Recently Hougen overhauled their line of magnetic drills with updates to most of their models and the addition of the new HMD905 ($1185). We thought this new mag drill had the potential to becoming their most popular drill as it is about the same size/weight as the HMD904 and while it doesn’t add a ton of capacity it does add 2 speed for more precision in drilling. It also features a very slick built in coolant tank which is normally a $100 add-on to the HMD904 ($845) however the bottle currently comes FREE from Ohio Power Tool.
The price difference however seems too big of a hurdle for some to get past and with all the updates to the HMD904 folks are pretty happy. This promo may tip the scales in favor of the HMD905 with a mail-in offer for a FREE fabricators kit which includes: 5 cutter kit 12002 ($224), adapter 08186 ($46) and 1/2” drill chuck 10731 ($87). Of course this is a limited time offer which expire at the end of April. Changing chucks on the Hougen HMD904 & HMD905 (pretty much the same) is very easy, check out the video below.
