Husqvarna launches an automatic drilling system.

Husqvarna is launching the AD 10, a product that lets the drill motor do the work instead of the operator. The new automatic drill system is in a class of its own as regards speed, ergonomics and intelligence.

Take your drilling to the next level

Easy. With a quick connection plate, the AD 10 is easily mounted to the DS 450 drill stand.
Now all drilling professionals can stretch their backs in comfort. The AD 10 drilling unit, in conjunction with Husqvarna’s drill motors and drill stand, offers an automatic, efficient drilling system. No manual work is needed to move the drill along the drill stand.

The operator can stand comfortably upright when using it, without having to keep turning. With a variable speed from 0-3.2 m/min in both directions, the AD 10 is the fastest product of its kind on the market. It assures efficient drilling, but also means that the drill crown and drill core back quickly out of the material.

“The AD 10 is based on a completely new technology, allowing it to sense which Husqvarna model it’s working with, and to optimise the power supply on that basis. That assures constant, high efficiency, better drilling precision and is easier on both the tool and operator. The user can achieve more, with less effort”, says Lars Gustafsson,

Product Head of Construction Equipment, Husqvarna Construction Products. 

The AD 10 has been developed with a clear user focus. The unit is simple to mount and manoeuvre.

In a few seconds, it snaps firmly in place at any angle on the drill. With the aid of a regulator, the operator controls the speed, direction and power of the AD 10 and the drill it is mounted on. AD 10 senses when the drill head has gone through the material and then automatically stops both the power supply and the drilling.

The AD 10 has a compact design and weighs only 3.6 kg. The AD 10 is expected to be on the market this summer.
