Like all Foremost Exploration Series drills, the Explorer 1500 incorporates proven reverse circulation components and provides excellent mobility over marginal terrain.

Large terra tires minimize ground pressure and environmental impact, making the Explorer 1500 the ideal machine for the early stages of exploration where roads are not built and even small environmental damage must be restored. The rubber tires also enable the Explorer 1500 to travel at reasonable speeds between different mine sites or holes.

The integral Foremost designed carrier features a hydraulic leveling deck for safe operation on sloped terrain. The front dozer blade aids in quick site preparation and in stabilizing the rig during drilling operations.
