In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is our largest 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 1,100W induction motor, there are 12 belt speeds between 150-2,700rpm. 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 3-16mm 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 and is robust enough for hard work in a busy workshop. 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. Arrives to you 95% assembled, so no heavy lifting required.
