The Apafor® 570 is a powerful and robust drilling machine that can work in the most difficult conditions, whether it is in the heat of a tropical country or in the cold.

Thanks to its versatility, this drilling machine can operate in conventional coring, wireline coring, auger drilling and destructive drilling of all types (rotary, down-the-hole hammer and optional off-hole hammer). Drilling can be done vertically or inclined.

The Apafor® drilling machine is available in 2 versions: the tracked version is still the most popular, but the truck mounted version is a good alternative to facilitate logistics and offer a large storage capacity (the usual truck makes are MAN and Iveco, but other makes can be considered). The truck mounted version has a hydraulically lowered tool tray and an assisted manipulator arm, a multitude of tools, rods and tubes can be handled safely and effortlessly by one operator.

It is the ideal drill rig for deep geotechnical projects, limited diameter water drilling and mining.

The range of torques and high speeds can be controlled through a complete and intuitive control panel, to ensure all your drilling and coring operations. Different rotation heads can be offered if the activity is more focused on core drilling (High Speed Head) or on auger or rotary drilling (High Torque Head), although the standard rotation head offers an excellent torque and speed ratio to successfully implement the different drilling methods.

Available in single or rotary-percussive versions with a wide range of options, the Apafor® 570 can be configured to your needs.

The Apafor® 570 is available with a DEUTZ 75 HP diesel engine.
