Foremost is excited to announce a brand new Dual Rotary Drill that has been added to our product line-up, the DR-40SHD.  The DR-40SHD is Foremost’s first fully electric drill which is controlled remotely using a mobile console for operator safety.  The DR-40SHD features a brand new 40” lower drive with increased capacity (close to twice the torque of the current DR-40) and an improved chucking system. Utilizing a flexible set up to drill anywhere from vertical to horizontal angles, the DR-40SHD can be used in a wide variety of applications including de-salination projects and deep hole water wells.

In the coming months we will showcase footage of our very first DR-40SHD model performing in the field.  A big thank you goes out to the Engineering and Manufacturing teams for their hard work, creativity, and time devoted to taking this brand new DR Drill from concept to reality.  We are very excited for our latest addition to the DR line-up and look forward to updating everyone with new footage, images and product information in the near future!
