GRUNDODRILL 4X marks the spot for R&R McClure Excavations in Australia
During the No Dig Australasia Conference and Exhibition Tim McClure of R&R McClure Excavations Pty Ltd, visited the always impressive TRACTO-TECHNIK Australia Pty Ltd stand spending considerable time with the sales and service team looking in detail at the many features and advantages incorporated into the range of HDD (Horizontal directional drilling) GRUNDODRILL systems currently available from the TT Group.
R&R McClure Excavations are not strangers to the world of HDD having serviced the Victorian area of Australia from their Head Office in Castlemaine for in excess of 23 years. The team has a wealth of technical experience and a strong understanding of the type of equipment required to perform in the often challenging ground conditions surrounding the local areas.
Tim, who handles the day to day operations of the company, was most impressed with the compact GRUNDODRILL 4X system due to its unique compact design and high power to weight ratio.
Following discussions it was decided by the management at McClure Excavations that the GRUNDODRILL 4X was the most superior in its class. As a result an order was placed for the 4x package complete with 32 additional drill rods enabling them to complete bores up to 100m in total. The package also consisted of a GRUNDOMUD 225 gallon high pressure mixing system and various optional accessories such as backreamers and location equipment.

The 4X design is unequalled in many ways such as the 9,800 lbs of thrust and pullback and its high rotational speeds of up to 230 RPM . This enables improved cutting efficiency on smaller diameter bores in hard ground conditions.
|With a width of just 90cm and a length of 330cm the GRUNDODRILL 4X is much more compact than any rivals in its class. This compact size enables the machine to be operated from confined areas such as footpaths and with minimal setback requirements and increased bend radius. |
Another unrivalled feature which has been well received by the machine operator’s is the single joystick design with integrated vice, throttle and bentonite control. All parties have been impressed with the performance and reliability of the system . In fact the machine has been in operation daily in some very difficult ground conditions since delivery with no downtime or operational problems whatsoever
