Minnich Manufacturing said that its machine-mounted drills are now available with a number of features engineered to increase safety and productivity in dowel-pin drilling applications, and are available in both hydraulic and pneumatic options.
Primarily used for full-depth repair, Minnich Manufacturing offers excavator or backhoe or skid steer-mounted units that suit horizontal patchwork jobs with a relatively long distance between the areas to be drilled. Apart from increased portability, the dowel-pin drills are also a safe alternative for operators, eliminating fatigue by using the carrier to transport the drill.
Minnich’s pneumatic machine-mounted drills are powered by a compressor, mounted to the counter-weight of the carrier or in the bucket of a backhoe, offering a self-contained solution for patchwork jobs. Many patchwork jobs require the work to be done in high-traffic areas, which make it of the utmost importance to use a highly mobile carrier and drill combination.
