Sandvik Construction added a com‐ pletely new radio remote‐controlled drill rig to its surface top hammer drill rig offering. Engineered from its con‐ ception to combine all the best features in one unit – drilling performance with high hole quality, easy maintenance and excellent maneuverability, as well as at‐ tractive exterior – the Dino DC400Ri is ready to take the lead in surface drilling excellence. "Dino DC400Ri really is a drill rig that combines all the best features that re‐ sult from many years of engineering ex‐ perience gained in this business, all combined with what we have learnt from our customers," said Ilkka Lahdelma, product line manager – sur‐ face drilling, Sandvik Construction. Dino DC400Ri is a hydraulic, self‐pro‐ pelled, self‐contained, crawler based surface drilling unit with full radio re‐ mote control operation for 51–76 mm hole sizes. It offers top drilling perform‐ ance with a new RD414 rock drill, a ro‐ bust boom that has the largest coverage area of its size, a patented collaring guide and an economical Tier 4 Final engine. Due to its versatility the Dino DC400Ri is the perfect machine for drilling and blasting contractors, but suitable also for quarries and the municipal sector. Its typical applications consist of road construction, demolition works, sec‐ ondary breaking, foundation drilling and trenching. Representing the latest in technical en‐ gineering excellence, the Dino DC400Ri combines features that significantly im‐ prove drilling performance and hole quality. The new, extremely fast RD414 rock drill has been specially designed for the Dino DC400Ri. This provides smooth penetration, yet is kind to the rock tools, whilst a new patented collar‐ ing guide makes starting a hole easy and accurate even in inclined rock. The completely new boom, with a ro‐ bust design and the largest coverage area in its class, ensures perfect support for the feed during drilling, but also en‐ ables more drilling hours from one sin‐ gle setup. On top of this, the powerful tramming motors and low tramming height with its low center of gravity, as well as full radio control for the entire rig, ensure that the Dino DC400Ri will respond with precision even in the most uneven terrain. Dino DC400Ri comes equipped with the latest fuel‐saving systems. These con‐ sist of electric load sensing, ambient controlled cooler fans, a hydraulic com‐ pressor control system that utilizes the latest technology, optimized airlines and fuel‐efficient Tier 4 Final engine. All of these features combine to provide very low fuel consumption. Additionally easy maintenance through ground level service points, onboard diagnostics and small transportation dimensions, are benefits resulting from the completely new drill rig layout.
