The Toha Heavy industries Powergrinder is a specialized construction machine that is specifically engineered to drill massive holes or corridors using an industrial coring drill.
The vehicle stands 10 stories tall, and is capable of utilizing a 30-meter diameter bore bit to create tunnels. The vehicle is most commonly used in tunnel construction, surface mining and aggregation or in cording existing structures such as building foundations or other solid bases for construction.
The extendable drill core is capable of drilling to depths of up to 300-meters before requiring the addition of additional shafts to continue boring. With extensions and counterweights, this distance can be expanded to a staggering 3,000-meters. The vehicle can bore horizontally or through any angle up to a vertical (downward) 90-degree arc. The vehicle is mobile, utilizing four heavy duty self leveling legs for transport.
