Track mounted concrete core drill designed to efficiently drill out damaged shoulders and track anchors from concrete ties and slab track. Corefast high pressure and high speed drilling systems when used with Corefast diamond core bits, will core holes through a combination of high aggregate concrete, cast iron, and steel in mere seconds.
This railway equipment maintenance machine designed to efficiently drill out damaged shoulders and track anchors from railroad ties. It can drill out damaged shoulders or track anchors in either concrete or wood ties.
It is track mounted using its own power source to core holes through high aggregate concrete, cast iron and steel. And although the machine is mounted on the track, it’s been designed to easily be removed from the track to allow trains to move through.
The machine can be adjusted for any type of shoulder configuration as well as be mounted to drill on the field side or the gauge side of the rail.
The column and drill motor can be quickly tilted and locked down to drill out various models of shoulders that are cast into concrete ties at various angles and depths. Once the Corefast rig is clamped to the rail, the drill motor column pivots 360 degrees around and over the rail, allowing the operator to quickly drill out inserts and shoulders on both the field and gauge sides of the rail.
Choosing the right railway equipment can be a challenge if you’re not sure of the benefits to you or the features that will make your life easier. With our Corefast 3000, we’ve taken these benefits and manufactured them right into our machine. Easy to use and affordable enough to have features such as:
The Corefast 3000 gives you the highest speed and lowest cost per hole when used with Corefast core bits.
The machine is manufactured to have it’s own special valving holds the pressure on the 3-point hydraulic clamps. This secures the machine to the track and prevents any lifting while coring.
Water for the unit is first used to pool the hydraulics in a water and oil heat exchanger before being pumped to the drill heads.
