Drill Arena

In the drill arena you’ll see 13 drills being showcased around the arena to see what’s new on the market. A live interview from the cab will take place so each company can tell you exactly what you need to know about the machine. Each drill will be displayed at the bottom of the drill arena right by the entrance to the show if you want a closer look.
