Users can remove the chuck and access the drill's spindle with a hexagon recess that accepts screwdriver bits up to ¼-inch for driving applications.
It weighs only 5.1 lbs and has a 2-speed gearbox, a thumbwheel to preselect tool speed and Metabo's unique S-automatic torque-controlling safety clutch, which helps protect both the operator and the tool in the case of a jammed bit.
