Hougen Manufacturing has released the new HMD900 portable magnetic drill.
Hougen describes the HMD900 as “a powerful lightweight no frills mag drill” for general fabrication. The HMD900 incorporates operator safety functions and standard features, and is positioned as an affordable cost point tool for the low volume user.
The HMD900 includes a hidden motor cord design that incorporates the cord into the drills motor casing and housing, increasing safety and reducing maintenance. Powering the drill is a proprietary Hougen motor with an aluminum casing. The arbor system utilizes a 5/8″ slot drive for more rigidity, greater hole accuracy, spring slug ejection and quicker use of accessories such as drill chucks and countersinks.
The HMD900 also has a more robust housing design with an ergonomic carrying handle and a spot to hold the hex wrench. A safety switch built into the base of the magnet, shuts the motor off if the magnet disengages from the work surface.
The HMD900 weighs 27.7 lbs (12.6 kg), measures 15-1/8″H x 6-3/4″W x 11-3/S”L (384mm x 171mm x 289mm) and provides drilling capacities from 7 /16″ to 1-1/2″ (12 to 38mm) diameter and 2″ (50mm) depth of cut. The drill has an electrical rating of 9A and a 450 RPM motor.
