Features and Benefits

  • The D220x300 S3 creates a small footprint, making the drill suited to tighter jobsites and allowing operators to move the drill in and out of jobsites quickly and easily.
  •  A pinnable, open-top vise enables passage of larger tooling and creates increased visibility for maintenance work.
  •  A sliding vise helps clamp the rod connection at different positions, allowing operators to utilize the vise for maximum efficiency when reaming or pulling product.
  • The drill can stage five rods at a time, minimizing jobsite time spent loading rod.
