Increased productivity

The 115V model can supply enough power and torque to drill through heavily reinforced material for increased production rates. A water-cooled, three-speed gearbox makes it easy to set the optimum drilling speed for drill bits with diameters from 2 - 16 inches. This means you’ll always be operating at ideal performance.


The motor has an ergonomically designed handle, and the quick disconnect feature on the motor and DS 450 drill stand make transportation and set-up a snap. The controls are also designed and positioned to enhance ergonomics and facilitate operation.


The drill is equipped with great features to help protect the operator and drill motor. The Elgard™ function significantly increases the motor’s operating life by protecting it from overload. Softstart™ slowly increases the motor RPMs, which reduces wear on the motor and brushes. Another helpful feature is Smartstart™, which reduces the speed of the RPMs to decrease vibrations when starting to drill.

DM 340

The DM 340 115V is perfect for heavy-duty core drilling applications where high production rates are needed, especially with large diameter core bits. It can be used for a variety of applications including water/waste evacuation pipes, channels for ventilation and plumbing, gas supply pipes, barriers, road signs and holes in corners for wall saw openings.
