We inspect used blast hole rock drills

Before you purchase a used rock drill for a quarry or for tunnelling it should be inspected by a third party. MEVAS is a German equipment inspection company. With our network of qualified local inspectors we appraise used heavy equipment such as excavators, rock crushers, screens and drills in many countries. In the past couple of years we have done inspections on blast hole rock drilling machines of Atlas Copco, Sandvik, Tamrock, Ingersoll Rand. Equal if you have an in-hole hammer or a top-hammer rock drilling machine-we have the engineers to perform a qualified inspection.

In case of a blast-hole-drill inspection we follow an inspection checklist with all machine items. The inspector approves condition of operator station, engine, hydraulic system, hydraulic cylinders, hoses and lines, chassis and frames, undercarriage and tracks, mast and carousel, hammer and drill-rods and dust removal unit. If an operator is available we check with him functionality of rod-handling and drill functions.

If the machine has a Caterpillar engine we can download the engine report from the ECU. It is a good tool to verify working hours. Finally the inspector would list all attachments which would come with the machine such as drill rods and bits.

MEVAS is not buying or selling equipment. We do inspections, thats it.

Recycling Plant Inspections

Purchasing a recycling machine such as a rock crusher or a screening machine is a bit risky - even if you send your own technician. These machines can have many hidden problems. We are looking back to at least 60 inspected crushers of many brands such as Pegson, Terex, Gipo, Finlay, Fintec, Sandvik and some other brands.

Drilling & Piling Machine

If you need the equipment check for the quality of a used drilling or a piling machine we might be able to assist you as well. We are maybe not the best civil-engineering specialists but we have experience with inspection of larger machines of Bauer, Delmag, ABI, Cassagrande and Juntaan.
