MC 16

Compact rig for mini piling

The MC 16 is part of the Comacchio line-up of drill rigs for vertical applications. The mast design of these rigs was simplified to raise from its near horizontal transport position to vertical and has a 5° (or 10°, depending on mast length) side slew offering maximum performance for vertical drilling. The MC 16 can be used for all rotary and rotary-percussive drilling methods, including high efficiency large diameter down-the-hole hammers with up to 600 mm diameter. The machine can be equipped with hydraulic proportional servo-assisted controls or with the innovative Comacchio radio control systemIn its "F-Line configuration" the MC 16 is ideally suited for concrete injection operations (mini piles) using solid stem and continuous flight augers (CFA). The modular mast structure allows for a feed stroke ranging from 3.100 to 8.600 mm, with an option to add a 2.5 m auger extension.  Like all Comacchio rigs, the MC 16 can be customized according to specific needs.
