You might have a power drill around your house and those of you who are really serious to yourself is you might bought another tool, a screw gun and they are all powered by this electric cord as they get in the way the drills have this chucky so that you can take drill bits in and out. And you know what, guess what, you do not need no electric cords. Let me show you the new tool. It is a cordless drill driver that does the function of both tools in one without any of the electric cords.
I would like these tools for another reason. They were a lot like your car. They have different speeds. They have a fast speed that gives you quick work and they have another speed that gives you more power. It is not much different in the transmission in your car. It also has forward and reverse in both of those speeds. That is very important.
One of the coolest features of this tool happens to be the clutch collar and it is simply allows you to adjust the depth to which you drive the screw. Low settings on the clutch collar mean the screw does not go over a deep at all. Almost every single drill driver comes with an extra battery in case you run out of power during the job, you just simply remove the battery and put your new one in and you are ready to go.
If you want to maximize the power of this drill driver tools, get one of these accessory kits that has all of the drill bits and the screwdriver bits. You simply take one of the adaptors and remember you do not need to be chucky, put it in into the end of the tool and you turn the drill on and hold the end of the drill and it tightens up the adaptor.
One of the things I like about these tools is that they come in different sizes and different power levels. For example, this is for the really serious contractor or serious do it yourself work. It is 18 volts. You can actually even get one potentially that is 24 volts. But for those of you who just do maybe weekend projects on monthly basis or so you may find that the 14.4 volt model is good enough, it is lighter weight, it fits those people who have smaller hands really well, and let me tell you something else I do not need any trouble.
