Caterpillar’s new track drill

Caterpillar’s MD5075C track drill, replaces the MD5075 with updates to the cab, touch screen navigation and control system.

The pressurized cab provides multiple shutdown options and more responsive controls than the previous model and is isolator-mounted to reduce vibration while drilling. The new seat now features six-way adjustability.

Several operations are controlled by touch screen navigation, including the rearview camera, tram, water, rock drill auto-lube, alerts, drilling/target depths, penetration rate, machine performance, total hours and services.

The display, like other Cat touch screen options, uses icons for navigation and control and displays pressure, drill rotation and hole depth conditions. A depth indicator identifies and makes sure planned depth presets are drilled accurately.

Assisted technology also is part of the new machine, in the form of Drill Assist. This monitors main hydraulic systems, automatically adjusts to pre-programmed settings and incorporates anti-jam, anti-plunge and anti-plug capabilities.

The MD5975C can drill holes 3 to 4.5 inches in diameter up to 102.5 feet deep, with the HPR5123 rock drill standard capable of being fitted with a 45 or 51 mm drill rod. It can also use the HPR4519 rock drill fitted with a 45 mm rod. As with all Caterpillar rock drills, these can be serviced on-site, helping to reduce downtime.

It features a 300-hp C9 engine with added fuel filtration, with remote-mounted secondary and tertiary 4-micron filters with easy-access locations. Other features include the Cat Monitoring System to check critical engine functions, and to derate the engine in order to protect from damage, with warning lights and audible alarms announcing poor engine conditions.

All Cat track drills include Product Link for remote monitoring and tracking.
