The newest Navigator offers dual rod technology in a compact yet powerful machine that enables operators to confidently and efficiently manoeuvre through rock in congested cities, busy neighbours or tight jobsites.
Building on the dependability of the D23x30 S3, this rock drill offers a short and narrow footprint and quiet power for operator comfort while minimizing jobsite disturbance.
At just 55.5in (141cm) at its widest point, the D23x30DR S3 drill is 24.5in (62.2cm) narrower than its closest competitor. In addition, weighing in at 16,500lb (7484kg), the D23x30DR S3 is the lightest rock drill in its class. The low weight helps keep jobsites intact by decreasing potential disturbance to sidewalks, neighbourhoods and landscapes.
Common controls can help operators transition smoothly into rock drilling from a single rod machine, while new tooling options can offer precise steering and maximized wear life to help provide optimized jobsite productivity. With the two-degree bend positioned in the forward section of the tool, the new greaseable RH10 drill head offers responsive steer on command for precise installations.
The D23x30DR S3 rock drill delivers impressive power that can help you bore through challenging ground conditions and keep you rocking on a demanding jobsite. A 100hp (75kW) Deutz TCD3.6L4 engine provides a thrust/pullback of 24,000lb (106.8kN) combines with outer rod rotational torque of 3000ft-lb (4067.5Nm)
For improved operator comfort, the D23x30DR S3 has an operator ear noise level of 83dB(A), which helps with crew communication, and creates a quiet working environment helping to reduce disturbance to neighbourhoods and other populated urban areas.
