Whether drilling behind the wheel on a truck frame or making installation holes in difficult to reach places, the performance of the Hougen HMD111 Portable Magnetic Drill is impressive. Its heavy-duty gears and powerful motor help get those tough holemaking jobs done faster. And at just 9.6kg, 170mm height, 210mm width and 295mm length it is easy to handle, anywhere.
Truck body builders have said that they are saving one to over two hours drilling time behind the truck’s rear wheels using the HMD111 portable magnetic drill over conventional frame drills. Contractors and maintenance people are also saving time drilling in hard to reach places where clearance is limited. The HMD111 portable magnetic drill maintains a constant low profile because of its patented rigid quill feed which also prevents tool vibration and eliminates gib adjustments.
The portable magnetic drill’s arbor design features bayonet-style push and turn tool mounting and uses RotaLoc Annular Cutters so you can change sizes in seconds without the need of any tools. There are 17 metric cutter sizes from 12mm to 27mm and 10 fractional sizes available from 1/2" thru 1-1/16". A 16mm diameter cutter will drill a hole through 9mm stacked plate in 45 seconds. And best of all, RotaLoc Cutters outlast and outperform conventional holemaking tools.
The unit features two feed handles and rear-positioned controls to optimize ergonomic operation. It has removable handles for drilling in extremely tight quarters. With the handles removed, a hex head allows use of a socket wrench for ratcheting the feed.
