Our “Hands Free”Rod Handlers are universal & can work with any make of rig.
We offer two versions: Rod Clamp Type for Top Head Drive Drill Rigs and V-Trough type for spindle Head Coring Rigs in conjunction with a horizontal Roto-Magazine.
Our rod handler units will eliminate the following safety risks without compromising production:
• No more need for trestles
• No more handling of rods when moving from hole to hole
• No more suspended energy when rods are hoisted & lowered
• No more pendulum effect when hoisting & lowering rods with winch cable
Rods are held in a cup clamp (for top head rigs) or trough for (for spindle head rigs) making it fail safe unlike externally clamped rod manipulators which rely on friction/clamp pressure.
Our rod handler units furthermore reduce crew fatigue, are safe, simple & schlick.
