Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, has just released its new 3/8" drill, which is perfect for light to medium drilling and driving. Offering a no-load speed of 2,850 RPM, the BE4010 is ideal for drilling holes and driving screws into wood or sheet metal, particularly in the carpentry, metal fabrication and plant maintenance industries.
The tool has a drilling capacity of 7/8" in soft wood with the use of self-feed bits and a drilling capacity of 3/8" in mild steel. In addition to offering a 3/8" keyless chuck for easy bit changing, the BE4010 incorporates a variable speed electronic switch that allows for easy starting of a bit into any material.
The 400-watt drill's light weight of 2.64 lbs as well as its ergonomic design enables extended use without fatigue, which is useful when drilling in an awkward position or from on top of a ladder.
The 3.5 amp motor offers a maximum tightening torque of 53 inch lbs. In addition, the BE4010 offers an optional joist hanger to keep the tool within easy reach and to make working from a ladder or a scaffold safer.
