..if we are honest, this isn't the most popular part of the mining process.
We'd all much rather be drilling holes than filling them back in.
But it has to be done and done responsibly!
It's like enjoying the party all night, and then having to clean up the debris in the morning!
So that being said, how can it be easier?
We've been exploring with a few miners an easier way to cut the PVC collars and remove them fast.
Traditionally this has been done with some manual method, like the Manual Collar Cutters.
However there has to be an easier way than this!
So over the last 18 months we've been exploring a few options.
Nothing is available off the shelf, so adaptions were needed in our workshop by the R&D team.
This came in the form of a Honda Brushcutter, Strimmer, Whipper Snipper: Call it what you like.
This unit is 4-Stroke Petrol machine, view it here.
Although this was certainly an advance we knew it could be better and safer.
So lets introduce the Milwaukee Battery Powered Collar Cutter!
Petrol machines are ideally avoided on mine/exploration sites if they reasonably can be, so this wins that battle too.
Check it in action!
