LōDril Upgrades

Ask us about the following upgrades to your LōDril:

With three grades of kelly bar material to choose from, pick the best material for your budget and job
Increase your crowd force in hard drilling conditions and boost your production on tough drilling jobs
Upgrade to a larger kelly winch for maximum hoisting capability (available on most models)
Add a service winch to make tool changes quick and convenient
Add a reaction jack in combination with round, self-locking kelly bars to give your LōDril the ability to handle some of the toughest rock
Hear an alarm when you come close to live power lines
Maximize the size of the LōDril you can put on a smaller excavator. With a telescoping boom, work out further beyond the tracks, or closer in—or just increase your crowd force and flexibility over the hole
Easily remove the LōDril from the excavator to reduce weight for two piece transport
