New SR-80 LHR
11 luglio 2011
Due to the continuous growth of urban areas, it has been necessary to consider our rigs capacity to work in restricted space conditions: under power or telephone lines for example, or inside pre-existing structures such as under bridges.
To satisfy this growing market demand, Soilmec has developed a dedicated low-headroom conversion kit to fit the SR-65, SR-70 and SR-80 rigs, for carrying out deep and large diameter piles.
The new Soilmec SR-80 LHR kit has been designed to complete SR-80 base carrier, it is available separately as a simple kit. It includes a dedicated short mast, a modified boom articulation and a new rotary group.
In this configuration, main rig characteristics are the following:
• Max. pile diameter: 2500 mm,
• Max. pile depth: 60,9 m,
• Max. nominal torque: 250 kNm
• pull/up down force: 230 kN
The very first SR-80 LHR was sold to Aldridge Electric, one of the major American infrastructure contractors, and exhibited at Las Vegas Conexpo show in last March encountering great interest from visitors.
