Dando's Mintec 18 was seen as the ideal machine for the customer's drilling operations due to the ability to conduct multiple drilling methods from a single unit. It features a powerful high-speed, high-torque rotary head (1,000rpm, 10,000Nm) that can be used to carry out various drilling methods to great depths including wireline coring, RC and even water well drilling.

While this version of the Dando Mintec 18 is crawler mounted to allow it to traverse rough, muddy terrain, it can also be supplied on a 6 x 6 for quick mobilisation between sites of long distance.

Features on the Mintec 18 include: 18,000kgf pullback, mast dump for angle drilling, head tilt for loading roads and hydraulic side shift for tripping out of the hole
