Pneumatic Rock Drills - BBC/BBD/RH

Pneumatic Rock Drill in use

High quality, long lifetime, low long-term costs

AWDS Logo

Real value, top quality

As soon as you pick it up, you'll feel the quality. It's solid, well made. Start it up and you'll notice the power.

You'll appreciate the real advantages of an Atlas Copco rock drill. Each and every part is made to the highest tolerances and of the very best materials. This means that even when you replace a part, your drill will deliver the same level of performance as when it was brand new. Time after time. Year after year.

High quality for high performance

But our drills are not just a good long-term investment, they also make money from day one. That's because Atlas Copco rock drills are efficient -- for every bit of air you put in, you'll get high impact energy out.

Why? Again, the answer is quality. And quality is no accident. It's a question of using the right materials, proven heat-treatment methods, and machining to high tolerances. Last but not least, quality is the result of good honest engineering. Today's range is based on the same reliable design as the Atlas Copco drills that launched the Swedish Method back in the 1940s.

Faster drilling and lower drilling costs

Tapered drilling equipment offers a long list of advantages over integral steel.

First and foremost, penetration is faster. Over 50% faster in some rock. Tapered bits are also easier to use: collaring is faster, drilling straight holes is simpler, and vibrations are considerably lower. In addition, tapered equipment actually gives you lower drilling costs.

Still not convinced? Take a test run and judge for yourself.
