The inventors of the portable magnetic drill press continue their commitment to producing the highest quality USA made magnetic drills with the release of their new HMD130 Ultra Low Profile Magnetic Drill. The Hougen HMD130 ($837) is the ultimate combination of power and compact design.
Its predecessor, the Hougen HMD115, had a 6-11/16” height and a ¾” depth of cut. Users who needed a 1” depth of cut would have to move up to the slightly larger HMD150 ($725, clearance price). Now, the HMD130 joins the 1” depth of cut but in the same compact height as the HMD115. The HMD130 packs a powerful 8 Amp 115V motor that can power through 1” depth holes up to 1-3/8” in diameter and high torque gearing for long lasting power and minimal maintenance. It also features a pilot light for clear visibility and weighs only 23.8 lbs.
The 1” base has a 2165 lb. dead lift rating and 735 lb. breakaway limit. The quill feed arbor allows for smooth cuts and minimal vibration The HMD130 uses the same 3/4″ Rotoloc and 1″ Rotoloc Plus annular cutters and comes with a carrying case, Slick-Stick Lubricant, and safety strap. It also features a mounted carrying handle.
The HMD130 will be shipping in February but can be pre-ordered now. If you want to learn more about all the Hougen Mag Drill, head over to Ohio Power Tool or give us a call at 800-242-4424 let our expert staff answer all your questions!
