Hydraulic Drills

Since Furukawa (FRD) produced the first Japanese made rock drill, they have developed numerous products and established a reputation as the world’s top manufacturer of rock drills.  FRD has mastered the art of crafting the ultimate rock drill to maximize power and economy.  Their range of rock drills includes hydraulic crawler drills, pneumatic crawler drills and down the hole drills.


  • Furukawa hydraulic drills combine powerful penetration with agility and easy operation.
  • The integrated drilling system is comprised of all-hydraulic controls and a reactive damper control system, which work together to accommodate changing rock conditions.
  • Furukawa hydraulic drills feature an anti jamming option.  This automatically adjusts impact and feed force, while the damper control system regulates pressure based on rock hardness.
  • The Dual damper system maximizes energy transfer to produce straighter holes in addition to reducing the wear and tear of the hydraulic drill components.
  • The compact valve design provides rapid valve and piston response for enhanced performance.

The HCR series is an integrated hydraulic crawler drill that has lifted the standard of rock drills by including a new hydraulic drifter and intelligent drilling system that drills faster, yet maximises machine component life and reduces fuel consumption. These features combined with a comfortable cabin and ease of work allow for a large reduction in total drilling costs.


  • Designed to drill faster and straighter
  • The first dual damper system in the industry
  • Minimizes percussion energy loss
  • Reverse percussion is available
  • Maximizes machine component life due to robust engineering

With the new HD700 series, it’s easier to drill faster and straighter than ever before. FRD has developed the Dual Damper System which is the first in the industry. For maximum energy transfer, Active Dual Damper System minimizes the return of shock waves by keeping the bit firmly against the rock at all times during drilling. The HD700 series drifters minimise percussion energy loss and by optimizing the overall feed force required, the drills produce straighter holes and greatly improve the lift of drilling accessories.  They also feature reverse percussion, which enables the most efficient and cost effective reverse drilling when required.


  • Self adjusting drill system to maximise efficiency
  • Impact force, feed force and rotation force are automatically controlled
  • Powerfully designed to drill through the toughest materials
  • Adapts automatically to changing rock conditions
  • Increased drill component life, whilst minimising fuel consumption

The HCR 900-ESII and HCR900-DSII are ideal for demanding site preparation applications. Simple, durable and efficient, these two hydraulic drills incorporate a self-adjusting drill system designed to maximize drilling efficiency through to the bottom of the hole. By automatically controlling the impact force, feed force, rotation force and dual dampener pressure, the HCR 900 series continuously adapts to the changing rock conditions. As a result, drilling performance and the life of the drill tools are increased, while lowering fuel consumption.
