ESCO Pipe Milling Tool Gets New 1800W Electric Motor

HOLLISTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2012) - ESCO Tool has introduced a heavy-duty I.D. clamping pipe milling end prep tool that is now offered with an electric motor for performing heavy-wall preps at metal fabrication shops or on-site.

The Prepzilla MILLHOG® Electric I.D. Clamping End Prep Tool features robust construction with dual-opposed tapered roller bearings, direct-drive gears, a rigid blade lock system, and TiN coated T-15 tool steel cutter blades. Now offered with an 1800W motor that operates on 110/230VAC, this pipe machining tool needs only one mandrel and eight sets of clamps for pipe from 1.5" I.D. to 8.62" O.D.

Designed to bevel, face, and bore all hard pipe alloys, the Prepzilla MILLHOG® Electric I.D. Clamping End Prep Tool is supplied complete with all clamp ribs and pads, a hose and filter, lubricator, and a metal carrying case. For users who have the standard pneumatic Prepzilla MILLHOG® and want to convert to electric, the changeover only requires four bolts.
