Portable Rock Drill for paleomagnetic sampling

lightweight drill

The new MMPRD is a purpose built lightweight portable drill weighing less than 5 Kg, powered by a quiet, easy starting, powerful, reliable but lightweight 30cc two-stroke motor driving one of our hard-wearing water lubricated diamond tipped drill bits. The lightweight motor develops 1.2kW (1.6 HP). The MMPRD is controlled by a convenient finger trigger on the  handle.  The drill has a 5:1 reduction gearbox giving a maximum drilling speed 1700 rpm, ideal for drilling geological samples with a 1″ diamond corer.

The MMPRD comes complete with a pressurised water container and quick release stainless steel hose fittings.

Wide selections of suitable diamond core bits up to 40mm outside diameter are available at competitive prices. Non-standard core bits can be supplied at short notice.
