Hercules Machinery moves to the next level with new Movax drills Hercules Machinery is launching two new drills to the North America market from their partnership with the Movax line out of Finland. These drills are true attachments. Oher attachment drills can only drill 25 feet deep where the TAD32 will go 30 feet deep and the KB70 will go 50 feet. Other drills capable of those depths are dedicated drill rigs.

TAD-32 Features • Excavator-mounted auger drive attachments for cast in-situ piling and other earth drilling work. Especially suitable for work in confined spaces while still being good at reaching over obstacles. The telescopic design keeps the machine low and allows working on sites with limited headroom without compromising on drilling depth. • Hydraulically operated telescopic Kelly bar with two extension. • Available with different type of augers for normal soil conditions, hard clay, hard soil etc. • Controlled with the MOVAX Control System (MCS™) − MCS Lite, MCS Pro or MCS Pro+auto. • Reporting and documentation of piling works with M-logbook™ (optional, requires MCS Pro or MCS Pro+auto).

The TAD and KB are easy on and off the excavator − and when drilling is done, the contractor has the excavator to work with, not a drill rig sitting until the next drill job. These new drills are a perfect companion piece to other HMC products, all of which are excavator-mounted, allowing contractors to save time, money, and reduce the crew size on their piling projects.
