A reversible drill can alter its rotations from a clockwise direction to a counter clockwise direction, a feature that makes it suitable for both drilling and driving.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
The chuck holds the drill bits or other rotary tools and its diameter determines the types of bits and tools that the drill can use. A larger chuck is compatible with a wider range of bits and tools.
A tool/machine with a higher voltage produces more power.
A drill with variable speed allows you to switch between low and high speeds, giving you the possibility to take on a wider range of tasks.
Higher speeds work better for drilling holes in certain types of material, such as steel, aluminium, concrete, etc. The drill speed is measured in rotations per minute (rpm) when the drill has no-load.
The amperage is the strength of an electric current and it is measured in amperes (amps).
