Mincon Hardrock Hammer Systems utilize “High Frequency Cycle” technology. Mincon Hardrock is the only manufacturer of Steerable Hammers that incorporate this feature. The advantages to this are as follows.High Frequency design aids in faster removal of drill cuttings from the bit face while providing the smallest possible chip size. This aids in keeping the borehole cleaner and reduces the possibility of getting the tool stuck. High Frequency design improves the steering capabilities of the tool. In head to heads tests against other competitor manufacturers the Mincon Hardrock systems out steered them in dirt, cobble and solid rock.High Frequency design provides less vibration to the drill string. 


Every Mincon DTH hammer is built in-house, at our state-of-the-art factories. All components are precision-manufactured using high-quality raw materials and undergo proprietary heat-treatment processes at our own facilities to guarantee durability and quality.
Mincon’s DTH hammer models support a wide variety of popular drill bit shank designs and are available with all common backhead connections. API Reg pin connectors are standard.

  • Patented innovation to ensure maximum energy transfer
  • Simplified design for easier servicing and higher reliability
  • Valveless, high-frequency design for smoother operation
  • Multi-start threads on backhead and chuck for easy coupling/uncoupling
  • Unique internal mount system eliminates the need for wear shims and special assembly tools
  • Specialised heat-treatment hardening for critical components for maximum longevity

Cobble Commander


This one of a kind HDD utility drilling fluid has yet to meet a job it can’t handle. Cobble Commander increases the drilling fluid’s ability to carry out cuttings without drastically affecting the viscosity. This is indicated by high-yield point and low plastic viscosity readings. When not circulating, the mud instantly returns to a gelled state and immediately suspends drilled cuttings. At the end of the day, Cobble Commander will allow for more time efficient drilling and the carrying out of more cuttings, proving the efficiency and quality of the formula.

  • Increase rate of penetration
  • Excellent cuttings transport
  • Excellent cuttings suspension
  • Bore hole stabilization through “gel locking” in the formation
  • To be used with bentonite
  • A must for any dual-rod machine
  • Compatible with PAC’s, TROL’s, lubricants, detergents, PHPA, etc.
  • Recommended for rock, sand, gravel, and cobble formations
  • Increases the drilling mud’s ability to carry out cuttings without drastically raising the viscosity
Cobble Commander HDD utility drilling fluids available at Vermeer Canada

GEL/BENTONITE drilling fluid systems improve your drilling performance, the technology maximizes production, and environmental solutions to safely manage waste volumes. Specialized additives complement the efficiencies of our advanced drilling fluid systems by targeting performance-hindering downhole conditions, eliminating or minimizing the problems that drive up costs and threaten drilling programs. For example, we were the first to introduce cost-effective, high-efficiency micronized barite technology to water- and oil-based drilling fluids.

Innovative drilling fluid engineers are at the company’s core, helping oil and gas operators increase efficiency and lower costs. We do this by developing drilling fluid systems and additives that accommodate a wide range of drilling environments and demanding applications—including:

The FIRST EVER compact lift with both lithium ion battery power and combustion engine

It’s time to cut the cord! The Bluelift is the first compact lift in its class to offer both lithium batteries and combustion engine on board. You no longer need to plug in your electric compact lift into a 110V outlet which means no more slow speeds, no more extension cords and no more frustration. 


The lithium battery option functions at 100% speed as the gas engine whereas machines running on 110v only function at approximately 40%. The B53 has a work height of 53′ and will travel through a standard single door. The B53 is easy to operate and can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.
