Hello Jim, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
I think that what you are looking for is not a special kind of drill, but for a drill speed loader.
Normally you would not remove the drill chuck itself, but would insert and lock in a quick change bit. These allow hex shaft drills and screwdrivers to be quickly interchanged. Here is an example of what I am Read More

4.9 Amp 3/8 in. Drill with Keyless Chuck is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic buy! After searching the website for the characteristics I was looking for in an electric drill, this drill surpassed them all. It is lightweight; easy to handle; very quiet and has lots of power. It is everything you could ask for in an electric drill. And, as if this isn't enough, it is manufactured in the USA!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with Makita I purchased this drill to replace my first drill, a Makita that I bought in 1988. It is a straight-forward, no frills drill. I like the upgrade from the old fashioned wrench-type to the new hand tightening chuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Makita I have always wanted a Makita and finally I got one for my birthday. Love that this doesn't need a key to change the bits. It is not too heavy and I know it will last for a long time.
