Questions & Answers
5 questions

Does this drill come with the transport wheels?

This drill rig does include the wheels that are pictured in the photos above.

Do I need to buy adapters to fit different size drill bits?
What is the max size drill bit this machine will handle?

This will fit only drill bits with a 1-1/4"-7 threaded attachment. You can buy adapters here to fit any core bits that do not have that attachment.

This core drill can do up to a 10" diameter core drill

What do you suggest for an anchor bolt for horizontal drilling?

Drill a hole for the expander/anchor at a distance of 335 mm (13.2”) from the centre of the hole. Bolt down the base plate. Check carefully that the expander is secured correctly. The bottom plate can be adjusted to the surface by using the leveling adjustment screws. Use the feed handle.

What the warranty on this core drill? Hour of operation to cool down time ratio?

DM 280/DM 340/DM 650 core drill motors have a 2 year warranty. Wear items are not covered under warranty.

The cool down time ratio is dependent on the drill bit, material being drill, force used to drill, etc. There are too many variables to give an exact cool down time ratio.

To cool the core drill, run the machine unloaded for a minute or two to cool the motor. This will also blow dust and dirt out of the motor, ensuring longer life for the machine.

Can the drill be used separately from the stand?

The drilling machine can be separated from the stand but it does not have a handle. It is meant to be mounted to the stand for drilling but technically the motor is a separate piece of equipment.

Product is great.

by Christopher Rios

The drill is great. Packaging it came in was damaged. Could have used a more protective packaging. Other than that it great.
