If you’re looking for a smaller-than-average, basic, mid-priced, lightweight power drill that is both easy to carry around and use for continuous drilling, you can’t go wrong with the Hitachi D10VH Corded Power Drill . It also comes with a 5 year warranty which is a feature that you don’t often see anymore. Note, however, that it comes with a 5 year home use warranty.
With a compact size of 9 3/8” and featuring a 680W 6 Amp/120v motor with a 2500RPM maximum rotational speed, it seems equipped to handle regular workshop drilling jobs, weighing in at just 3.1lbs. If you ensure your drill bits are kept extremely sharp, the drill’s power requirement is significantly minimized since it (the drill bit) will cut rapidly without draining power or torque from the drill itself. The cutting capacities of the drill are listed below, but it should be noted that these can be increased using sharp drill bits:
Steel: 3/8” (10 mm) bit diameter – twist drill bit
Wood: 1” (25 mm) bit diameter – twist/spade bit
Wood: 5/8” (16 mm) bit diameter – auger bit
