Hydracore 4000 Manportable

The Hydracore 4000 Manportable has the power of the Hydracore 4000 but in a multi-engine package that can be moved on trails by men or ATVs. Some customers have drilled 6500 feet of N in very inaccessible sites with these machines. These drills have very similar specifications to the single engine Hydracore 4000 Drills, but the manportable version is powered by three 70 HP engines, or sometimes twin 100 HP engines.  The smaller engines make these machines much more portable.
