The Steelmax D1 PRO is an all purpose drilling machine for the steel fabricator that demands dependable and versatile production tools.  Lightweight and portable, this single-speed drill features a powerful 1020 watt motor capable of drilling with annular cutters up to 1-9/16” (40 mm) diameter holes through 2” (50 mm) thick material.  The optional three jaw drill chuck can be used with solid, twist drills up to 5/8” (16 mm) diameter.

The D1 PRO is equipped with the most advanced electromagnetic technology.  Using only 50% power when the motor is not under load, the Energy Saving Base (ESB) reduces excessive heat build-up and dramatically increases the operating life of the electromagnet.  Steelmax's Magnetic Field Shape Control (MFSC) system provides maximum holding power on thin materials.  The integrated Magnetic Power Adhesion Control Module (MPAC) detects the adhesive force of the electromagnetic base and prevents drill activation when there is insufficient adhesive power, protecting both the machine and the operator.
