GEAX drilling machines are distinguished by their compact size ideal for working in tight spaces and easily transported without special permits. But they are not the simple copy on a reduced scale of the largest traditional machines; they are carefully designed to brilliantly solve all the limitations that the reduction of size and weight involves.

The machines' particular articulation structure is similar to a normal excavator with a long boom supporting the mast. This allows a wide range of mast positioning and independent adjustment of the vertical position of the mast. Wire rope positions are not dependent on the position of the mast as the winches are mounted on the mast itself.

The design, compared to other machines, usually with parallelogram type mast supports, ensures excellent rigidity and lightness, more precise movements, fast setup time, wide range of tool positioning, simpler maintenance, and finally better visibility for the operator. The excavator base carrier, constructed to GEAX specifications, ensures excellent reliability and maintenance, with superior cabin quality in terms of ergonomics, comfort, and quietness generally not available on proprietary machines.  GEAX also retains the warranty of the carrier manufacturer worldwide.
