Ergonomic Rock Drills

Choosing a Rock Drill

The ergonomically designed BBD 15E and RH 572E, medium-weight rock drills with very high power-to-weight ratios, provide optimum operational safety and productivity.  These low-maintenance drills have high impact energy in relation to weight, and ergonomic features that improve operator comfort.

The BBD 15E and RH 572E are equipped with spring-dampened handles and highly effective silencers.  The result is reduction in vibration levels transmitted to the operator's hands by more than 75%, and reduction of low-frequency noise levels by 7 dB(A), or more than 50%.  Operator fatigue is minimized, raising productivity.

The RH 572E has rifle-bar rotation, with slower rotation and lower impact frequency, for drilling in hard rock.  This drill is ideal for minor bench drilling and other rock drilling applications, such as secondary drilling.

The lighter BBD 15E has ratchet-wheel rotation, with faster rotation and higher impact frequency, for drilling in soft to medium-hard rock.  The BBD 15E is designed for concrete drilling, drilling for smooth blasting and seam drilling - all of which require a high-performance, lightweight, easy-to-handle drill.
