Continuous innovation keeps EISEN Rockdrills at the forefront of drilling technology. The newest addition to the EISEN family, the 'MC range', raises the bar even further by setting higher standards for what should be expected from a DTH hammer. The MC design eliminates the need for a foot valve in the drill bit. High frequency design coupled with the MC class's improved piston / bit design gives significant penetration rate increases in all drilling conditions. The patented bit retention system gives a fully supported drill bit, which eliminates bit shanking above the chuck and provides a more reliable hammer. The extremely efficient air flow and exhaust system allows the MC range of hammers to drill through extremely large volumes of water without flooding out.   

Jumbo and surface drills refurbishment

EISEN Rockdrills' refurbish facility transforms used jumbos and surface drills into a brand-new condition at a fraction of the price of a new drill machine. By maintaining a complete inventory of parts, underground jumbo drills can be refurbished with new engines and ready to ship in 10 to 12 weeks - a considerably better lead time than the one-year delivery expected for a new drill. Both diesel hydraulic and diesel electric machines can also be refurbished. The jumbos are fitted with the EISEN Wolverine 4000 control panel and the EISEN Wolverine Class hydraulic system, which allows the operation of any manufacturers' hydraulic drills to be fitted and run at the OEM pressure settings. This is due to the EISEN upgraded power packs, which can be set to various operating pressures at the turn of a selector switch. 

Hydraulic rockdrills and spare parts EISEN Rockdrills manufactures both new hydraulic rockdrills and spare parts to refurbish used rockdrills. The range of rock drills available includes many popular models from Tam rock and Atlas Copco. 

Reverse circulation hammers EISEN personnel have a wealth of knowledge and experience in reverse circulation hammer design and manufacturing, spanning over 20 years in a drilling discipline that is just over 30 years old. Bringing this experience to the MX line of hammers, EISEN
