“ Asquith “ made the OD1 which was a lighter drill weight wise but with the same capacity as the drill you had your eye on. That was built like a tank, I’m not sure that degree of over engineering is strictly necessary. The OD 1’s had a number 5 Morse taper spindle so they are plenty big enough. They were made in the thousands and sent all over the world. They’re a bullet proof design as anyone who’s worked one will tell you. Maybe you could find one over there ?I don't want to use riggers, worried about the weight of the forklift and drill damaging my floor, 6" with rebar?
My other concern is my location, getting a loaded semi into my property, no concrete, just crappy clay soil!
Thanks for all the replies, probably just going pass on this machine and look for a smaller model......
