Known for its lines of concrete drilling and doweling equipment, E-Z Drill offers a vertical drill tailored to gas utility companies. The Model 20 UTL saves valuable time and money by allowing companies to pinpoint the site of a gas leak without tearing out a significant stretch of roadway, according to the manufacturer.

By using the Model 20 UTL, utility companies can drill through the road surface in periodic intervals to check for gas. This enables workers to narrow the potential leak area to a stretch between holes that would need to be removed for repair work, rather than destroying a much longer length of road. While it is specialized for the gas industry, the Model 20 UTL can handle nearly any type of vertical drilling application.

The standard 18-in. (45.7 cm) drill depth can be significantly modified based on needs, with depths customized to several feet. Bit diameters range from 5/8 in. to 2½ in. (1.6 to 6.3 cm). A minimum of 100 cfm compressed air is required for operating the drill.

Quick coupler air fittings make short work of repairs, and a quick-release bit guide also saves time. The Model 20 UTL is designed for ultimate maneuverability, weighs just 207 lbs. (94 kg) and is supported by a 29-in. (73.6 cm) wheelbase. Since the frame absorbs vibrations, it reduces hand, arm and back injuries typically associated with handheld rock drills.
