HCR1500 Series II Features & Benefits

Maximize operator performance with the ultimate in ergonomic cab design.

When it comes to ergonomically-friendly cabs, Furukawa offers various options to minimize operator fatigue. Cabs are 51 inches (1,300 mm) with ROPS/FOPS. In addition, all cabs are air-conditioned and continuously pressurized with filtered air to maintain a comfortable operating environment. Other features include:

  • Single-lever drilling control for easy operation.
  • 120-degree swiveling seat adjustable for legroom, back angle, height and operator weight provides maximum visibility.
  • Large windows maximize operator visibility.
  • High-visibility gauges allow operator to monitor machine functions while remaining focused on the drilling.
  • Walk-around ground level maintenance provides fast, easy upkeep or repair.
  • Rubber-mounted engine frame isolates cab from engine vibrations.
  • Low-emission engines offer low fuel consumption and meets US exhaust emissions regulations.
  • High-output compressor increases flushing air, provides faster drilling and decreases bit wear.
  • HCR1500 ED features 12' rods with extendable boom for increased drill pattern, while the HCR1500 D20 has a fixed boom with 20' rods for deeper drilling opportunity.
  • Reliable dust control system increases suction capacity and provides effective pre-cleaner to reduce escape of drilling dust. An optional dust suppression system is available for difficult drilling conditions.
  • Heavy-duty Furukawa undercarriage featuring a pentagonal section design to reduce dirt build-up and track wear ensures strength and durability.
  • Advanced rotary rod changer allows easy drill rod changes. Operators can add and remove rods using a single lever. Rods can also be indexed in the rack to distribute wear evenly and reduce costs.
  • Angle indicator for quick and easy drilling alignment.
