Ready, set… drill!

Fast and powerful, the strength of the HPM180 range is in its power and stability coupled with incredible speed in moving from site to site without assembly and disassembly steps during transport. Our customers’ favourite machine for work on power lines and substations.


Ready, set… drill!

Designed for the powerlines and substation jobs, it fits a 1800mm tool along the mast and different types of kelly bar ensure different drilling depth.
HPM180 is mounted on a CAT 330 base, equipped with a CAT C7.1 engine.
The range of HPM180 has been studied to provide the clients with a fast and powerful rig that can move quickly and without assembly and disassembly phases during transport. The HPM180 can be transport in one load and can be set up in no time.

Different options are available to meet different needs like high rotary torque, increased crowd pull, expandable undercarriage and more.

Counterweight Lifting System

This HPM can be assembled by itself without the need of assistant cranes.

This patented feature gives contractors the ability to quickly and easily reduce the overall weight of the rig during the transport phase, making it possible to utilise a standard-sized trailer and reduce then hauling costs and avoids oversize/overweight permits.

Long Mast Configuration

By adding mast extension and longer kelly bar, this machine can be quickly converted into a standard height machine, allowing it to perform greater depths and be used for different drilling applications, such as CFA, soil mixing, Displacement, etc.

Comfort Cabin

The HPM cabin is equipped with a comfy and wide adjustable seat. The standard automatic air conditioning keeps the cabin at the ideal temperature throughout the day.

All machine interfaces are ergonomically positioned and designed for optimum control and efficiency. The easy accessible keyboards allow the operator to quickly get the rig ready to drill.

Automatic Functions

Automatic functions allow the operator to reduce rig-up time and get the most in productivity.
With a push of a button, the operator can make use of automatic functions, including: Verticality of the mast, Automatic Rig-up, Automatic return to drilling point and rotary auto drive.

Drilling Cruise Control

The HPM software includes the enabling of the drilling cruise control. When the system is enabled, the operator can preselect the rotary gear so it’s speed. With a push of a button the system can be activated and the operator can also lock the crowd pressure for a complete automatic drilling mode. Safety systems can disable the function immediately.

Remote Control

Increase safety and flexibility when loading or unloading the equipment. The operator can make use of different viewing angles while moving the machine from outside the cabin. Having a complete view of the rig during these phases allows the operator to make sure that hoses, wirings and wire ropes are safely positioned. Drilling functions are enabled through the remote control for a safe service and maintenance of the rig.
