Epiroc reported the new Boomer M20 is the world’s first face drill rig with internal hydraulics. The unit is designed and built to minimize unplanned stops and to maximize uptime and performance in demanding operations, the company reported.

The rig features a heavy-duty hose-less design that reduces the need for hose repairs. On-board automation features, teleremote capabilities, and the ability to accommodate digital drill plans allow the unit to offer higher reliability, precision, performance and quality, the company reported.

The rig comes with a battery-electric driveline option, which offers savings on safety, maintenance, ventilation and cooling.

The Boomer M20 is perfect for miners and contractors that want to out-drill the competition through innovation, Epiroc said.
