COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT, AND POWERFUL

The LX6 weighs only 6,500 kg (14,330 lb) and is less than 2 m wide providing excellent site accessibility. The heavy-duty mast design and two-speed drill head can deliver up to 6,000 NM (4,440 lb-ft) of torque. The pull back of the LX6 is 55 kN (12,364 lb), providing a powerful drilling solution in a small and lightweight footprint.

FLEXIBILITY

Fast and easy changes between wireline coring, DTH drilling, flush rotary and auger drilling, providing excellent flexibility from one drilling platform to another.

SAFETY

An intuitive control panel design, a safety cage with a sabotage-free hinge switch and multiple emergency shutdowns contribute to the inherent safety of the LX6.

MULTIPURPOSE DRILLING APPLICATIONS

The LX6 is capable of wireline and conventional coring, undisturbed sampling and testing, geological work, ground consolidation drilling, water well drilling, auger drilling, jet grouting, micropiling, soil nailing, and reverse circulation drilling.
