Looks like a margarita blender for beach lovers. Just put a paint stirrer on the end and go!

Stihl has made one as well. The Amish builders around here as well as small chainsaw instead of circular saws.

That ban list is so ridiculous!!! That tool is banned from the country where it is probably made, China!
Actually it says its made in Japan, oh it's banned from being shipped there as well....

That's possible, just like cat-converters being installed on lawn mowers. But it will be a long time before they all disappear.

I think that is probably because it can't be imported into those countries due being two-cycle. Two-cycle engines may soon be banned here as well.
Good point! However I doubt China would ban anything simply because it pollutes the environment?

We use them allot. We have a couple different versions. The one listed we use for drilling holes in railroad ties. There is one that has built in coolant system and uses annular cutters and is used to drill holes in the railroad tracks. One uses spade bits, one uses regular drill bits. We use the gas powered impact wrench as well. We also have the gas axe but the one we have attached to the rail and it has an 125cc motor. Ohhh and we have all of these that are hydraulic powered as well. It's fun to have badass tools.

We used to have our maple trees tapped. They used a gas powered (Ryobi? - don't remember the brand) drill for the trees. The applications are likely heavy load and/or where you can't run a long extension cord.

Yes, but it would need a nitrous fogger system. :grin: Mike

I had someone drop in a few years ago to get an adaptor made to make a drill from a chain saw for tapping maple trees.
Not as fancy but worked.

Nitro Engine Powered Drill
Homemade....neat.....that's an unconventional build....dremel cutoff on the lathe, SMAW for thin sheet metal, but it worked....
It just needs a transmission, it's turning way too fast for drilling with that forstner bit or in steel.
(....and bolt that vice down!)
