Atlas Copco is launching a new 14kW low pressure rock drill for surface drilling applications.

The RD 14S is the first of a new line of rock drills designed for straight forward and reliable operation. It is to operate with consistent performance over time.

“We are excited at this opportunity to have a new product with which we can approach a different and somewhat new style of customer; we are looking forward to the opportunities resulting,”says David Jonsson, product portfolio manager. “The RD 14S is intended for customers which prioritize reliability and ease of maintenance rather than  peak performance;  for smaller operations where cost is critical this would be an optimum rock drill of choice.”
The new RD 14S was created with two main bodies and a single dampening system to minimize the number of moving parts and was produced to ensure ease of maintenance and operation. Its robust design safeguards it delivers the consistent performance associated with Atlas Copco’s rock drills.
