The R500 is the most compact reclaimer Vermeer offers and is available as a skid and trailer version. With a relatively low weight of 2500kg (5511lb) and a height-adjustable hitch, the R500 can be towed by a van or truck. The four heavy-duty pulldown jacks for stabilisation will help for quick and convenient setup of the reclaimer.
Among the HDD options there is the Vermeer D40x55DR S3 horizontal directional drill, which delivers excellent productivity in a broad range of ground conditions from hard, medium and soft rock to loamy dirt and clay. This rock drill features dual rod technology that uses an inner rod to provide torque to the drill bit, while the outer rod offers steering capability and rotational torque for reaming. The combination provides powerful downhole cutting action and the flexibility to select the appropriate tooling to best match the ground conditions, which can allow the entire install to be completed with one machine.
A second HDD model on display at bauma is Vermeer's D120E. The D120E HDD is entirely electric, allowing users to minimise maintenance, jobsite noise and environmental impact. The shipping container's small footprint allows for mobility all across the world. It is designed and built in Europe, with the same quality of components you expect from Vermeer.
Completing the line of machinery relevant to the drilling sector is the Vermeer MX300D mix system. This new diesel-powered system provides the fluid onsite to keep the drilling going smoothly. With one power unit to support two tanks, operators have the option to run one tank or both, depending on the fluid needs of the job. The MX300D mixing system pairs well with a variety of drills and is ready to mix.
