HCR1500 Series II
The HCR1500 ED Series II is the perfect drill for quarries or construction sites. Simple, durable and efficient, the HCR1500 ED Series II with extendable boom incorporates a self-adjusting drill system that ensures high productivity no matter what the drilling situation. Low-emission Caterpillar® C9 Tier III engines offer low fuel consumption, higher horsepower and meet U.S. exhaust emissions regulations. Increased fuel tank capacity provides more operating hours before refueling.
When it comes to ergonomically-friendly cabs, Furukawa offers various options to minimize operator fatigue. Cabs are 51 inches (1,300 mm) with ROPS/FOPS. In addition, all cabs are air-conditioned and continuously pressurized with filtered air to maintain a comfortable operating environment. Other features include:
- Single-lever drilling control for easy operation.
- 120-degree swiveling seat adjustable for legroom, back angle, height and operator weight provides maximum visibility.
- Large windows maximize operator visibility.
- High-visibility gauges allow operator to monitor machine functions while remaining focused on the drilling.
- Walk-around ground level maintenance provides fast, easy upkeep or repair.
- Rubber-mounted engine frame isolates cab from engine vibrations.
- Low-emission engines offer low fuel consumption and meets US exhaust emissions regulations.
- High-output compressor increases flushing air, provides faster drilling and decreases bit wear.
- HCR1500 ED features 12' rods with extendable boom for increased drill pattern, while the HCR1500 D20 has a fixed boom with 20' rods for deeper drilling opportunity.
- Reliable dust control system increases suction capacity and provides effective pre-cleaner to reduce escape of drilling dust. An optional dust suppression system is available for difficult drilling conditions.
- Heavy-duty Furukawa undercarriage featuring a pentagonal section design to reduce dirt build-up and track wear ensures strength and durability.
- Advanced rotary rod changer allows easy drill rod changes. Operators can add and remove rods using a single lever. Rods can also be indexed in the rack to distribute wear evenly and reduce costs.
- Angle indicator for quick and easy drilling alignment.
