The DM 540i is the latest addition to the i-series battery-powered range and is optimized for handheld drilling. Powerful, lightweight and with ergonomics, it allows for easier handling and a more productive working day while placing less physical strain on the user. The specially developed thin-walled Husqvarna drill bits provide a better utilization of the machine's battery power.
Built-in connectivity enables effortless onboarding and asset management in Husqvarna Fleet Services where you easily can monitor location, runtime, service intervals and receive wireless updates. The drill also comes equipped with a brushless motor.
“The new DM540i can be used outdoors or indoors and for wet and dry drilling,” said Håkan Pinzani, global product manager, core drilling. “At the same time, its ergonomic design, low weight and a well-balanced machine body deliver easier, more comfortable operation, making it an ideal choice for drilling in confined spaces or in tight corners or passages – and with fewer parts to service, operating costs and downtime are both reduced.”
DM 540i is part of Husqvarna’s i-Series battery eco-system. This means that its battery can be used on multiple Husqvarna products, delivering versatility and financial benefits, according to the manufacturer. Furthermore, without the need for power from the grid, productivity is optimized – something that is further enhanced by the fact that time-consuming set-up procedures are not required.
“Ergonomics, user convenience and a versatile battery system are only some of the characteristics that set DM540i apart from many other machines. Built-in connectivity means that location, runtime and service intervals can be easily monitored and wireless updates received. We believe that all these features represent an attractive harmony of that ‘great in the hand’ feeling with enabling tech,” Pinzani said.
