Advanced Mining offers the world's widest range of equipment for rock drilling, rock excavation, processing, demolition, bulk-materials handling and equipment for surface and underground mining.


Sandvik DP1500i is an intelligent, hydraulic, self-propelled, crawler-based surface top hammer drilling rig.

Fully equipped, the new generation rig produces a range of drilling information including the condition of the drill and the work performed. Clever drilling parameter set up, an advanced ROPS/FOPS certified safety cabin, excellent visibility and step by step trouble shooting instructions make drilling a pleasure.

The DPi series technical solutions also respect the environment. Compared with similar conventional models, the DPi rigs consume 15% less fuel. For a standard 2500 annual engine hours, this would result in a reduction of 35 tons in CO2 emissions.
