Sometimes We Build Stuff That is Not for Drilling at All

Sometimes we build stuff that is not for drilling at all. In February 2015 we built a special rod puller for AMC mining. The rod pulling device in the picture is mainly made of typical Hydracore parts. It’s only purpose though is to put special stainless steel grouting rods in and out of pre drilled holes. It will be used to complete grouting in a shaft being made by AMC Mining in Saskatchewan. These were designed on our CAD system so that they would clamp right onto the casing of each hole and were ready to use right away with no modifications.
