What do you get when you combine a best-in-class multipurpose Drill Head, efficient angle drilling capability, Engine Tilt, and a turbo-charged Tier 4 Final engine, all in a compact package?..and did we mention it requires less than 13 ft. of overhead clearance?  The Acker REBEL.  The ultimate in power and versatility in an affordable, compact package.  There's nothing else like it.
What separates the REBEL? 
Turbo-Charged Tier 4 Final Engine.
Drill Head offers "Best of Both Worlds" for high-torque needed for augering and high RPM
needed for coring, making it the preeminent multipurpose drill rig.​
5 ft. [1.52 m] Dump Mast and Engine Leveler allow it to angle drill and drill on slopes up to
a 45 degree incline.
Various options and configurations.
