casing and a full support vehicle system with a Gantry crane for presenting rods to the head. This advanced management system improves driller’s productivity and safety.
SIMPLE HYDRAULIC DESIGN
The manual hydraulic system is easy to operate and maintain.
INTERLOCKED ROTATION BARRIER
Interlocked rotation barrier slows rotation when the barrier is open, providing additional operator safety.
Low ground pressure rubber tracks avoid damage to asphalt and unstable ground.
GREASE PISTON PRE-LOAD SYSTEM
The grease piston system maintains bearing pre-load with grease pressure. In the event of lost grease pressure, the head automatically shuts down to avoid damage.
ROBUST ROTATION AND OSCILLATION ASSEMBLIES
The LS600’s rotation and oscillation assemblies are created using premium materials and advanced designs to improve life and performance.
