Company installing Tier 4 Final/Stage V compliant engines on number of surface drill rigs produced in the EU
EPIROC have announced that in order to be in compliance with the latest emission regulations, the company is now replacing the engines on a number of surface drill rigs produced in the European Union.

The affected drill rig models are as follows:
FlexiROC T15 R, FlexiROC T20 R, FlexiROC T25 R Construction Edition, FlexiROC T30 R Construction Edition, FlexiROC T30 R Quarry Edition, FlexiROC T35 R, FlexiROC T40 R, FlexiROC T35, FlexiROC T40, FlexiROC T45, FlexiROC D50, FlexiROC D55, FlexiROC D60 and FlexiROC D65.
