3300 DRILL


The 3300 Drill is the next step up from the versatile 2100 machine.  Built for those locations where a compact machine is still required but more power is needed for deeper drilling.  Originally manufactured as a truck mounted machine the 3300 Drill  can be fitted to a range of carriers including the truck, 4×4 agricultural tractor, tracks or modular skid mounted for helicopter or barge work.

Similar to all the drills in the 101 range, depending on the options fitted, can be used with a range of down the hole (DTH) drilling systems for:

Solid and hollow auger

Diamond drilling

Rotary air blast (RAB)

Mud circulation

Reverse circulation (RC)

Changing between the different types of drilling procedures is a simple and quick operation.

The multipurpose 3300 Drill has a wide range of applications including but not limited to:

  1. Geotechnical sampling: using augers, conventional coring (NMLC) wireline coring or wash boring to obtain samples. While still compact in design, extra power gives the drill the ability to do deeper holes. The stronger tower and winch extension make it a perfect machine for SPT testing.
  2. Environmental sampling: an ideal machine for taking the deeper or larger diameter samples, the small size coupled with the power available, allow a large range of sampling to be done with one machine, while keeping the disturbance to the area surrounding the hole to a minimum. This drill is a practical machine for setting the wide range of down the hole testing equipment.
  3. Mineral exploration: the versatile nature of the 2100 makes the drill an economical multipurpose machine for mineral sampling. With simple changes to the configuration, the machine can quickly be set up for diamond drilling, RAB or RC. With the 3-meter stroke, many of our clients have found this machine to be perfect for Air Core type drilling.  The 100mm hollow spindle allows a wide range of drilling tools to be fitted to the drill head.  One model configuration of the drill has been designed to be run from the PTO of the carrier, giving the drill compact mobility.  Because of the harsh nature of the terrain encountered in the mineral exploration, the 3300 Drill has been mounted on a diverse range of carriers including, trucks, tractors, tracks, trailer, barge and helicopter modules.
  4. Water wells: By fitting the 101 side entry swivel under the head or a large diameter fluid swivel on to the head wash pipe, larger fluid volumes are able to be pumped down the hole without significant pressure drop. The increased power and only slightly larger foot print than the 2100 make the 3300 Drill well suited for applications where there are still access problems and the least possible disturbance to the drill site is required, but deeper holes or larger diameter are necessary.


With the standard options available, the 3300 Drill can be customised to suit your particular application and carrier requirements.
