This is a medium sized, floor standing Trade pillar drill. Very robustly made from cast iron and machined steel giving high strength and stability. It has a highly accurate chuck spindle assembly, running in NSK ball race bearings. The quill housing is a good fit within the headstock casting, giving consistent drilling. Powered by a smooth running 750W induction motor, there are 12 belt speeds between 120-2,580rpm. The Japanese made belts are of the multi-vee type, chosen for maximum grip and the lowest level of vibration. The belt cover also has a safety switch to prevent the drill being run with the cover open. The down feed is via a one-piece cast iron handle with soft rubber grips and there is an accurate drilling depth control. A quality 1-16mm keyless chuck is fitted. The chuck guard is electrically interlocked for safety and is easily adjustable for height. The switch system has a separate locking emergency stop switch, plus there is a switch for the integrated LED work light. Table height is controlled via a rack and pinion system; the whole table assembly can be swivelled away to allow the base to be used as a work support. This trade rated pillar drill offers many unique features but is quite compact in size. If you are looking for a bench mounted model of similar size, please refer to product code 102553. A great choice for any trade or school workshop looking for a great performing floor standing pillar drill. Please note, this machine must be bolted to the floor for safe working.

Excellent!I've been using one of these in the workshop today. It's very solid, there is no run-out on the spindle, the range of speeds is great. Min speed on ours says 150rpm rather than 120 listed here - but it's plenty slow enough either way, even for hole saws. It has bags of torque.
