A recent development mainly used for crossings on pipelines is the availability of a rock head with roller cutters, which will cut rock up to 200Mpa. The hydraulic jacking force is supplied from a 135hp diesel engine via a standard gear box and slip clutch designed to prevent the machine overturning if obstructions are encountered. The choice of head is dependant on the severity of the rock, bedding planes, fracturing and mixed face conditions. Available jacking force is 250 tons and available torque is 164,000 Nm.
