And with the cordless impact drill with percussion mechanism, even resistant materials like stone and concrete can be drilled through.
Drill, dowel, screw with one device – even without a power socket within reach. Thanks to the large selection of bits and drill attachments, the cordless screwdriver is so flexible that it makes screwdrivers and drills superfluous for some ambitious DIY enthusiasts.
Few topics in the do-it-yourself sector generate as many emotions as the question of which cordless screwdriver is the best. The answer to it depends completely substantially on what one would like to make with the cordless screwdriver. If it is only about the occasional screwing or is to be drilled thereby also times, how often the cordless drill is used and completely importantly: Is the cordless drill with other devices to be compatible?
