What is the advantage of a Panasonic dual-voltage SDS drill?
The bodies of all the tools in this range contain a sensor that detects the voltage of the attached battery, and then changes the current and voltage flow to give you the tool’s best performance.
Having a tool that can be powered by 18v and 14.4v batteries gives you excellent flexibility, and allows you to customise the tool to the task at hand.
Need the highest power and longest runtime? Use 18v 4.2Ah batteries. Need a lightweight tool that can be used for smaller tasks overhead? Use 14.4v 1.5Ah batteries. Or use anything in between suited exactly to your needs!
