125mm through stone(slate)wall
5 Aug 2012
By plumbermann
, Isle of Man
" I picked the higher wattage (1250w) version of this model and it paid off.
I put it through a grueling test coring 125mm on an 18" Manx Stone wall.
On another plus side it has a soft start motor, which ran on ok on the off-grid (Wind turbine battery bank) power inverter on site. So would be ideal on a small generator.

Clutch is rubbish
2 Mar 2013
By PowerRoofing

" Clutch comes in way too soon. I only drill holes up to 52mm and it is poor. Its not bad on stone but terrible on brick especially if there is any dampness. Got stuck halfway through a wall and took about an hour to get it out. Clutch just spinning. "
