The Hilti DD 160 diamond coring system performs in rig-based wet coring work on concrete walls and floor decks, including drilling holes in diameters up to 8 in. (20 cm). The system’s simplicity and self-explanatory design allows for jobs of all kinds to be completed quickly with exceptional ease, according to the manufactuerer.

The DD 160 features power control LED lights to help inexperienced users achieve the optimum rate of drilling progress and maximum core bit life under all conditions.

Powerful, compact and easy to handle, it’s ideal for drilling penetrations for pipes of all kinds — through-holes for ventilation ducts or cable installations and blind holes for large diameter anchors, reinforcing bars and the installation of railings and barriers.

Due to its powerful 2200W motor and 3-speed gearing, the DD 160 ensures performance across its entire core bit range, according to the manufacturer.

A choice of two different drill stands adds to the system’s versatility. The basic version is equipped with a compact base plate for anchor fastening. The premium stand offers great adaptability due to features such as a tilt mechanism and vacuum base plate for convenient vacuum fastening. No matter which drill stand you choose with a total weight of 36 lbs. (16 kg) basic — or 47 lbs. (21 kg) premium — the DD 160 is one of the lightest core rigs in its class.

To further support quality performance, the DD 160 is backed by Hilti lifetime service, a service agreement that includes two years of no-cost coverage.
