The team at the Cobar facility have been busy completing a first of a kind project at the PJL Group. Endeavour Operations approached the team with regard to converting a Tamrock Super Drill into a Tamrock Powerclass Jumbo to reduce their operating costs whist limiting the use of hire machinery.
The original machine was an electric over hydraulic fitted with an air conditioned cabin. The PJL Group are converting the machine to be controlled with pilot hydraulics, and have also removed the air conditioned cabin and fitted a canopy to increase the operator’s vision.
“The machine also had to be fully re-hosed and re-wired for the modification to be successful. The work will be finished within 4 weeks.” Cobar Operations Manager, Chris Plummer said.
