This small electric drill is even slower than the burner drill, but significantly lower pollution produced for a set amount of resources extracted.
Simpler logistics due to lack of fuel requirement.
80 of them needed to fill a full yellow belt with resources.

Please note that while this drill is more pollution efficient vs a normal electric drill without modules, it loses in all aspects when the electric drill has Effi1 modules inside! It also has the disadvantage of only mining the 2x2 area below it, instead of 5x5
Switch all your mining from this to normal electric miners as soon as you have the Efficiency 1 modules ready to be inserted, or nearby aggressive Deathworld biters have been... pacified.
