Carousel Rod Changer

Fast. Strong. Dependable.

Fast and Electronics-free for Maximum Uptime

Cat Carousel Rod Changers are a reliable mechanical design with no sensitive electronic sensors that cause excessive downtime. One of the largest contributors to downtime on a track drill is electronics failures on carousel rod changers. This frequently occurs because electronics system sensors are vulnerable to dust, vibration and movement. Conversely, Cat Track Drills’ carousel rod-handling system is 100 percent electronics-free. Everything is mechanical for maximum uptime and easier troubleshooting.

Sturdy Boom and Feed Support the Carousel Rod Changer

  • The 2.7 m (9 ft) boom extends an additional 0.9 m (3 ft) for larger pattern coverage with fewer set ups
  • The boom swing capability is 26° L to 37° R for wide pattern coverage
  • Heavy-duty boom is constructed of thick square tubing with steel plate reinforcements in key areas to add strength
  • Feed table is 2.7 m (9 ft) with a 0.9 m (3 ft) extension. It resists torsion and thrust loads due to high strength steel channels with diagonal internal bracing.
  • A new, patented, hose tensioning method keeps hoses on the drum, sheaves are used to prolong long hose life and a feed chain auto-tensioner feature reduces adjustment time
  • Feed wear pads are replaceable with patent pending adjusters
  • Planetary gearbox feed drive is capable of 4354 kg (9,600 lb) feed force and 36.9 mpm (121 fpm) speed
  • LED lighting on the feed illuminates the carousel and hole site for around the clock drilling
  • Additional Features

Rock Drills

Reliable. Durable. Low operating cost.

Standard on the MD5150C is the HPR5128 hydraulic powered percussion rock drill rated at 28 kW (37.5 hp) output energy with dual hydraulic variable rotation motors producing up to 2033 N·m (1,500 lbf-ft) torque

Reliable Performer

Low cost of ownership and reliability are yours with renowned Cat Rock Drills. Building on a legacy of simplistic power, these drills have long life expectancy and are field serviceable. This combination of robust design and easy maintenance means more hours of reliable, low-cost operation. For added efficiency, the pistons are matched to the cross section of the rod so the wave form is properly matched for maximum energy transfer.

Durable Design

A simple design coupled with high strength materials yields exceptional durability.
  • Having only half of the components of competitive models, there are fewer internal parts to wear.
  • There are four major housings bolted together with high strength flanges eliminating troublesome long tie rods.
  • Long life alloy bushings
  • Fast response accumulators provide a smooth and efficient hydraulic oscillation
  • Long leakage paths of the oscillator bearings yield high volumetric efficiency

Owner Serviceable

Cat Rock Drills are so simple that owner serviceability is a viable alternative and cost savings.
  • Other models require downtime for round trip transportation to a clean room environment
  • Only their OEM service technicians can perform the maintenance and repairs
  • All maintenance and rebuilds can be done in your shop and some maintenance can even be done with the rock drill still mounted to the feed.
  • Accumulator assemblies may be replaced in the field
  • Troubleshooting is easy since there are half the components of other drills

New Automated Rock Drill Lube System

Peak performance is sustained when your rock drill is kept lubricated, cool, and automatically maintained with our new Auto Rock Drill Lube System. Operators no longer have to stop drilling to manually grease the rock drill every two hours.
  • Saves more than forty hours a year over manual greasing
  • Components reach full life expectancy at proper lube intervals
  • Grease reservoir stores supply for up to five 8-10 hour shifts
  • A timer board cycles the grease pump throughout the day eliminating maintenance time
  • High and low pressure conditions are continually monitored through the display screen

Solid Structures

Get long-lasting reliability and performance.

You can expect a long life due to the structural integrity of our frames and the robust Cat 315C undercarriage. Despite the unyielding demands of drilling and navigating rough terrain, our structures are continually proven reliable. The frame supports the upper machine weight plus the added hammer pressure of percussive drilling, yet the MD5150 remains extremely maneuverable thanks to its low center of gravity, high ground clearance, and independent track oscillation.

Frame

You can rely on a maintenance free and long lasting base for your drill because each frame is designed and thoroughly inspected in-house. All weld inspections are certified to CWI or CAWI standards.
  • High quality steel
  • Welds are magnetic particle inspected
  • Vibratory stress tested
  • Designed to our best-built standards

Undercarriage

Get there faster on a Cat 315C Undercarriage. You can quickly and precisely position the MD5150C at drill patterns thanks to the agility of independent track oscillation. Further, the best-built design and high ground clearance allow you to confidently tram rough terrain between benches.
  • Highly Maneuverable: – Dual tram speed 4.0 km/h or 1.6 km/h (2.5 mph or 1.0 mph) – Gradeability 35° – Ground clearance 406 mm (16 in) – Wide triple grousers 380 mm (15 in) – Oscillation ±11°; hydraulic cylinder controlled
  • Durable: – Robust strut design is resistant to failures – Easy installation and removal of shoes – Rebuildable
  • Cat® Grease Lubricated Track (GLT): – Each track joint is sealed to retain the grease between the pin and bushing – Improves internal wear life by over 25% than sealed track – Track noise is reduced because there is no metal to metal contact between the pin and bushing – The grease lubricant prevents frozen or seized track joints – Overall system wear life is enhanced due to sprocket wear improvements

Dust Collection

Contain it – quickly and quietly.

Powered to clean holes up to 152.4 mm (6.0 in), the MD5150C dry dust collection system is efficient, quiet and it consumes less power than traditional dust collectors. The heavy-duty system effectively manages rock fragments and dust yet is also easy to clean and service.
