When drilling in poor ground condition, rock may fall, roll on the boom structure down to the operator’s compartment . Consequences could be fatal injuries for the operator and severe damages for the unit.
In order to strongly mitigate this risk, Sandvik has designed a specific Canopy Safety Grill for Tunneling Drills.
The safety grill is mounted on the canopy to protect the front of the operator compartment from rock falls and projections. The grill design allows to keep the canopy variable height function.
