With 40,000 pounds of pullback and 30,000 pounds of pulldown, the Diamondback multipurpose drill rig can be configured to meet user needs. Built with a modular design, the rig’s bolt-on components eliminate the need for special kits, makeshift fabrications, or the acquisition of a second rig, Atlas Copco says.
The rig is mounted on a 600-horsepower Peterbilt truck, and drilling operations are powered by a a PTO. An optional deck engine module accommodates the use of a separate engine for drilling. The drill can be used at angles from 90 degrees vertical to 45 degrees inclined.
End-users can specify air and mud package, rod carousel or box, automated rod handling systems (or none), rotary head type, spindle size, 34- or 38-foot tubular tower, and carrier-mounted or tower-mounted table. Two tables are available, offering either a 24-inch opening or 17-inch opening.
The driller’s console pivots for visibility of any operation taking place, even with the head slid to the right side for running casing, the company says.
