The Minnich A-1CL dowel pin drill is a lightweight, on-slab, high-production drill that offers horizontal, vertical and 35-degree stitch and skewed drilling positions. The drill is maneuverable but without a formal steering system.
Known as the Single Gang Minni, the drill saves contractors time through faster, more accurate drilling while ensuring that projects run safely and smoothly.
The A-1CL reaches a maximum drill depth of 18-in. with an under-collar drill steel length of 24-in.. The drill requires 92.2 SCFM and 120 PSIG of pneumatic power. All specs correspond with the 48-in. model but 36-, 30- and 24-in. drill widths are available.
Early 2023, Minnich Manufacturing announced that they redesigned the A-1C dowel pin drill to offer concrete contractors the same performance at a more affordable price. “We’re excited to offer a quality drill for customers who need a basic option. We’re proud of our higher-end products, but some road-building contractors simply don’t need all the bells and whistles that accompany them. The A-1CL is for them,” says Rob Minnich, president and CMO of Minnich Manufacturing. “The Minnich quality our customers know and love is still there, just with fewer features than the original A-1C.”
The A-1CL dowel pin drill is an on-slab drill that offers horizontal, vertical and 35-degree stitch and skewed drilling positions. The drill is maneuverable but does not include a formal steering system. The A-1CL nomenclature refers to its lightweight design, weighing in at 350-lbs.

Concrete dowel pin drilling is an integral part of road construction projects. For these jobs, the dowel pin drilling component must move along safely and in a timely manner.
