Atlas Copco RD20 for Sale1. The RD20 is made by Atlas Copco

If there’s one manufacturer you should trust it is Atlas Copco. Drilling since 1972, Atlas Copco’s mission statement is to increase profitability for its independent drillers who rely on increasing productivity in order to reduce costs. You can trust that Atlas Copco’s self-contained, powerful and mobile drill rigs will serve your company’s needs for years to come.

2. The RD20’s Powerful Feed Syetem

Atlas Copco’s patented carriage feed system is the heart of the RD20 with a full 110,000 lb. (49,896 kg) of pullback to the RD20II and 120,000 lb. (54,446 kg) to the RD20III.

With rapid feed speeds and precise weight control, you’ll benefit from the RD20’s advanced mechanics, which are designed to deliver optimum efficiency. The derrick eliminates compressive loads on the upper derrick, even at full pullback.

3. Quick Pipe Handling

Want proof of how Atlas Copco’s RD20 increases efficiency? Look no further than the fact that it only take 45 to 60 seconds to completely change or add drill pipe – a time significantly faster than that of a conventional drill rig.

4. Pure Power

The RD20 is powered by a Cummins QSK-19C, 755-hp deck engine. Here at Rig Source, we believe that Cummins engines are the most powerful and reliable engines available.

The engine, compressor and hydraulic pumps of the RD20 are mounted on a floating powerpack base rather than directly onto the chassis mainframe. According to AtlasCopco.com, “this arrangement assures proper alignment of power components and decreases wear.”

5. Versatility

A variety of options come with the RD20 including three-inch/1500psi circulation piping. The RD20 also comes equipped with connections for an auxiliary compressor and booster. Optional water-injection systems, as well as oil injection for DHD operation are available.
