Introducing Sandvik’s Ranger DX900i to the Canadian Market

Selix Equipment Inc. along with Sandvik, officially launched the Ranger DX900i model to the Canadian market at Expo Grands Travaux, held in Montreal, Quebec, April 27-28. The new Ranger DX900i with 290° reach, enabling drilling coverage of 55 m2, saves working time and minimizes the need to reposition the rig. Despite the rig’s ability to rotate, its counterweight structure ensures stability by maintaining weight opposite the boom. Ranger DXi rigs are extremely mobile, thanks to a low center of gravity and high tramming power.

“Visitors at Expo Grands Travaux had the opportunity to check out the revolutionary generation of Ranger DXi top hammer surface drill rigs with the most powerful rock drill in its class. They also had the opportunity to try the brand new DXi simulator,” said Mario Roussel, general manager of Selix.

Operator ergonomics and low cabin noise have been focus areas in the development of the new iCab cabin. The new user interface has been developed based on several customer trials. Positive feedback has been received on the good ergonomics, easy-to-use joysticks, and control panels. The new cabin also features room for a trainer behind the operator seat. Thanks to a long and successful co-operation with VTT, Finnish Technical Research Center, Sandvik has been able to lower the noise emission to levels never before seen in this type of drill rig.

Selix Equipment Inc., an Equipment Sales & Service Limited company, is a successful distributor of drilling and foundation equipment. Selix represents a number of major product lines including Sandvik, Soilmec, GEAX, TEI Rock Drills, HEMCO and ICE.
