The T455WS is a maneuverable and compact truck-mounted drill rig having a large volume and high-pressure air compressor. Hydraulic and air systems receive power from a deck-mounted diesel engine. The T455WS can be stably mounted on the Schramm tracked drill carrier, standard trucks, trailers, and special purpose vehicles of other manufactures due to its drill rig subframe design. Efficient pipe handling and rugged top head drive rotation result in high productivity.
The T455W is suitable for monitoring wells, blast-holes, drilling wells, mineral exploration, and geothermal bores with down-the-hole hammer and mud rotary techniques which are generally required for deep drilling applications.
