Drilling Rig Lift Table

Company Profile:

Clarks Mining Services were established in 1980 and are Australia's leading manufacturer of specialised crawler tracked drill rigs for the coal mining industry.


Clarks Mining required a crawler track with lifting capability. To achieve this they wanted to incorporate a crawler track witha Safetech hydarulic scissor lift table. This would allow personnel to drive the lift into mines and then raise the platform to a desired height to assist with drilling and maintenance.

The Problem:

Clarks Mining needed a solution for drilling operations to cause less strain and back injury to operators from constantly standing upright and trying to perform drilling with hand-held drills.

Product Chosen:

A custom-built Safetech ASD2-3000 2 tonne Double Scissor Lift Table, specially constructed for undergroung mining.

Benefits of this Product:

Drilling operations can now be performed both vertically (up & down) and horizontally on both sides of the machine. Additionally, advance or probe drilling can now be carried out in-seam for geological, geo-technical and gas and water drainage purposes.

The combination of the Lift Table and crawler track significantly reduced the risk of injury to operators and increased daily productivity.
