100% of 100

The Nova Viking brings you the benefits of a ''smart'' drill press in a compact size that fits on your benchtop. It features onboard LED lights, laser crosshairs, and a smooth-running direct-drive motor that is controlled by a sophisticated microcomputer and digital screen with push-button controls. Digital Variable Reluctance automatically adjusts and maintains the speed and power of the machine based on resistance. That, coupled with the absence of belts and pulleys, results in a machine that is incredibly smooth and quiet. The computer lets the motor draw only as much power as is needed, saving up to 50% in energy usage over conventional motors. With its 1HP high torque motor, cast iron construction, exceptional structural strength and smart design, the Nova Viking is a great choice for drilling tasks in any shop where space is limited.

  • Direct drive motor is incredibly smooth with no pulleys or belts to vibrate

Amazing Drill Press!
Making this upgrade was one of the best decisions I made. The added safety features with the electronic depth stop makes this drill press awesome. It allows me to work one handed and the variable speed range is a real game changer.

What is the differences between the NOVA 83700 Viking DVR & the more expensive 58000?
Dennis on Jan 30, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Down load the manuals. There is a lot of differences. On the 58000 you have electronic charts, on the 83700 you have paper charts for speeds. There are other differences as well, spindle speed at the lower end on the 58000 is 50 rpm, on the 83700 it is 150, means no tapping, also doesn't have manual depth stop on 83700, screen is different, I do wish they had made the 58000 in a bench top with the larger head. HP is also different, forgot that.
