Building fence can be a challenge in rocky, frozen or swampy ground where it’s impossible to dig postholes efficiently or set posts with a tractor-mounted post-pounder. Options in rocks include digging holes with a backhoe or chipping away the rock, if it’s a formation that will chip and break; prying rocks out with a hand bar; or using a hammer drill. “This works for drilling small-diameter holes into solid rock to insert a steel post, or even a bigger hole for a brace post,” says Michael Thomas, Thomas and Son Custom Fencing, Baker, Idaho. “You can use either a pneumatic hammer drill that runs off an air compressor, or an electric hammer drill and a generator. These work fairly well, if you use a heavy-duty industrial model. A small one won’t do the job in big rocks,” he says. With a good drill, you can put posts into fairly solid rock. In some terrain, where it’s not too steep and there are surface rocks, you can create an aboveground cage of rocks ...

Rock Drilling Market – Competition by Key Players/Suppliers, Business Strategies & Gross Margin by Segmentation | TEIRockDrills, FERRI srl, Haryson Engineering Co, Traxxon & GILL ROCK DRILL CO. INC.

Rock drills are everyday tools to create short holes up to 20 feet. The tool penetrates and breaks the rock surface and then expands the breakage by repeated percussion along with rotation. It is designed in such a way that it can break even the hardest materials created by nature. Rock drills are an ideal choice for various tasks across lime mines, quarries, construction, drilling, and civil engineering work. Technological advancements have resulted in greater use of rock drills in underground tunnel construction. Technologies enable easy access to construction in any terrain. High drilling capacity and low maintenance cost of rock drills are two of their distinctive features which can help them standout in the industry. The rock drilling market is anticipated to rise due to rapid advancement in technology. Development of technology has enabled drilling and tunneling at the most dangerous areas. Also, monitoring devices such as sensors and monitors enable the smooth functioning of the drilling and tunneling process, thus increasing the demand for rock drilling equipment. Latest technology in the tunneling process and latest trends of dismantling tunnels opens the door for oppor...
