Sherwood's 1125W Floor / Pedestal Drill Press is the big hitter of the range - we're talking industrial power!
The major problem people face with under-specced drill presses - and to be completely honest, it's quite common that people over spec on drill presses as well, so we recommend looking at our smaller 750W models before you buy - is that if you're using them for extended periods of time, they can overheat on harder woods. It's because when you're drilling deep into hard surfaces, the amount of heat you generate would overcook a steak and it puts a lot of stress on what is generally a smaller motor.
This is where our 1125W models come into their own. These are built to run all day on hardwoods and come out the other side a lot cleaner and cooler than you will. Not that they're a pain to use, though. We've been using one of these in our workshop and the vibration-controlling heads do a phenomenal job of ensuring accurate holes when our hands or attention spans just aren't up to task.
It makes the whole process a lot easier on you, which is exactly what a drill press is for. The four-pole motor means it runs more efficiently, making our 1125W model more powerful than some of it's seemingly larger competitors, while the large swing will enable you to take on bigger projects, making this a drill press for life in more ways than one.
5-year warranty, 17in Swing, 5-20mm Chuck & a 12-speed, four-pole motor, all for less than $900. That's the Sherwood difference.
