Special Drill Heads

Picote’s range of Special Drill Heads can be used to unblock pipes to make space for larger tools or used in conjunction with the original grinding chains as pilot bits to easily cut into tough blockages such as tree roots, grease and tuburculation.

The ridged drill heads allow for greater navigation through bends and even cast iron P traps.

A PVC Special Drill Head is also available – The safety ring gives the drill head the ability to be used in PVC, clay and lined pipes. This feature means more reliability with less risk of damage to the host pipe

Special Drill Heads can also be used to re-open connections when larger tools, like Twister, cannot fit through pipe or there are dimensional changes inside the pipe. The remaining edges can then be removed using the Smart Cutter.
