History of the Coring in the Construction Industry
Coring is always a challenging assignment. At the point in time in which you’re coring on a job, the building typically lacks a lot of the needed power infrastructure to run high-draw equipment. This adds time to your process: locating outlets, running extension cords, and avoiding the trip hazards these create. Then, there’s the power limitations, the possibility of overloading breakers. Then you get to the coring itself: not for the faint of heart. As clutches wear and degrade over time, you start to feel more reactionary torque. Bits bind, and every contractor has a story about someone being taken for a ride when that spin transfers back to the operator.
Milwaukee Handheld Core Drill: Revolutionizing the Coring Process
The MX FUEL Core Drill resolves all the issues that you’ve come to expect with traditional options in this space. It redefines the coring experience in a cordless, handheld solution that has yet to be seen. Its clutch design helps you experience more control and feel less torque, providing a smooth coring experience, and the Auto-Stop™ feature prevents you from losing control of the drill in a bind up situation.
It also delivers high performance, the fastest drilling, with a performance gauge that coaches you to the optimized drilling pressure—so you can drill more efficiently. It has a 6” bit capacity, and enough power to core 6” holes in reinforced concrete. An LED level helps maintain accuracy throughout the application.
The runtime, too, is impressive.
With a 1 CP Battery, you can core:
- (9) 3” holes in block
- (5) 3” holes in 6” concrete slab
With 1 XC battery, you can core:
- (18) 3” holes in block
(10) 3” holes in concrete slab
Some additional features of the core drill:
- Integrated pressure gauge helps provide the more efficient drilling pressure to maximize productivity and runtime
- LED level ensures accurate holes when operating handheld
- An optional compact stand allows you to turn your handheld core drill into a lightweight, rig-mounted solution
- Onboard water connection allows for dry and wet coring applications
