The BDA brings all the advantages of the Blue Demon BD to air drilling. It’s a specially designed tool that substantially increases penetration rates and reduces costs in soft to medium rock formations.

When compared with ordinary drill heads with rotating bits, the BDA will cut up to twice the footage daily in soft shales, clays, shells, soft limestone, red beds and other rocks of low compressive strengths. In addition, it offers the following important features:

  • “Step” drilling pattern for fastest penetration
  • BD-2 Bits
  • Twin bits on outer surface for added protection
  • No independent moving parts to become clogged
  • Requires only a moderate weight for full
  • Precision machined head
  • Durable, trouble-free
  • Six sizes for drilling holes from 4½” to 1015/16
  • Choice of 23/8 “, 27/8“, 3½”, and 4½” API shanks (other threaded shanks on request)
