Rock drilling

ADK fleet includes the Tracto 18ACS & Tracto 130ACS - German engineered machines specialised for rock drilling. Each Tracto has industry leading inner rods with a serious water pump system to aggressively grind the rock face into gravel and send the fragments from the cutting face to the launch and retrieval pits.

ADK have a tiny JT10 drill for the small jobs that is ideal to get in and out with a short footprint. The JT10 is no rock monster and only allowed to go out to soil jobs.
