Automatic drilling system – doing the work for you.

The new automatic drilling unit, the AD 10, works in conjunction with Husqvarna’s drill motors and DS 450 drill stand to alleviate operator fatigue and injury while increasing performance.

"The AD 10 is based on completely new technology, allowing it to sense which Husqvarna model it's working with and to optimize the power supply for that particular model. That assures constant, high efficiency, better drilling precision and it is easier on the tool as well as the operator," says Lars Gustafsson, Product Head of Construction Equipment. 

AD 10’s features include:



  • Optimal drilling performance at all times, regardless of application. 
  • A variable speed of 0 – 10 ft/min, in both directions, making it the fastest product of its kind on the market.
  • While it moves, the unit can sense when the drill head has gone through the material and then automatically stops both the power supply and drilling.
  • The operator can comfortably remain upright instead of leaning/bending over to operate the drill; this is especially helpful when drilling holes over 6" in diameter. 

The unit is simple to operate and its light weight makes transporting easy. It snaps into place at any angle on the drill in a few seconds and is simple to maneuver. With the aid of a controller knob, the operator directs the feed rate, direction and power of the AD 10 and the drill.
