Epiroc Pit Viper 291 single-pass rotary drill can drill 11- to 12 1/4-inch diameter holes with 85,000 pounds bit load capacity.
The drill rig offers 80,000 lb.-ft. of pulldown capacity; 35,000 lb.-ft. of pulldown force; and 11,000 lb.-ft. of torque.
Rig Control System (RCS) enables the drill to be configured with scalable automation features, including fully autonomous drilling. The RCS provides on-board automation capability with options like AutoDrill and AutoLevel or the optional BenchREMOTE package allowing an off-drill operator to run one or multiple units. The Pit Viper 291 is also capable of fully autonomous drilling with almost no human interaction with the drill for improved mine safety and productivity.
The deck layout provides access to all major service components. Ground level, fast fuel fill connections are standard, and optional ground level live sampling is available. Spool valves are also centrally located above the deck for accessibility.
