In The Box:
  • Drill
  • AuxiliaryHandle

>> The cable is only 2 meters in length; so you defintely need extension cord.

>> There is a rubber clench on the drill where the Chuck Key can be securely latched on when not in use.

>> The drill bits than came along with this is of very low quality. I purchased a set of Bosch Masonry Bits and another set of Wood Bits.

>> The Depth Gauge can be adjusted to work as a stopper while drilling to prevent from over-drilling.

>> The speed is variable; speed increases as we apply more pressure on the trigger. If you press the lock switch with the trigger pressed down, the trigger will lock at ON position until you unlock it.

>> The hammer function is useful while drilling on masonry or concrete.

>> The reverse function helps to release the bit if it gets jammed inside the masonry.

>> The vibrations are shielded to an extent; still we feel it especially while hammer drilling.

>> There is heat produced while drilling; but that is normal. I have not yet had the need to use this continuously for more than a minute.

>> I have once used a long iron rod as the bit to drill a hole through 6 inch brick wall and worked fine.

>> If you master applying the right amount of pressure on the trigger, this can be used for fastening or unfastening screws, polish your car, etc. (provided you have the correct bits).

>> I did also purchase ‘3M 1621 Safety Goggles’ for protection of my eyes against any flying debris and dust while drilling.
