Drill bits from Metabo feature solid carbide head

Bits reduce vibration, drills more precise holes


Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has introduced a new carbide-tipped SDS-Plus drill bit for use in a variety of concrete, masonry and stone applications. The Ultra-X drill bit features a 4 x 90º unique solid carbide head that reduces vibration and drills more precise holes than other bits on the market.

Designed for optimal drilling performance in reinforced concrete, the bit’s flute design prevents lock-up when rebar is encountered and quickly removes dust through its short, wide channels.

The Ultra-X has a chisel-shaped bit head that penetrates material rapidly as well as various design characteristics that contribute to faster drilling, extended bit and tool life and ease of operation. The one piece 4-cutter solid carbide head offers optimal performance in reinforced concrete, while its optimized flute core strength maximizes impact and bit strength.

Bit diameters range from 3/16” to 9/16” with drilling depths from 2” to 16”.
