Metabo Releases New Cordless Drill / Driver

Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has introduced a cordless drill/driver with a new motor that offers increased power of up to 549 inch-lbs. of torque.  The Metabo BSZ 18 Cordless Drill/Driver is ideal for a wide variety of construction and industrial work including drilling, tapping, and driving screws.

The 18-volt tool offers 20 torque settings, plus a drill setting, with forward and reverse modes.  Onboard Variospeed electronics allow infinite no-load speeds up to 1,450 rpm.  The new drill/driver features Metabo’s spindle lock for one-handed bit changing using the 1/4” keyless chuck, and an ergonomic, rubber-coated T-handle with a built-in clip that holds two bits.

The tool uses a smooth gear change mechanism with 3-level planetary gears to extend tool life. The optimized fan helps keep the motor cool under load.  The BSZ 18 utilizes Metabo’s new patented air-cooled battery system to increase performance.  This system conduction-cools both the battery and the charger, keeping the battery at the optimum charging temperature, which results in 30% faster charging and increased service life.  Each 18-volt battery offers 1.4 amp hours and an extended service life of up to 2000 charges.

The Metabo BSZ 18 can drill up to 1/2" holes in mild steel and up to 1-3/16" holes in soft wood.  The tool weighs 4.85 lbs. with battery.
