A product for exact positioning

Clean. The DM 220 has an integrated dust collection system where the same connections are used for both wet and dry drilling.
Husqvarna is now launching the DM 220, the first drilling machine with a totally new electronic system for exact positioning. The system guides the operator, increases precision, and through that, provides more efficient drilling. The DM 220 is equipped with LED indicator that show when the machine is in vertical or horizontal position. The system can also be calibrated so that the operator receives guidance for angled drilling. 

The positioning system makes it possible for the operator to focus on the actual drilling while at the same time being in control of the machine’s position via the LED indicators.

“The DM 220 is an easy-to-manoeuvre and ergonomic drill motor that gives the operator great user possibilities. The machine is adapted to all types of users – from beginners to professionals,” says Lars Gustafsson, Product Manager Construction Equipment, Husqvarna Construction Products.

The DM 220 has been developed with a clear focus on the user, and great emphasis has been put on the machine’s ergonomic properties. The rear handle is comfortable to hold when drilling and during transport. Together with the front handle, this gives the user ergonomic and well-balanced drilling. The machine’s front handle can be turned 360 degrees, which is useful when drilling in cramped areas.

The DM 220 has an integrated dust collection system where the same connections are used for both wet and dry drilling. 

Just like sister machine DM 230, the DM 220 has a modular design, which facilitates maintenance and repairs. The machine features several electronic solutions that give the user better control over the drilling process.

The built-in SoftStartTM function assures a smooth start. A SmartStartTM button can be pressed to obtain a lower RPM, which makes it easier to initiate drilling. The DM 220 has Husqvarna’s intelligent system against overload, ElgardTM.

With LED and pulse technology, the machine indicates optimal drilling as well as warns the user of an approaching overload. The machine will be launched in the autumn.
