HammerHead Trenchless Equipment, a Charles Machine Works company, has introduced the new HammerHead Roughneck R200, the first 2-in. rock hammer engineered specifically for horizontal directional drilling applications. The R200, the smallest pneumatic rock hammer of HammerHead’s Roughneck line, is designed to expand the capabilities of small utility drills, allowing 7000-lb. to 10,000-lb. class directional drills to effectively drill through solid rock as well as other difficult soil conditions.
The R200 rock hammer was made to be the most efficient system available to HDD contractors in communications, gas, electrical and water service installations. The R200 model drills a 3.125-in. pilot hole.
