Introducing ECMining FRD HCR1500 ED Series II

Kansanshi Drilling Project


Our Furukawa Rock Drill HCR1500 ED Series II is the perfect drill for quarries or construction sites. The HCR is compact with superb efficiency, hard rock capabilities for the mining and solid drilling domain.

Ultimately HRC1500 ED Series II is just Simple, Durable and Efficient. The Low-emission Caterpillar® C9 Tier III engines offer low fuel consumption, higher horsepower and meet Zambian exhaust emissions regulations. Increased fuel tank capacity provides more operating hours before refueling.

This means the HCR1500 ED Series II we are currently supplying competes for more workload including several more hours of nonstop operations for greater mineral output.

And as such our recent project Kansanshi Drilling over in North Western province of Zambia ensures the Kansanshi mine is equipped with the best of the machinery for rock hard drilling workload.
