Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at Soosan America LLC is always focused on providing our customers a simple and low cost drilling solution. With this in mind, we introduced the JD-1400E-II Rock Commander, the JD-800ENC Rock Commander, and then followed up with the JD-800E-II Rock Commander. These three models fill the needs of the majority of rock drilling professionals.

When looking for a new drill there are three things that a drill customer needs to consider. These are reliability, price, and parts availability. When considering reliability, it should be noted that the Rock Commander utilizes proven components including the Yamamoto Drifters, Cummins Engines, Bosh-Rexroth and Kawasaki Pumps, and GHH-Rand Air-ends. When comparing price, it is easy to see that the Rock Commander line’s pricing falls well below the competition without sacrificing quality. Regarding parts availability, we pride ourselves in having an extensive parts inventory available in Louisville, KY. We understand that downtime waiting on parts is lost revenue, and we will do everything in our power to make sure you are up and running.

We believe the smartest thing in a rock drill is the operator. There are no onboard computers or expensive PLC units to fail and cost you downtime. Simple systems equal simple maintenance and when there is a problem, troubleshooting does not require a laptop and a technician. Your current mechanics can maintain the Rock Commander drills with ease.

With 35 years of experience in the rock drilling industry Larmee Equipment & Supply, Inc., the parent company of Soosan America LLC, lends its knowledge and experience to continuously improve systems and applications related to the drilling industry. We value our customers’ needs and opinions, and took those into careful consideration before introducing the Rock Commander line of drills.
