    Nikko Tanaka Engineering U.S.A., Ltd. (Nikko Tanaka USA) today announced that it has introduced a new gas-powered drill, the TED-270PFR. Primarily designed for utility professionals, this new model replaces the TED-262R and features Tanaka's new 27 cc, 1.4 h.p. PureFire® engine.

    For maximum operator safety and comfort, the TED-270PFR contains a dual position, padded front handle; heavy-duty fuel tank protector / rear handle brace; and improved throttle lever. In addition, the TED-270PFR is equipped with a powered reversing lever which allows the operator to change drilling directions with minimal effort.

    "We are excited to introduce this drill which will help users get the job done faster with less fatigue," said Jeff Wright, vice president of sales and marketing for Nikko Tanaka USA. "For over 30 years, Tanaka has been the leader in gas drills and we are confident that this new model will continue to strengthen our position in this market."

    In addition to utility use, the TED-270PFR can be used as a planting drill which cuts installation time in half. Tanaka offers several optional planting bit diameters and lengths.

    The TED-270PFR comes standard with a keyed chuck, but an optional keyless check is also available. For complete specifications on this model, please go to
