Technology News Tracker: New Cat Drill Increases Productivity and Flexibility

Caterpillar recently unveiled its new MD6200 rotary blasthole drill.

Featuring a small shipping envelope, the machine can also be transported with its mast on to easily move between job sites.

The drill mast can be positioned in a range of angles from 30 to -15 degrees, increasing application flexibility.

Use of the larger Cat 336 undercarriage increases durability and provides a lower center of gravity for improved stability.

The machine includes Drill Assist to automate certain functions, and is equipped to use other Caterpillar automation technologies.
