WOOD magazine review

Neon-green driver stands on its own pack

Review Summary

• Drill stands by itself due to large battery pack. • Forward/reverse switch is easily activated with a positive "lock" feel to it. • This unit would often shut down when we drilled holes larger than 3/4" and drove lag screws larger than 1/4" diameter. But it worked great with screws and smaller holes. • Since the chuck is so close to the clutch and has a smaller diameter, we found it difficult to tighten the jaws on small drill bits.
Also, the drill's drive-train does not automatically lock, so this added difficulty when trying to tighten the jaw system. • Charging batteries took 60 minutes to fully charge a battery pack.
