Using E-Z Drill’s new Model 20 UTL drill, utility companies can drill through road surfaces at intervals to check for gas, narrow leak areas to a stretch between holes, and reduce the amount of pavement that must be removed to make a repair. Although designed for the gas industry, the 207-pound, pneumatic Model 20 UTL can handle many vertical drilling needs. The standard 18-inch drill depth can be customized to reach several feet deep. Drill bit diameter ranges from 5/8 inch to 2 ½ inches. The motor requires at least 100 cubic feet per minute of compressed air.
