Features & Benefits

High-torque, low-speed Hagglunds hydraulic motors

Operates efficiently with high-torque, low-speed Hagglunds hydraulic motors powering the rotary and carriage drives so you can run full torque and full rotary rpm simultaneously.

Thrust box bearing-pack assembly

Reduces stress on the motor, because the thrust box bearing-pack assembly is designed to absorb the axial load caused by thrust and pullback.

Floating vise

Helps prevent rod wrap or windup because its floating vise allows the breakout system to clamp the full rod upsets during breakout of the lower and upper joints.

Higher torque

Muscles through difficult ground formations with higher torque than other models.
