Marcrist say their latest launch will make diamond drilling an affordable option for virtually every builder, plumber and electrician.
The first part of the system is the new CCU range of diamond core bits, for holes from 22 to 200mm diameters.
They will drill virtually every building material without water coolant – concrete, breeze blocks, bricks, engineering bricks and stone can all be drilled dry. They offer a typical lifetime of 200 to 500 holes.
The second part of the package is the high-torque, 1,500W DDM2 drill, featuring two-speed operation to provide the optimum cutting speeds for the diameter of hole being drilled, integral clutch, built-in RCD protector and oil-filled, long-life gearbox.
There is also an integral water swivel to allow users to tackle more demanding drilling jobs using a wet-grade drill core.
Marcrist say the diamond drill costs around 5p a day to run, while large-bore holes can be dry drilled for 10p.
