Advantages of the Pandrol Self-Feed Rail Drill


Money saving

Save time and cost with the Self-Feed Rail Drill’s quick set-up process and fast drilling time. This tool requires less labour and less track downtime.



Ensure consistently precise drill boring with the Pandrol Self-Feed Drill’s automatic feed and accurate arrowhead inserts.


Easy transportation

Carry and position the Self-Feed Rail Drill with ease thanks to its lightweight construction. The entire drill weighs just 31 kg (68 lbs).



Drill a range of rail profiles without the expense of extra parts thanks to the versatility of the Self-Feed Drill’s double-sided templates. Similarly, because the insert holder can be used for a range of insert sizes, it does not require changing to drill holes of different sizes.


Reduced maintenance costs
