Drill Services

Prime Explosives’ customers benefit from a one-stop shop operation now offering Drill & Blast services as well as a full range of products, trucks and experienced staff for onsite services. We have two Drill Rigs available in the North Island and one Drill Rig available in the South Island. Plus an experienced crew of drillers, that will work with you to ascertain the best solution for your individual needs.

Our fleet of Drill Rigs consists of:

Sandvik DP1500i Surface Top Hammer Drill

Located in the South Island, the Sandvik DP1500i is an intelligent, self-propelled, self-contained, crawler based surface drilling rig equipped with a cabin as well as a rod changer. With practical intelligence it fits perfectly for production drilling. Either in large quarries or open pit mines as well as construction work-sites.

Fully equipped, the new generation rig helps us give better service. The rig does this by producing information on the condition of the drill, as well as the work performed. This helps us to monitor progress at every step. Clever drilling parameter set up, an advanced ROPS/FOPS certified safety cabin, excellent visibility as well as step by step trouble shooting instructions mean our guys are able to spend more quality time providing drill and blast services.

DPi series technical solutions help Prime Explosives respect the environment by consuming up to 15% less fuel.
