Handheld Light Weight Rock Drills

Choosing a Rock Drill

Combining power and maneuverability, the lightweight BBD 12 hand-held rock drill is the perfect partner in a wide variety of applications where maneuverability and easy handling are important.  Available in two models, one for horizontal drilling and one for vertical-down drilling, the BBD guarantees powerful, reliable and flexible operation.

Equipped with a D-type handle, the BBD 12D is ideal for horizontal drilling, plug hole drilling, and drilling concrete to a maximum depth of 3 feet.

For vertical-down drilling to 10 feet in depth, Atlas Copco offers the BBD 12T, fitted with a T-type handle, slightly angled to provide the best grip.  The BBD 12T is perfect for concrete driling, drilling for smooth blasting, and seam driling.  All BBD models are equipped with kick-latch type drill-steel retainers for quick and easy steel changing.

Ergonomic Rock Drills

The ergonomically designed BBD 15E, 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 is 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 7dB(A), or more than 50%.  Operator fatigue is minimized, raising productivity.

The 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, and easy to handle drill.
