Drill runs off tractor hydraulics
Designed to connect to virtually any tractor hydraulic system under 2,000 psi and 6.5 gpm, the new hydraulic drill develops up to 4 hp. driving potential, far beyond the strength of an ordinary electric drill.
"A key advantage of a hydraulic drill is that it never heats up because of the continual flow of hydraulic fluid through it, unlike electric drills which get hot doing heavy jobs," notes Schultz.
The 17¢ lb. drill is fitted with a spring-loaded on-off trigger and brakes instantly when shut down. It'll work under virtually any conditions, even under water. It's equipped with a rugged 3/4-in. Cushman drill chuck and is variable speed in forward or reverse. Its Eaton Char-Lynn motor runs at speeds up to 540 rpm's. It can be used for any power application where a drill chuck fits a power shaft ù such as raising a silo unloader or elevator ù or the chuck can be removed for pulley or gear application with its standard 5/8-in. shaft. The company is also working on other attachments.
"You can take it anywhere and it's virtually maintenance-free," says Schultz. The new drill sells for $350.
