The T2W-III is Atlas Copco’s single-engine rig for rotary and down-the-hole (DTH) drilling in the 30,000-pound class. It is designed for both air and mud applications, and ships with an on-board 900/350 air compressor. The Series III provides a 12-rod capacity in the carousel at 3.5 inches, with swing in/swing out back load capability—designed to allow single-person operation under appropriate conditions. A rod box, mounted to the rig, carries an additional 12 rods at 3.5 inches. Total depth capacity is 480 feet. An optional 15,000 pound winch with two-part line matches the pullback of the rig. An optional 500 horsepower engine is available, and selection between drill and drive mode is made through a split-shaft PTO drive system.
