Rigged for productivity with XCMG and UHI Machinery

UHI Machinery’s XCMG rotary drilling rigs are making an impact in the local market.

Since landing in the local market last year, UHI Machinery’s XR80E and XR240E rotary drilling rigs have been making a strong impression, enabling operators to power on through courtesy of a range of innovative features. The machines are manufactured by multinational heavy machinery company XCMG, and have been decked out to streamline operations, providing a range of productivity benefits.

The 30-tonne XR80E is widely used in the hole-forming operations of cast-in-place concrete piles.

Small machinery specialist UHI supports the XR80E and XR240E with an evolving range of drilling tools, paving the way for additional versatility, allowing operators to tailor their approach in line with the requirements of individual projects.

By partnering with top-five global construction machinery company XCMG, UHI continues to bring quality machines to the local market, with XCMG having built a strong reputation for producing robust, reliable, and efficient machines.

The XR80E and XR240E slot neatly into UHI’s broader portfolio of wheel loaders, skid steer loaders, and mini loaders, with UHI’s range comprising a wide selection of machines with the ability to thrive in tough conditions.

Versatile XCMG rigs provide a range of options

The new XCMG rigs are capable of carrying out both driven and drilled pile foundation projects, enabling Kelly drilling, continuous flight auger, full displacement piles, single column mixing, cased continuous flight auger, and low headroom applications.

XR80E

The XR80E comprises a base unit on crawlers and a drilling application module, and is widely used in the hole-forming operations of cast-in-place concrete piles in the construction of roads, railways, bridges, ports, and high-rise buildings.

It weighs in at 30t (excluding drilling tools), with its features including:

  •  An electronically controlled and turbocharged 115kW Cummins engine, which meets North American Tier 4 Final and Euro Stage V emission standards
  •  A hydraulic telescopic crawler chassis and large diameter slewing bearing provides strong stability and allows for easy transportation
  •  The hydraulic pressure system adopts limited power control and negative flow control, delivering energy efficiency
  •  A standard centralised lubrication system makes maintenance more convenient
  •  Standard configuration of the crowd cylinder is complemented by optional multifunctional configuration (including crowd winch, continuous flight auger and rotary spray)
  •  Can be transported with the Kelly bar.
The 84-tonne XR240E is especially suitable for industrial and civil buildings.

XR240E

The multifunctional XR240E is widely used in the hole-forming operations of cast-in-place concrete piles in the construction of roads, railways, bridges, and large venues (with it especially suitable for industrial and civil buildings).

It weighs in at 84t (excluding drilling tools), with its features including:

  •  A 252kW Cummins engine, which meets North American Tier 4 Final and Euro Stage V emission standards
  •  Provides quick functions switching, such as crowd cylinder, crowd winch, continuous flight auger, and dual rotary drive, meeting different construction needs
  •  The rotary drive and main winch are designed to deliver efficient performance, with the main and auxiliary winches both utilising single-rope technology
  •  The double jib parallelogram luffing mechanism has a large support angle, making operations more stable
  •  An intelligent control system enables functions such as automatic adjustment and display of mast perpendicularity, automatic rotation, spin-off, lifting and concrete pouring, and pile type display
  •  The hydraulic system adopts negative flow control technology, which has a fast response and good handling performance
  •  A high-power, temperature-controlled independent hydraulic oil radiator can meet the construction requirements of high-temperature areas, with it adjusting the fan speed according to temperature changes, saving energy.
The XR80E is powered by an electronically controlled, turbocharged 115kW Cummins engine.
