Rod Handler Safety System


A new safe hands-free rod handler is now available with all Dando hydraulic rotary drilling rigs including the Watertec, Mintec, Multitec and Coretec ranges.

Inexpensive and simple to use, this safety feature eliminates physical lifting and manipulation of the drill rods thus increasing the safety of the drilling team when loading rods. The Dando rod handler, comprised of an arm, wrist, rotary actuator and clamping assembly, mounts to the front of the drilling rig’s breakout table and is powered by the machine’s hydraulic system. Hosed with quick connects, the unit can be easily removed for use in areas of limited space and difficult access. The rotary actuator enables the arm to swing through 135 degrees for angle drilling up to 45 degrees and the rod handler assembly has a clamping range of 2” to 8⅝” with enough power to lift 8⅝” x 20 ft. rods. A safety shut-down system has also been fitted to the arm which prevents the operator from standing on the arm or becoming pinned between the arm and the ground.
