micropile drilling



Rock drilling machine, microfile


The microfile is not actually a drill but a hammer that crushes the rock, crumbles it, and throws the crushed rock chips up to the ground.


The microfile is built on top of a bugger with the buzzer, turret, operator compartment and part of the hydraulic system being original from the bugger maker.


The system has 2 stabilizing legs operated by pistons and two stabilizing pistons.


The bagger arm is cut and a pillar is welded to it, inside which a cart driven by the hydraulic piston and chains travels.


At the top of the cart is a rotating hydraulic motor drilled rod with a hydraulically rotating air hammer at the bottom.


When the entire drilling rod is in the ground (about 11 meters), the motor at the top of the cart detaches from it, and the cart rises to the top of the column.


A cartridge with another drill rod is inserted between the motor and the drill rod located in the ground, the motor connects to the drill rod and both connect to the bottom rod. An additional 11 meters can now be drilled
