Zagar Thruster Series

The Zagar Thruster Series Drilling Units are capable of meeting a wide variety of production requirements. Available in three basic thrust sizes, they offer a solid solution for drilling operations; requiring both rapid advance and controlled feed. The same unit features the choice of pneumatic or hydraulic operation, powered by a three- phase 230/460 V motor.
