Cub handheld drilling solutions have been proven for coal drilling, roof bolting, water infusion, test holes and blast holes in coal and similar formations. Other applications, derived from practical experience, continuously increase Cub’s application in railways, water board and electricity, or wherever compressed air is available.
Simplicity of design and strong lightweight manufacture ensures:
- Increased reliability.
- Lower maintenance costs.
- Reduced spare part reliance and associated costs.
- Increased drilling distance for your money.
- Low vibration.
- Low noise output
Variable Rotation Speed
Rotation speed can be varied from zero to maximum revs using the trigger control handle. This allows the operator to adapt to varying conditions.
Alminco Cub is designed and manufactured with lightweight casing and motor to reduce its mass.
Gear Lock Safety Mechanism as Standard
Cub includes a gear locking mechanism, which permits easy undoing and exchange of drill chucks. This is also exteremely helpful in the case of jammed rods having to be freed in an anticlockwise rotation.
Cub’s innovative ergonomic design brings the centre of gravity closer to the operator. This greatly improves operator safety, stability and productivity.
A centrifugal governor is integral to the design of the Cub. The governor prevents over-speed and decreases wear of gears.
Safety and Reliability
All drive unit bearings are permanently lubricated and sealed. The tough polyurethane elastic housing protects the machine and noise is considerably reduced by the inclusion of internal baffles.
Optimal Gear Rating
Cub’s gear rating has been selected to optimise torque and speed; both starting and break-out torque remain in non dangerous limits.
