What is a Cordless Drill?
Cordless drills are a power tool that use battery power to quickly drill holes into wood, concrete, metal, fiberglass, drywall, and other materials. Cordless tools can also be used to make pilot holes for fasteners.
Types of Cordless Drill
There are three main types of cordless drills: hammer drills, right angle drills, and drills/drivers. Because each drill is used for different purposes, it’s highly important that you understand the uses, features, and capabilities of each drill and how it pertains to your project or application.
Cordless Hammer Drill/Drivers
Hammer drills utilize internal impacts to spin their bits. A hammer drill with an SDS shank offers quick bit changes and delivers extra power to the bit. These drills have crossbars to increase your leverage and precision. Cordless drills/drivers offer similar performance to hammer drills but not all models use impacts to drive their bits. Variable speed triggers let you choose the performance level you need from your drills.
Cordless Right Angle Drill
Right angle drills feature a long handle with a short head to fit in tight spaces. These drills are longer along the handle, but besides their shape offer the same functionality as other drills. Use a right angle drill for confined work sites to save time from taking apart previous construction for access.
A cordless drill/driver driver is a highly versatile cordless power tool that drills holes as well as drives screws. Cordless drill/drivers have a keyless chuck, allowing it to be used with a variety of different sized round or hex shank drill bits or screw driving bits. Drill/drivers can also be used with other attachments including hold saws, wire wheeled brushes, rotary sanders, and other specialized attachments.
