Atlas Copco added four hydraulic-powered core drills by acquiring Lifton. The core drills are for free-hand use, but they can also be mounted on standard rigs, the company says. Four models are in the line, each weighing 18 pounds and requiring 5.3 gpm of oil flow. Model LCD 5, LCD 10, LCD 15 and LCD 24 feature non-kickback operation. The widest drill diameter range is 3 to 8 inches with a rotation speed of 600 rpm (LCD 5), and the narrowest is 0.5 to 1.2 inches at 2,400 rpm (LCD 24).
