Australian drilling fleet put to the test in remote mining application
September 10, 2018
Earlier this year Atlas Copco Rental Oceania expanded its fleet by acquiring four DrillAir Y1260s, portable and versatile air compressors designed specifically for drilling applications. Recently, Egan Drilling put this fleet to the test in a demanding application at a Lithium mine in remote Western Australia.
The Atlas Copco XRYS 1260 still had the price tag on it when we picked it up. We strapped the unit down to our 8x8 and off it went up to the Pilbara. The unit didn’t miss a beat over the entire length of the project. Purred like a kitten 24 hours a day in the hot and dusty climate of the North West. Very easy to adjust pressures and various other settings. We have already put dibs on it for our next drill program!
