Hougen's HMD130 ultra low profile magnetic drillClick image to enlarge

Hougen has introduced an ultra low profile lighweight and compact magnetic drill, the HMD130.

It’s small enough to drill in places where even hand held electric drills can’t go, yet with the power to cut holes up to 1-3/8 ub, diameter through materials up to 1 in. thick.

Featuring Hougen's bayonet-style twist and lock cutter mounting system and a height of just 6-11/16 in., the HMD130 portable magnetic drill was designed for fast, efficient holemaking in confined spaces yet powerful enough for general steel fabrication. A powerful Hougen motor, heavy-duty, high-torque gearing along with the use of Hougen's RotaLoc Plus annular cutters combine to allow for a broad range of applications including general fabrication, truck frame modification, plant maintenance and on-site assembly and installation projects.

The HMD130 weighs just 23.8 lb and has an electric rating of 115 V, 50/60 Hz and 9-Amps. The motor operates from any standard 115/120 volt power source and develops 450 no-load rpms. The gearing ratio complements the motor's power for reliable RPMs and uniform SFM, allowing high feed rates even through long cuts, large diameter holes and tough materials.

The magnetic base has a 1,200 lb dead lift rating on 3/8 in. plate and 2165 lb. on 1 in. plate. Drill point breakaway limits are 500 lb (3/8 in. plate) and 735 lb (1 in. plate). The unit is equipped with a removable feed handle for ratcheting the feed in extremely close quarters.

For safety the drill incorporates Hougen’s exclusive features to insure a safe work environment—including a no-adjustment safety switch, which shuts down the drill motor if lift of the magnetic base is detected...plus an LED indicator that monitors this sensor and alerts if the switch is not engaged. A two stage power on switch prevents drill rotation unless the magnet has first been engaged, and, in the case of a power interruption, safety circuitry will keep the drill motor off after power is restored until the start button is manually depressed.

The HMD130 has a rigid quill feed arbor, which prevents tool vibration, eliminates gibs, slide/way adjustments and maintenance while providing a constant low profile. Each drill unit is complete with a sturdy plastic carrying case and carrying handle. The HMD130 is made in USA.
