Advantages Quick charge battery, charge indicator, more powerful than 12V models.
Disadvantages Neighbours and frineds will want to borrow it.
Does the word ‘drill’ send shivers down your spine because of its association with dentistry?You will be relieved to know then, that this review is about a DIY power drill for drilling holes in anything but teeth.
I must be the only person for miles around; lazy enough to use three separate power drills whilst building the framework for my shed. Two corded drills, one with the drill bit for drilling holes, a second, with the counter-sink, and a third, a cordless drill with a posi-drive bit in it to screw the wood together.Believe me it saved a tremendous amount of time and energy. I could have used one drill for the whole project, but changing the bits for each task was time consuming.
The price included an 18Volt cordless drill and battery pack.
A fast charger, which fully recharges the battery in 60 minutes.
One double bit for posi-drive screws. This is held, securely clipped to the casing above the battery.
A very sturdy black, moulded plastic, carry case.
A comprehensive booklet of instructions in English and three other languages, DE, AT and CH.
A three-year warranty.
The motor, powered by battery, is housed in the elongated head, which for the purpose of this review I will call the barrel, just above the handgrip. The handgrip, which features a rubberised coating on one side, extends at right angles from the barrel to the battery casing at the bottom.This drill has two functions, the first as a drill and the second, as a screwdriver. Therefore it has two gears one for each function. The gear selector, a red plastic lever, is positioned on top of the barrel.
Behind the gear selector, at the rear end of the barrel, are three small LED displays; by pressing a small red button behind these, the battery condition will be indicated.At the far end of the barrel is the keyless chuck, where the drill bits are secured. Behind that, a torque pre-selector which I believe has something to do with the force produced to rotate the chuck, so for small screws a low setting is selected but for larger screws and inserting screws into hard wood, a higher torque is required.
