You can tell the new DM 400 / DM 430 apart from earlier Husqvarna drill motors just by looking at the exterior. The durable all-aluminium casing has a solid feel and a compact design to make it usable even when drilling in narrow corners. The carrying handle also works as a an impact guard and is easy to remove when needed, giving extra clearance in tight spaces.
“The new DM 400 / DM 430 are designed for rough handling and heavy drilling jobs” says Håkan Pinzani, global product manager for core drilling systems at Husqvarna. “But, they’re also very easy to handle in any drilling conditions you can think of. Truly dependable workhorses built to make the operator proud” he explains.
Equipped for usability and drilling performance
You’ll recognise typical Husqvarna features like the LED load indicator and the SmartStart (half speed) button,
and of course the quick connection to the new Husqvarna DS 500 stand, which is designed to fit perfectly together with DM 400 / DM 430. The three-speed gearbox makes it easy to adjust the RPMs for core bit diameters from 55 to 350 mm for DM 400, and 100 to 450 mm for DM 430.
Crafted for tough work
Inside the casing, the air-cooled heavy-duty electric motor is built to a tried and tested design, proven to withstand high loads without overheating. The long-life carbon brushes are easy to inspect and replace. To protect the motor and gearbox in case the drill bit gets stuck, Husqvarna DM 400 / DM 430 are equipped with two independent systems – a mechanical friction clutch and the Husqvarna Elgard™ electronic motor overload protection.
Husqvarna DM 400 / DM 430 are equipped with Embedded Connectivity – an enhanced version of Husqvarna Fleet Services™. It harvests and presents rich data analytics and insights into the health of your Husqvarna equipment, including key performance alerts. This technology allows continuous wireless updates of the machine’s software to keep it as smart and modern as possible.
Husqvarna DM 400 / DM 430 will be available to order from February 2020.
