TANAKA's new high-speed engine drill, the TED-262HS, easily drives through concrete, bricks and masonry.
Portable and lightweight, (4.5kg dry), this unit completes the TED range of Tanaka engine drills available from Parklands Power Products.
The Tanaka two-stroke 26cc 1.3hp(1.1kW) engine runs through an 8:1 reduction ratio gearbox, to give an output speed of 1250rpm max. The front handle may be mounted on either side of the unit, for added on-site flexibility.
The Walbro diaphragm carburettor allows the drill to be used in any position. Options include a half-inch (12.5mm) chuck, which will accept a wide variety of wood, steel and masonry drill bits, or a water swivel, which reduces friction, heat and dust when concrete core drilling.
The TED-262HS is capable of taking core drills of up to 100mm diameter.
While Tanaka's sound reduction system (SRS) significantly reduces engine noise, the commercial engine has two piston rings, and a stress relieved, chrome-plated cylinder for long service life.
Safety features include an automatic centrifugal clutch, which prevents dangerous "wind up", and a kill switch for instant engine shutdown.
