Small and compact

Despite its small and compact exterior, even allowing for helicopter transport, the Boyles C5 provides the torque and RPM necessary for BO–PO size coring, making it the most powerful rig in its class.

Designed for sturdiness and operation in harsh environments

Boyles C5 just goes on and on without interruption, minimizing service requirements.

Safety in mind

The rig is designed with safety in mind, minimizing the risk of personal injury during operation.

Product description

The Boyles C5/C5C surface core drilling rig is compact, yet powerful. Its compact design makes it easy to position and transport, even by helicopter. During helicopter transport, the rig is broken down into six main modules and each module is equipped with lifting points to ensure safe and effective transport. A sturdy and robust design enables continuous operation in remote locations and harsh operating environments. All drilling functions are performed, using the ergonomic and user-friendly control panel which also displays all the drilling parameters necessary to ensure productive drilling. The rig is equipped with the Durahead 2-gear drive rotation unit that provides the necessary torque and rpm speed ranges for coring, with a drilling depth capacity of 800 m when drilling N size holes.
