Power and Versatility
The LX4 features a powerful Deutz D914 L04 air cooled diesel engine that produces 53 kW (71 hp) of power at 2,300rpm. The LX4 also has a maximum breaking torque of 20.5 kNm (15,120 lb-ft) and 55 kN (12,364 lbf) of pull back force.
The LX4 is capable of both wireline and conventional coring as well as down the hole, rotary and auger drilling methods. This multipurpose rig was specifically designed to be extremely versatile with its powerful steel crawlers, mast dump/raising ability and 220 mm double clamps.
The LX4 comes loaded with standard safety features. The safety cage ensures drillers remain a safe distance from the drill string, while low speed and low torque rotation ensures safe rod management. The steel crawlers coupled with the LX4's upright stability make this machine extremely stable on uneven formations.
