The RDX5 rock drill is a robust replacement for the established HLX5 rock drill model in Sandvik's drilling equipment range, which has a heritage and longstanding reputation for being a reliable rock drill. The RDX5 is designed to honour its predecessor by exceeding that well-known reliability.

The RDX5 has a significantly increased minimum service interval than the previous HLX5 model. Its design follows that of the HLX5, with a minimal number of moving parts and pressurized seams. Innovations have been made to several components, such as the flushing head, the gear housing and body cylinder, to deliver a completely new level of durability for internal items. The RDX5 also has a new percussion package and patented piston design which enables improved energy efficiency.

Designed for face and long-hole drilling, as well as rock bolting, the RDX5 rock drill is completely interchangeable with HLX5 in all applications where used.

The RDX5 rock drill is now available as an option for new Sandvik equipment and to replace existing HLX5 through local Sandvik Parts & Services.
