Husqvarna DM 540i – Handheld Core Drill

The DM 540i is a powerful battery drill motor optimised for handheld drilling of diameters up to 75 mm. It can be used in light reinforced concrete for both wet and dry drilling and other suitable materials include bricks and light weight blocks. DM 540i can be used with the DS 150 drill stand for drilling of diameters up to 100 mm and with built-in connectivity, you can easily monitor machine location, runtime, service intervals and receive wireless updates through FOTA (firmware over the air). Power is supplied by BLi-series batteries and the machine is compatible with Husqvarna BLi200/BLi300 batteries. Ease of use and exceptional ergonomic characteristics such as low weight and a well-balanced machine body make it an excellent choice for drilling underneath sinks, in narrow corners or other tight spaces. Other applications include plumbing pipes, electrical sockets, cables, ventilation and air conditioning installations.
