Portable Rock Drill for paleomagnetic sampling (DISCONTINUED PRODUCT)



The new MMPRD is a purpose built lightweight portable drill weighing only 4.8 kg (10.5 lbs) powered by a quiet, easy starting, powerful, reliable but lightweight 27cc two-stroke motor driving one of our hard-wearing water lubricated diamond tipped drill bits. The lightweight motor develops 1.0kW (1.3 HP). The MMPRD is controlled by a convenient finger trigger on the rear handle and there is a button operated lock to keep the throttle partially open when starting from cold. The front handle can be left or right hand mounted and the fuel tank has a large capacity allowing long periods of uninterrupted drilling.

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


Wide selections of suitable diamond core bits up to 4” in diameter are available at competitive prices. Non-standard core bits can be supplied at short notice.
