When the Drill Strength 3 is attached to the front of a Rover it can be powered and used as a quick and easy way to tunnel through soil. Pressing the context keys (for PC: C or V, Xbox: Xbox One - LB or Xbox One - RB, PS4: PS4 - L1 or PS4 - R1, Switch: Switch - L or Switch - R) will toggle the drill on and off, depending on which side of the rover it is placed. Pressing either context key in the Tractor will turn the drill on or off, as it only has a single attachment slot on the front. If two drills or a drill and a Paver are placed on one side of a Large Rover, the context key will activate both at once. Tilting the camera angle controls the tilt of the tractor and drill, allowing tunneling upwards or downwards.

While running, the drill consumes 1 U/s of Power.

The size of holes dug with the drill changes with each vehicle, allowing for larger or smaller tunnels.

Attaching the Drill to a Crane allows the player to sit in the crane and easily dig out large holes.

Due to the drill's high digging speed, it is recommended to disable the drill when falling into an open cavern to avoid digging too deep into the ground.
