The DX 700 (part of the DX product family) was introduced in 1996 and has excellent customer references. It is a well proven drill rig with more than 3.000 delivered rigs.

DX rig with its rotating superstructure and superior drilling coverage really does not have competition in demanding ground conditions.


Rotating superstructure and superior drilling coverage

  • Excellent stability and much bigger drilling coverage.
  • Better profitability due to excellent versatility in different applications.
  • Excellent balance due to superstructure and crosswise mounted engine at the rear.
  • Excellent visibility to drilling spot. The operator has always the drilling spot straight in front of him.
  • More holes / setup and during the shift.
  • Better productivity due to bigger drilling coverage, articulated boom and superstructure.
  • Better profitability due to lower fuel consumption and better faster penetration rate.


Wide range of drilling tool diameters and high compressor output

  • Wide hole size range. => T51 rods and higher air flushing volume ensure nice drilling and straight holes even for 115mm and 127mm hole size (DX800).
