The Cat® MD6250 rotary drill is built from the ground up with 100% Cat parts to help you get the most out of your operation. With built-in autonomous features and the option to integrate Cat MineStar™ technologies, the MD6250 offers accurate, reliable performance in any hard rock drilling application.
The MD6250 features advanced 10-inch touchscreen monitors that help operators easily and accurately manage all drill functions — including standard automated functions. The touchscreen and all controls are mounted to the rotating seat for more comfort and usability, and all displays are intuitively designed for a simpler operator experience.
In addition to enabling better control of the machine, these screens give operators real-time feedback on a wide variety of machine health and performance data, including:
Automate the functions of your drilling cycle to improve both precision and speed. All functions are executed with a single button press to help you:
A matched powertrain gives the MD6250 unmatched power and efficiency. Electronic Compressor Controls (ECC) improve performance while reducing fuel burn. The compressors air output volume and working pressure are adjusted to match the machine’s needs, gathering input from the cutting tool to suit the ground conditions and tooling being used. The result is less wasted effort, lower engine load factor and reduced fuel consumption.
The result is optimal performance of cutting tools, no matter what type of bit or hammer is being used. That means more feet drilled for every tool, reducing your consumable costs and helping you get more out of your machine.
This also makes for longer service life for all drill accessories, including subs, pipes and deck bushings. This all adds up to significant time and costs savings for your maintenance staff, as well as improved productivity for your drill.
The MD6250 includes a number of features designed to increase safety for everyone working on and around the machine, including:
