What are the different types of DeWalt Drill?
When choosing an angle grinder, one of the first things to consider is whether a corded tool that runs on mains electricity or a cordless model powered by a battery is best for your needs.
Both types of angle grinder have their benefits and drawbacks. While corded grinders tend to be more powerful, cordless versions can be more convenient.
Compact Drill Drivers
Compact drill drivers are small and light, making them easy to operate for long periods.
They can be used with a wide variety of drill bits for boring holes, and with driving bits for tackling screws and other fasteners.
See Introduction to DeWalt Compact Drill Drivers for more details.
As the name suggests, hammer drills operate using a high-speed hammering action which is measured in bpm (blows per minute). They have three settings: hammer, hammer and drill, and drill only.
They are most suited to heavy-duty tasks such as drilling into concrete and brickwork. See Introduction to DeWalt Hammer Drills to find out more.
Percussion drills use both a hammering and a drilling action, and are ideal as general purpose, medium-duty tools.
They can be used to drive screws or bore holes into wood, metal and plasterboard, as well as harder materials such as cement, limestone and thin concrete. See Introduction to DeWalt Percussion Drills for further details.
Mixed and Rotary Drills
These heavy-duty drills are ideal for builders, plasterers and decorators, as they can be used both for mixing mortar, plaster and paint, and for drilling holes. See Introduction to DeWalt Mixer and Rotary Drills for more information.
Light and compact, angle drills have a right-angled design for use in small or awkward spaces, making them particularly popular with plumbers and electricians. See Introduction to DeWalt Angle Drills to find out more.
