New underground hard rock video series spotlights a Timberock bolting head retrofit

Did you know you can bring new life to your underground hard rock operations with an equipment retrofit of vital components? Komatsu retrofits are compatible with every major OEM. It’s an easy and cost-effective way to help improve operations and increase the value and efficiency of your underground hard rock fleet.

Here are some other key advantages of a Komatsu retrofit:

  • Cut costs: Reduce your operating budget with more efficient components and lower maintenance costs from common fleet parts
  • Extend machine life: Delay large investments in new bolters and jumbos by replacing vital components — such as a mining rock drill — that do the hard work
  • Boost productivity: Whether Montabert drifters that can increase penetration rates by 8.5% or Timberock feeds with fast-loading 9-bolt carousels, our retrofits help you get results
  • Promote zero-harm: Lower drifter noise, fewer bit changes, strong rock bolting anchorage and less maintenance fosters a better work environment and minimizes hazards
  • Retrofit your way: Our component experts will work closely with you to address your unique needs and help you get the most from retrofitting your fleet
  • Standardize your fleet: Your crew trains on one system, rebuilds and maintenance require only one service provider and the need for excess inventory is reduced

Komatsu offers four retrofit solutions: Montabert hydraulic rock drill drifters, Timberock feeds and bolting heads, and an innovative J-LOK P pumpable resin injection system. Choose any or all based on application and need.

To help further illustrate the many advantages of a retrofit, we’ve put together a series of short videos that focuses on several key features of a bolting head retrofit. This multi-episode video series is hosted by Jameson Evans, Product Support Specialist. Each brief episode spotlights one important aspect of a bolting head retrofit from a competitor jumbo to a Komatsu TR-21, manufactured by Timberock.

In this first video, Jameson takes you through the all-important feeds, highlighting the benefits of the dual, independent feed design of the TR-21, the innovative and adjustable wear strips, and more.
