D45

Question: Is A Hydraulic Upgrade Available For A D45?

Answer: Yes, It includes a Case Drain Manifold with a case drain filter to separate all case drain lines from the Low Pressure Return. The mast spool is changed for better control when lifting and lowering the mast. Cooling flow is increased from 8.5gpm to 20.5gpm, back pressure is still below bypass setting of 50psi.

Question: Is an upgrade available for the pipe support? 

Answer: We have an upgrade available to change the pipe support to a DR460 style, which gives better control when angle drilling.

D50

Question: When should we check the torque spec of the mast pivot cap bolts?

REGULAR CHECKING IS MANDATORY

The mast pivot block bolt torques must be checked every 1000 hours of normal machine service.  More frequent inspections would be warranted where rough drilling or tramming conditions occur, or where the mast is frequently raised and lowered

Every 4000 hours or annually, the bolts, hardened washers, locking tab(s), and dowel pins must be replaced. Refer to the following procedures for installing the hardware and torque specifications.
