What is drill mode?

Shop for Cordless Drill Drivers

Zoomed in picture of the drill mode symbol on a cordless drill driver When you want to drill holes, you must put the cordless drill driver into ‘drill mode’. This is done by rotating the adjustable torque ring until the drill symbol is aligned with the arrow.

This is because drilling holes requires a lot of power, and so you don’t need to control the amount of torque, as you would when driving screws.

Please note: If your drill driver does not have a torque ring, it will always be in ‘drill mode’
