In addition to this, the MR-A line presents drilling unit attachments of various weights for excavators, with the MR-C line featuring crawler units.
The CID500 mast which drills with 50% more push-pull force than before is suitable the heaviest crawler rig MR-C50, MR-C90 model as well as the MR-A 500’s excavator attachment, it is suitable for larger rotary heads and top hammers.
The new MR-C30 and MR-C35 models have been added to the MR-C line, and can drill in any direction due to their articulated arm. Once used, the slide can be detached from MR-C 35 and installed onto an excavator; an action that can be controlled by the crawler remote control.
Marini’s Sales Area Manager Mario Bozzola, said: “Back in March, we showcased the power of the CID500 slide at Switzerland’s biggest construction convention, Bau Maschinen Messe. This enabled us to demonstrate the increase in push-pull force power from 4 tons to 6 tons, which has been a popular customer request. We’re very excited to officially launch it to the market.”
