What to look out for when buying a drill? This depends on what you’re looking for – is this your first drill or are you wanting to upgrade to a more powerful model? There are several things you should consider:
Consider what you will be using it for. Do you plan on carrying out light maintenance and repair or heavy-duty construction?
Which features are most important to the work you plan on carrying out?
Do you need a corded or cordless drill?
Would you prefer a lightweight and compact drill?
Do you need a multiple-speed feature to drill into a variety of materials?
What are the two types of drills?
The two main types of drills are manual and electric. Across both types, you can expect multi-function power:
Hand drill – used for drilling holes in soft metal, plastic, and softwood
Brace drill – used for drilling holes in wooden materials
Corded drill – drilling through metal, plastic, fibreglass, and wood
Cordless drill – similar to corded, can be used on thin metal sheets, plastic, fibreglass, and wood
Hammer drill – used on stone, metal, and concrete blocks
Drill press – can be used on tougher and softer materials
What size drill is best for home use? The type of drill you need varies on how often you plan on using it, the type of jobs you’ll be carrying out, and the materials you will be drilling through.
For the majority of DIY work at home, a 550-watt drill is enough. If you’re unsure which drill is best for you, don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
