CZM Foundation Equipment is proud to introduce the latest addition to their line of high-quality foundation drilling machines – the EK250 Short Mast – at The International Foundations Congress and Equipment Expo 2015 (IFCEE), March 17 – 21 in San Antonio, Texas. Designed and engineered for high performance and versatility, CZM’s EK250SM is mounted on a CAT 336 HP (Tier IV) excavator base, and delivers maximum torque of 234,500 lbf.ft, a drilling depth of 60 feet, and 156 inches of drilling diameter. With a working height of just 30 feet, this is the ideal high-power machine for low clearance/restricted height drilling projects. The EK250SM is designed for use in a wide range of foundation drilling applications, including bridge foundations, transmission lines, high-rise commercial buildings, elevated highways, and more. This model, as well as others in the CZM product line are used in projects nationwide by numerous reputable foundation and transmission line contractors. The robust design of the EK250SM rotary is a result of the largest inner passage diameter in its class, which allows this model to deliver higher drilling torque, the use of stronger Kelly bars, and longer lifetime of main components. The larger inner passage is a main feature of CZM’s unique, patented “Bottom Drive CFA” mechanism, and allows the rig the versatility of fast, easy and economic conversion for different applications such as Standard Kelly Bar to Low Clearance, CFA and also displacement piles. The combination of hydraulic extended crawlers, centralized parallelogram, and a mast made of lightweight/high-yield strength “Weldox” steel, makes the EK250 SM a very stable and safe machine to operate. The EK250SM is part of the comprehensive line of machines manufactured by CZM Foundation Equipment. CZM’s models are engineered for a variety of foundation applications, including portable- and truck-mounted equipment, mini-crawler, and excavator mounted machines. Its team of highly skilled engineers designs and builds some of the highest quality in their class products all which are manufactured and assembled in the USA, offering intelligent solutions for development and improvement. The EK250SM and CZM products are recognized for their high quality and superior after-sales service, as well as innovative design which incorporates the CAT base, along with first line components of American vendors.
