Hydracore 5000 Manportable

The Hydracore 5000 Manportable has the power of the Hydracore 5000 but in a multi-engine package that can be moved on trails. This drill is designed to go very deep with H size rods.  This manportable drill has very similar specifications to the single engine Hydracore 5000 drill, but the manportable version is powered by three 70 HP engines.  The smaller engines make these machines much more portable, while still having the larger feed frame and foot clamp to give the extra pull back that is sometimes necessary when drilling H and P size.
