Porter-Cable 18-volt drill/driver
Porter-Cable announces the launch of its next generation 18 Volt Lithium Ion Drill/Driver (PCL180CDK-2), redesigned to offer contractors significant improvements in performance, ergonomics, versatility and durability. The drill/driver features a new motor and impedance batteries that deliver 424 inch-pounds of max torque, a 30 percent improvement over the old model. The additional torque also provides 25 percent higher speed with 1,500 RPM in high gear, allowing users to complete applications faster.
