thrust/pullback and 4500 ft.lb. of rotary
torque, while the compact DD2024
drill has 20,000 lb. of pullback force
and 2400 ft.lb. of rotary torque. The
DD2024 has a footprint of 52 in. wide,
207 in. long, and a height of 74 in.
The DD4045 drill comes with 52
pieces of 10 ft., one-piece forged drill
pipe to maximize productivity in a
variety of bore conditions, said the
company. The pipe basket is removable to make changing or adding pipe
for longer bores more efficient.
The DD4045 incorporates a Cummins
QSB4.5 turbocharged diesel engine
rated 160 hp while the DD2024 is
powered by a Cummins B3.3 turbocharged diesel engine rated 74 hp.
The engines are Tier 4 interim certified, Toro said.
“The drills were already well-
designed products,” Hager said. “The
most significant work we did was to
transition them from Tier 3 to Tier
4 emissions products, which meant
making significant changes to the
The rack and pinion undercarriage
design spreads the load evenly for
smooth and stable travel, said the com-
pany, and the undercarriage gear track
is welded to the frame for durability.
The two-speed floating carriage on the
DD4045 travels up to 150 fpm, which
helps to reduce operator cycle time.
The reverse design of the dual rear
outriggers helps ensure stability during pullback, said the company, and
can be independently adjusted.
Both drills are propelled by front-mounted track-drive motors from
Danfoss, with planetary gear reduction to provide traction in all types of
ground conditions, the company said.
Each is equipped with a multifunc-tion color LCD display that gives a
view of machine performance and
functions. A Danfoss Plus+ 1 controller keeps it all in check. For hard rock-drilling applications, an air hammer
can be controlled from the display,
as well. Single- or dual-stick controls
can be used while drilling, and operators can choose to use a cruise control function when back-reaming to
reduce operator fatigue and improve
productivity, said the company. Both
models have a Zap Alert system to
notify the operator in the event of an
electric line strike. dp
