Presenting the EK200HP


You spoke. We listened. Presenting the EK200HP from CZM Foundation Equipment features key improvements on our renowned EK200 that deliver even higher performance and greater stability and versatility.

  • More Main Line Winch Pull
  • Greater Crowd Force
  • Increased Maximum Torque
  • Longer Crawlers for Greater Stability
  • Fully Integrated Undercarriage
The EK200HP's reliable drilling rig is mounted on a fully integrated CAT 336E Tier IV base, keeping the operation and maintenance extremely friendly and efficient. With the most robust design in the market the EK200HP rotary head has the largest inner passage in its drilling rigs' class. These features allow the EK200HP to deliver increased drilling toque, the use of stronger Kelly Bars, and the versatility of applications like Kelly Bar and CFA. There are no changes to hydraulic hoses for converting to any application thanks to the unique patented torque mechanism, "Bottom Drive CFA". Longer hydraulic extendable crawlers, additional counterweight, and a mast manufactured in "Weldox" steel (lightweight - High Yield Strength) give the EK200HP even great stability.

This model, as well as others in the CZM product line are used in projects nationwide by numerous reputable foundation and transmission line contractors.
