CS Unitec has introduced a new portable hydraulic magnetic drill ideal for use in subsea applications and Ex Zones. With its 3.4 HP reversible motor, Model 2 1345 0010 produces an infinitely variable speed of 40-250 RPM.

This machine has a 12” stroke and can drill holes up to 4” diameter in structural steel and other metals. The drill has a Morse Taper 3 (MT3) chuck, allowing twist drilling up to 1-1/4” dia., tapping up to 1” dia., countersinking up to 2” dia. and reaming up to 1-1/8” dia.  Model 2 1345 0010 is ATEX Classified Ex II 2Gc IIB T5 for use in hazardous atmospheres.
The drill’s magnet is manually operated with a lever control. It will continue to maintain a magnetic holding force of up to 1874 lbs. on plate up to 3/8” thickness, even if the drill motor’s power supply is interrupted. At only 50 lbs., this drill is portable to the jobsite.
An optional pipe clamp (Part No. 2 1330 8500) allows for right-angle drilling of steel, cast iron, cement and plastic pipes up to 43-1/4” dia. with additional extension chains.
