When drilling gas-leak detection and extraction holes, save the operator’s body and let the machine take the abuse. The Hornet™ utility drill from Minnich offers an ergonomic solution. Featuring a patent-pending design, The Hornet absorbs drill vibrations, reducing operator fatigue and increasing productivity. The unit feeds the drill in and out of the hole, allowing the operator to stand in an upright position. Compact, lightweight and easy to move, The Hornet is ideal for drilling through a variety of materials including concrete, asphalt, brick and dirt.
