The EK160USM drilling rig is a specialized machine designed by CZM for the drilled foundations of transmission lines. It has a special parallelogram, where the tilt cylinders face down, allowing it work under very low overhead (20ft). The rotary has a large inner passage which allows for the use of a robust 6 element kelly bar, drilling down to 65ft at full torque. It can be equipped with a self erecting counter weight for easy set up and brake down. The drill rig is equipped with CAT Vision Link that allows management to monitor machine operations and maintenance data online. Key features include auto gear shifting for rotary and main winch, drill lock, auto crowd, auto level, and return to center.
