What is it?

A versatile orthopedic drill

The DrillCover PRO System is a durable hardware drill that is fully sealed by the DrillCover PRO linen making it a 100% sterile, battery-powered orthopedic drill at an affordable price.

The DrillCover PRO System is a modular system that allows veterinarians to choose the different components based on the types of procedures they perform most. Over time when additional procedures are being performed, other attachments can be purchased.

Who is it for?

The DrillCover PRO System is the ideal drill for clinics that are starting out in orthopedics and are planning to expand their orthopedic capacity over time.

The DrillCover PRO system is ideal for the mobile surgeon to reduce the required number of power tools required. This means lower inventory costs, fewer items to pack and less equipment to clean.

Why should you use it?


The DrillCover PRO technology gives veterinary surgeons the power and confidence to perform any sterile orthopedic procedure with ease and precision.  The drill has been carefully selected to matches the speed, torque, and ergonomics of a surgical drill to provide the perfect cost-saving alternative.

The system allows for an exceptional precision, which is important if dealing with small and fragile bones, cannulation, switching between reaming and drilling modes, and quick exchange of half-moon shaped AO drill bits as well as Hudson or Zimmer quick-connect drill bits and reamers.
