Safety, ergonomics and high productivity were priorities in designing the Boomer XL3 D Three-boom hydraulic tunnelling rigs. They are intended for users who prefer a traditional direct control system.

Available from Atlas Copco Compressors Australia , the Boomer XL3 D Three-boom hydraulic tunnelling rigs have a modern, attractive design and several innovations.

They have emphasised the interaction between operator and machine. The work space is now quieter because of the improved control system that has a reduced amount of high pressure hoses near the operator.

In addition, the control system’s hydraulics provides improved precision and simplicity which improves both safety and productivity. The easily accessed service points are also an important part of the ergonomic design.

The Three-boom hydraulic tunnelling rigs have a FOPS-approved canopy, which can be fitted with a vertical lift of 1 100 mm. This ensures excellent visibility over the whole working area.

In order to reduce particle and nitrogen oxide emissions, Boomer XL3 D Three-boom hydraulic tunnelling rigs have an efficient Tier III engine.

The Boomer XL3 D Three-boom hydraulic tunnelling rigs can be fitted with a wide range of powerful, reliable rock drills for different rock conditions. These include the COP 1638, COP 1838 and the powerful COP 2238.
