Hands Free Percussion Drilling

Hands-free percussion drilling is a method that minimises operator fatigue and percussive vibration to the operator. The simple design extracts dust to a vacuum hoover and protects against Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAV’s) by removing the operator from the percussive action.

Exposure to high levels of vibration has caused irreversible nerve-damage known as HAVS or ‘white finger’ and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), to thousands of employees across industries. With our hands free method this is eliminates any HAV exposure to the operator leaving them safe to work a full shift.

Benefits of hands-free Percussion Drilling

  • No HAVS risk. Eliminates vibration exposure by removing the operator from the percussive drill action.
  • No dust. Common dust-related diseases affecting construction workers include lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. The hands-free method uses a hollow drill bit and vacuum attachment to remove dust as you drill. Making drilling safer, cleaner and faster.
  • Cost effective. Using the hands free method the operator can do a full shift as they are not fatigued or exposed to HAV improving production.

Percussion drilling is perfect for projects that require rough-sided holes for resin anchors and mechanical fixings. For example, anchoring steel-framed structures or fixing dowel bars into concrete cast joints. This work can be carried out using either hand or hands free methods; the first being regulated by the HSE / HAV guidelines.

Why percussion drill?

  • Preferred method for anchoring resin dowel / starter bars.
  • Fast method for forming holes.
  • Cost effective solution yields high production.
  • Vertical or horizontal application.
  • Can be used with Air or Electric 110v power.
