The CZM EK160 is a cylinder crowd drilling rig mounted on a CAT 330 Next Gen base. It is CZM’s most popular model and can be easily converted from long mast to short mast. It is the most powerful completely self-erecting one-load machine on the market featuring cost-effective transportation and setup. The hydraulic functions in the cabin and positioning of the hydraulic cylinders allow the kelly bar to follow the raising and lowering of the mast. Hydraulic extendable crawlers, additional counterweight, and a mast manufactured with “Weldox” steel (light weight – high yield strength) give the EK160 excellent stability. Other features include automatic gear shifting between 3 operating speeds for seamless operation and high production plus automatic down the hole winch stop. The drill is equipped with CAT Vision Link to monitor the machine remotely.
