Constructed for rotary or down the hole drilling, Sandvik DR412i is automation-ready and built to guarantee reliability while bringing a new level of safety and productivity to any operation.

Three key components led the innovative design efforts that brought the DR412i to life.


Reduce costs and increase safety with automated features like teleremote control, allowing one operator to control multiple rigs. Crafted to suit your needs, Sandvik DR412i is built with key walkways for easy access, an ergonomic operator environment, and large single-pass (18 m) and multi-pass (75 m) capacity.


An advanced hydraulic system allows for preventative maintenance. Rigid undercarriage construction increases stability to allow for more drive power. Power delivery is optimised for efficiency through the inclusion of the company’s compressor management system. Automated In-Cab control features like pipe handling cut down on maintenance time frames and increase availability.


Sandvik equipment is built to last, ensuring durability and availability through the harshest drilling environments in the world. The compressor management system is Sandvik’s most recent innovation and solves the inherent inefficiencies of rotary blasthole drills by isolating the compressor to reduce emissions and enhance durability. Sandvik’s CMS works to save thousands of gallons of fuel per year and will ultimately reduce your overall carbon footprint.
