Product Overview

The DEWALT 1/2 in. Stud and Joist Drill drills large holes quickly and safely and is a must-have tool for plumbers and electricians. Powerful, reliable and accurate, you can drill holes up to 2-9/16 in. at 1200 RPM and larger holes up to 4-5/8 in. at 300 RPM. The mechanical clutch in the 300 RPM setting engages at 70 ft. lbs. of torque, preventing kick-back for comfortable use. Featuring an extra-long 21 in. design for more leverage and control, the compact head allow you to work in tight spaces, while the lightweight design allows for easy portability and less user fatigue.

  • 100% ball-bearing construction for lasting durability and longer tool life
  • Mechanical-slip clutch in low gear provides control of reactionary torque
  • Adjustable front handle and 2-position side handle provide maximum leverage and control
  • Mechanically controlled 2-speed operation to match RPM/torque to application
  • Triple gear reduction provides increased torque and reduces gear stress
  • 21 in. overall length provides greater control and leverage
  • Includes: 1/2 in. stud and joist drill, 2-position side handle, chuck key and holder and ball handle
  • 90-day money back guarantee; 1-year free service contract; 3-year limited warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. The drill was just as described and easy to operate. It came highly recommended by a friend, and is exactly what he said it was. Dewalt is a great line. My husband has other Dewalt tools and is well pleased with them too. He is a plumber and needed this drill to make his work easier.
