Our 3″ CR is known by smaller rig owners as a “game changer” for them, helping them complete bores and jobs which could not be completed otherwise. The hammer remains efficient due to small air compressor requirements and no need for other auxiliary equipment. In addition to our very high success rate, a big advantage of using the Prospector Air Hammer System is that there is little to no cleanup or environmental issues. The hammer requires only 1 to 2 gallons of water per minute.

Our 3” air hammer model cuts a 4.750 inch hole and operates effectively & efficiently on D9x13 up to D40x55. Air compressor requirements: 200 psi (14 bar) with a minimum of 400 cfm (11 m3/min) to operate effectively. All DCI transmitters and Underground Magnetics, both 15” and 19”, work within the hammer and is wireline adaptable. Adapters are available for Subsite beacons.


*Substitute a hammer oiler for the Support Pack. The hammer oiler is an automatic oiler with a non-pressurized oil tank which also includes a 2,000 psi (138 bar) rated backflow preventer and a hand-operated stainless steel ball valve.
