The new ASCM QX drill/driver is built to perform non-stop under the most rigorous conditions. Its brushless, dustproof, PowerDrive DC motor and electronics provide extremely long service life with 30% more efficiency than comparable DC motors. Its four-speed, all metal gearbox can be set to 400, 800, 1,950 or 3,850-RPM. 15 torque settings provide adjustable depth stops preventing stripping or breaking screw heads. For example, when using the 400-RPM speed the unit develops a 796 in/lb torque for driving 3/8″ X 15-3/4″ fully threaded screws in soft wood without pre-drilling or stripping the screw heads. A side handle gives it added stability.
It comes with two, 18 V, Lithium-Ion batteries and a FEIN rapid charger, which will provide full-day continuous use. Each battery will operate under full load use for about 30 minutes while the second battery recharges in the same amount of time. It can make 1,800, 3/16″ X 1-9/16″ screw connections in soft wood on a single charge. FEIN SafetyCell technology protects the batteries from overload, overheating and deep discharge through a communication link. A time saving feature of the ASCM QX model is its quick-action interchangeable Rohm chuck and separate bit holder. The chuck with spindle lock has a 1/16″ – 1/2″ tool capacity with steel jaws for optimal tool holding. The twist-on, twist-off chuck and bit holder are easily changed out without the use of tools. It also has variable speed finger control for precision drilling and fastening. A high-performance LED light is aimed to provide perfect illumination of the work area without any chuck or bit shadows
The drill/driver weighs 3.75 lb (1.7 kg) with the 18 V battery. A 14.4 V battery is available reducing the unit weight to 3.25 lb but at a sacrifice of 44 lb torque. It comes standard in a plastic carrying case with interchangeable chuck and separate bit holder, two batteries, rapid charging unit.
