Percussion Drill Hire
Ideal for drilling into tougher materials
We have 13mm percussion drills available for hire nationwide. These power tools are high quality electric drills, with more powerful capabilities than standard rotary drills. They provide a faster and more effective way of drilling into hard materials such as masonry and steel.
Percussion drills produce a hammering action as they drill into material, which makes them more efficient and more powerful pieces of equipment. These drills have an internal mechanism with two geared disks which turn against each other and make the chuck move forward and backwards in a hammering action as the drill rotates. This is similar to a hammer drill, however percussion drills do not have a function that allows the hammer action to be used without the rotary action; as percussion drills produce the hammering action through the rotation of the chuck. Whereas the rotary function and hammer function of a hammer drill are initiated seperately, so the rotary action can be switched off and the drill can be used in hammer only mode.
Our percussion drills features a standard 13mm chuck, 2 mechanical gears and variable speed control, which allows you to operate the drill at a suitable speed for the material you are drilling. You can book a percussion drill hire online or over the phone and collect the drill from your local store, or we can deliver to you.
You must wear appropriate safety equipment whilst using a drill. We can supply Personal Protection Packs which give you safety goggles, safety gloves, dust mask and ear plugs.
Please note: These drills are 110v power tools, so you will need a transformer and extension lead to use them with a domestic 240v electricity supply. We can supply 3kVA transformers and extension leads. You can add these accessories to your order during checkout.
