This highly versatile, fully cordless battery drill motor is perfect for who regularly work in cramped or limited spaces, but wish to do so without being encumbered by trailing electrical cables, hydraulic hoses or being exposed to hazardous fumes.

Its compact and ergonomic design is intended to enable it to be close to the body for maximum operator control.

It has a lower rotational energy through a permanent magnetic motor in combination with advanced motor control, stopping the motor quickly in the event that the drill gets stuck. This makes the drill easier to operate and manage the power in the handles created by the stop torque and avoids snatching which can result in personal injury.

The DM540i is suitable for indoors and outdoors use alike, wet or dry, either handheld for free-drilling applications or rig mounted for more demanding drilling duties.

For the best and most efficient drilling results, it is recommended for use with one of the range of specially developed Husqvarna thin-walled diamond core bits which provide an enhanced drilling experience, drilling faster and producing a smoother cut.

The DM540i features built-in connectivity which allows the operator to monitor location, runtime, service intervals and receive wireless updates, whilst its in-house developed, advanced brushless motor is 25% more efficient than a standard brush motor, which means that the motor produces a high and consistent torque.
