Core drills are used when needing to core a hole in concrete slab after a pour or during a renovation. Drilling smaller holes in reinforced concrete, tile, masonry, or natural stone? Use a portable or hand held core drills or coring drills for concrete. For larger jobs consider a gas-powered or hydraulic coring drills that can be either bolted to the floor or used with a vacuum base to hold the core driller to the ground or on a wall. Coring drills is the perfect solution for coring holes between 2-20” diameters in concrete.

What is a Concrete Coring Drill?
Coring drills are heavy-duty core drills that can drill through metal, concrete, block and stone. Handheld coring machines can drill holes for running electrical conduit and plumbing pipes through walls and floors. Low noise and relatively dust free drilling makes it the ideal choice for coring needs. Core drills come with a base and some of them are handheld for portability.
Main Advantages of Core Drills:
Highly accurate drill holes in comparison to drill holes created by other methods.
Coring drills are faster since you are cutting out just the periphery of the hole and due to the lesser load these have longer service life.
Drill stands are ideal for drilling into concrete, bricks and building material.
Core drills can be used for wet and dry drilling.
Tips For Best Results For Coring Concrete:
Allow for the core bits to rest while coring to improve speeds and reduce burning. Water tanks help greatly when coring to ensure that your bits stay cool and at optimal temperature
If water is not available at the job site use dry coring bits
When working on an angled surface use a vacuum stand for better precision and improved control.
Barrel Bits can act as extenders to help you penetrate deeper into the surface if necessary
Diamond drill bits are ideal for most coring applications. Ensure compatibility between the bit and the surface you are coring.
Handheld coring machines are great for horizontal and vertical drilling and for tight spaces.
