In total there are 18 different steps to screw and one to drill. The higher the step, the higher the torque. You can also choose between two different gears, which also regulate the torque.
To drill, first set the torque limit to the highest level. The rechargeable drill drills through wood, you have to hold the drill tight. You will notice that the drill does not pass through the wood effortlessly.
To screw, first set the torque limit manually to a desired level. On all levels, the screws can be easily screwed in and out by using the right/left rotation.
As soon as the screw head reaches the wood and the set torque value is exceeded, the slipping clutch engages automatically and prevents more power from being exerted on the screw.
The battery level is indicated by an LED light. The battery life is approximately 60 minutes. In order to determine the battery life, we have used cable ties to fix the switch and let the drill run continuously. The result indicates approximately how long the battery of the devices can last. The time can vary if the device is used actively.
