CZM EK200 Drilling Rig

Introducing the EK200 Bottom Drive CFA Rig by CZM The EK200 is a versatile cylinder crowd drilling rig from CZM, mounted on a robust CAT340. Renowned for its adaptability, the EK200 is available in both Long Mast and Short Mast configurations, catering to a wide range of drilling requirements. As a 2 load machine, it’s recognized for its ease of setup and boasts the highest torque in its class, making it a preferred choice for drilling professionals.

Product and Technical Information


The EK200 is powered by the new Cat 340 Next Gen, which utilizes a fuel-efficient Tier 4 Final C9.1 ACERT engine. This advanced power system is complemented by CAT Vision Link, enabling management teams to monitor machine operations and maintenance remotely, ensuring optimal performance and efficiency.


The undercarriage of the EK200 features the Caterpillar variable model VH4600/4450/720, supported by a reinforced H style frame that provides a solid and adaptable foundation for the rig’s operations.


A reinforced mast constructed from high resistance steel Weldox 700 gives the EK200 the structural integrity needed to withstand the demands of various drilling projects.

Main Winch:

The main winch system is designed with a special groove to improve cable life through better winding. It includes a press-roller and features two gears for a balance of high speed and significant pulling force. The winch operates with automatic gear shifting for smooth, high-production drilling and includes an automatic down-the-hole winch stop. During crowd operations, the winch operates freely, with both hydraulic and mechanical brakes for safety. The cabin’s display of hydraulic pulling force measurements keeps the operator fully informed.


The EK200’s rotary is engineered for resilience, with two slewing bearings at the top and bottom, and a sturdy pinion and main gear. It houses two groups of Hydraulic Motor / Planetary Gears for exceptional torque and extended service life. The system is equipped with anti-cavitation, anti-shock, and a cooling system to ensure the hydraulic motors last longer. A power-shift feature allows for a high spin-off speed, facilitating efficient soil discharge. With three operational and spinoff speeds, the rotary is optimized for both high torque and rapid speeds. The operator can easily monitor torque via the hydraulic measurement display in the cabin.


The cab of the EK200 is designed with the operator’s comfort and safety in mind, featuring an AM/FM Radio, air conditioning, heating, and ROPS certification with top protection. An LCD monitor connects to the engine and hydraulics computer, providing a comprehensive diagnostic system. The CZM Canbus System for Drilling Monitoring, complete with auto functions, further enhances drilling precision and efficiency.

The EK200 Bottom Drive CFA rig by CZM is a testament to advanced engineering, delivering unparalleled performance for foundational drilling projects that demand precision, power, and versatility.
