The CME-55LCX is a compact geotechnical drill with the high spindle torque of bigger machines (over 12,000 foot-pounds). It has a unique feed system and quick disconnect mast for low overhead clearance jobs. The overall working height, as mounted on the CME-300 track carrier, is just 12 feet with the mast disconnected. Low-clearance sheaves allow full use of hoist lines, and a low-clearance auto-hammer lifting cylinder enables normal SPT sampling operations.
