Global experience in diamond drilling.


The F1500 was developed and built by Falcon Perforaciones Mexico in response to the need for a helicopter transportable drill with deeper drilling capability than the F1000.  In addition to drilling deeper it is also able to use N and NTW sized bits as well as the usual B and BTW bits.  It is a hydraulically driven drill powered by a four cylinder diesel engine offering excellent fuel efficiency.  It is equipped with a five foot head stroke for improved productivity and core recovery.  Like the F1000 it is available in helicopter portable, truck mobile or skid mounted versions.
