The LR160 is CZM’s largest long reach drilling rig and it is mounted on a CAT 336 Next Gen. It has a specifically designed boom with 2 lift cylinders for higher torque and crowd force to be applied to the tool. This boom aligned with an interlocking kelly bar makes this machine efficient for drilling through rock and hard soil. Round friction bars are available for high production on softer soils. The long reach configuration is ideal for applications such as sound bearing walls, transmission lines, utilities, drilling on steep slopes, and difficult to reach holes. This drill rig has an extendable and longer undercarriage which makes a big difference in stability. The LR160 comes equipped with a service winch and CZM’s technology package which includes auto gear shifting, drill lock and auto crowd, auto level, return to center, telematics and other functions.
