“The versatility of DM 650 makes it suitable for all kinds of drilling. It is basically the only machine a
drilling professional would need”, says Lars Gustafsson, Global Product Manager, Husqvarna Construction
The electric drill motor is a part of Husqvarna’s PRIME product range – the new generation of high
performance technology for electric cutting equipment. It has a high output and can be operated on
both 3-and 1-phase. It delivers 6 kW on the spindle on 3-phase and 3 kW on 1-phase. It weighs only 14 kg,
which gives it an outstanding power-to-weight-ratio. With the torque boost, speed is reduced in order to
increase drilling torque when encountering steel reinforced substrates.
“We always want to offer our customers top-performing products with high usability that facilitate
their work operations – DM 650 does just that. It is a powerful drill motor perfect for a wide range of hole
dimensions”, says Lars Gustafsson.
DM 650 is ideal for all core drilling, from 100 mm to 600 mm diameters. The 18-step adjustable rpm
range ensures optimal speed for all drill bit dimensions. The drill motor, recommended to be used with
the corresponding Husqvarna DS 450 stand, performs effectively when operating on reinforced concrete,
brick and other building materials. It is well suited for heavy-duty applications like water evacuation,
ventilation and plumbing channels and gas supply pipes.

Durable design for longer product life

DM 650 is equipped with advanced electronic overload protection, Elgard™. The system makes drilling
at maximum pressure possible, without risk of overloading the machine. DM 650 also features LED load
indicators, which guide the operator to attain optimal performance.
DM 650 runs with the separate PP 65 power pack, which is also compatible with the electric K 6500
power cutter and K 6500 Ring ring cutter. It is a versatile and air-cooled electric power unit, suitable for
surroundings where minimum water usage is required. The digital menu and display makes it easy for
the operator to keep control of usage and to plan for service and maintenance. Keeping the power pack
detached from the drill motor keeps it less exposed to dirt and vibrations, ultimately resulting in longer
product life.
