  • Core barrels and drill stands are shown for illustrative purposes only - not included in the price!
  • Read safety instructions and operation manual before use
  • Wear appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE)
  • Core drills and RCD are not waterproof (usually IP55)- keep them out of the water!
  • Core drills have big motors - ensure there is sufficient power available to run them
  • Do not use the overload protection as on/off switch - when the overload fails, it will not be warranty
  • Do not run off generators - they may not be 240 volt, 50Hz, or are usually too small for the drill
  • Use only heavy duty (2.5mm minimum but preferably or 4mm) extension cords and keep them as short as possible  (under 20m).
  • Use the right speed for the diameter of the barrel (see your manual or here)
  • Coring over 60-70mm diameter, most manufacturers recommend using a stand with your drill.
  • Only change gear when motor not running.
  • Put vacuums on a seperate circuit so as not to overload each circuit.

Incorrect power  - Do not run off generators
 - Extension cords too long

Motor turning but no power - clutch may need to be retightened to factory specifications.

Silica dust - when workers cut, crush, drill, polish, saw or grind products that contain silica, particles are created, which are one-hundredth of the size of a grain of sand. These can get  stuck deep in the lungs. 
Ensure precautions to limit exposure to dust are in place.
See the WA government's info on silica dust here.
