Heavy Duty Drilling


Drills from Diamond Vantage, Inc. have a stable platform for drilling.
Drills from Diamond Vantage, Inc. have a stable platform for drilling.
Two drills from Diamond Vantage Inc. in Grandview, Mo., are “far more substantial machines” for heavy-duty drilling, says Graeme Gilmour, president and CEO.

In the past, contractors have had problems with motors failing while drilling in hard materials, he says, adding that his drills won’t have that problem.

“Motors will burn up when you’re asking them to do more than they’re designed to do. That’s not going to happen to ours,” Gilmour says. “This is the last machine they will have to buy.”

The drills also have a stable platform for drilling, he says. “For the professional, these are far sturdier than any machine he will buy.”
