Resi Drill ™ – Decay Detection Equipment

Resi Drill ™

A Resi Drill is also used to help determine the extent of internal decay present throughout the stem or buttress roots of a tree, based on the drilling resistance. A Resi Drill is used with a hand held drill and a spinning probe is inserted in to the wood. The device measures the resistance that the wood offers while drilling. The obtained data can be recorded electronically and then transmitted, evaluated and processed on a PC with special software. The measurement profile recorded whilst drilling provides information about the internal condition of the wood and decayed zones.
