The light weight 99 lbs. (45 kg.) (dry and without options) of the Ultra-Drill makes it easy to maneuver into place by one or two men.
The Ultra-Drill uses standard HSS flat-beaded bits or Cobalt tapered shank twist drill bits. Vertical hole centers can be determined by using the universal height adjustment or rail specific position blocks.
Drill Through Joint Bars
One of the few rail drills on the market that has enough shaft length to drill through joint bars.
The Ultra-Drill is capable of drilling from 80-lb. (36 kg.) to 175-lb. (79 kg.) (rail including crane rail) with optional attachments. The cam-locking clamp arm allows for quick and easy attachment to the rail.
The continuous automatic feed insures a smooth drilling action that produces a consistent hole through any rail and long bit life. The drill also has a high-ratio hand crank feed for quick retract and set-up.
