The new CME-55LC from Central Mine Equipment Co. has a feed-and-retract system and a quick disconnect mast that allows it to work under service station canopies, bridges or other overhead restrictions. The overall working height with the mast disconnected is less than 12 feet when mounted on the CME-300 tracked carrier. This compact rig provides 28,275 pounds of retract force and 18,650 pounds of pull-down force. Possible options include a hydraulic rod holder and breakout wrench, sideways and in/out slide bases, and a version of the CME SPT automatic hammer. The CME-55LC can also be truck-mounted, and a high-torque version is available as well. Central Mine Equipment Co.
