DIAMOND PRODUCTS CB500-HH 2 Speed Hand Held Core Drill
Core Bore CB500-HH from DP is a hand held core drill, capable of drilling up to 3” diameter holes in concrete and other material. How can the new CB500-HH cost so much less than the WEKA DK12? You're giving up some power and flexibility but for drilling small diameter holes, it may be a better option. You wouldn't put a trailer hitch on a volkswagon right? The CB500-HH can be mounted to a core rig such as the M-4 but even then it is not designed to handle more than 3” holes. The gear box for the CB500-HH has only 2 speeds (1100 and 2200 RPM). This is good enough for small diameter drilling. We recommend the DP Weka Series for larger jobs.
For those that never intend on using the core drill for more than small holes, this light weight, low cost unit might be the answer you're are looking for. The unit also has a shoulder brace for added stability and feels like it was really designed for hand held use where as other units are a little heavier for mounted and large hole drilling.
