Single pass and multi pass capability

12 m (40 ft) single pass and 73 m (195 ft) multi pass

Electronic Air Regulation System (EARS) is standard

EARS allows you to easily adjust your compressor to save horsepower and fuel consumption

Rig Control System (RCS) is standard

The PV-275 comes standard with automation features through the RCS platform

Look to the Pit Viper series of drills if technology, productivity, and high asset life for the lowest total cost of ownership are on your list of priorities.

• The PV-275 features a patented cable feed system with automatic tensioning for improved component life and low total cost of operation

• Options for both diesel and electric power plants make the PV-275 a flexible option for any type of operation.

• The tower is a “live tower” design meaning it can be raised and lowered with a full carousel and the rotary head at the top of the tower – further testament to the structural design of the tower.

• The optional Atlas Copco patented hydraulic wet clutch removes the load of the compressor during non-drilling functions and decreases fuel consumption and TCO

• The standard Rig Control System (RCS) provides on board automation capability as part of the standard drill package to help deliver safety and productivity. With RCS you can run automation with an operator on board with options like auto drill and auto level or you can run with the operator off the drill with the optional BenchREMOTE package allowing one operator to run one or multiple units. With the RCS system on Pit Vipers you can even achieve your ambition of fully autonomous drilling with almost no human interaction with the drill.
