The LD5000 is a reverse circulation drilling rig designed to operate in virtually any soil or rock type. It enables the creation of sockets of up to 5000mm in its standard and 8000mm dia. in its under-reaming configuration.
The LD5000 is comprised of 4 main sections: gripper, drill base, mast and carriage, and power swivel. The gripper allows connection to the pre-installed pile or conductor with sufficient capacity to accommodate the static and dynamic forces the drill rig can generate.
The power swivel provides the rotation force required to drill the socket. Thrust and holdback are provided by two pairs of carriage rams located in the drill mast supporting the carriage.
The LD5000 is our largest, most powerful reverse circulation drilling rig to date and one of the largest available in the world..
