Sleek, lightweight and powerful (especially for a cordless unit), the Black & Decker 14.4V FireStorm cordless drill kit is designed to make quick work of most everyday drilling and driving needs. The FireStorm powers through masonry, wood or steel. The unit features an adjustable torque collar with 36 settings and delivers up to 235 in./lbs. of torque. A two-position gear box offers variable speeds of 0-300 and 0-1,100 rpm. The Quick Connect Bit Change System allows you to work with two bits at once, a real timesaver when drilling pilot holes for screws; while the built-in level indicator makes it easy to keep those holes straight and clean. The drill rests comfortably in the hand and is insulated for added safety. A trigger lock-off helps prevent accidental startup. Spring-loaded batteries are easy to remove and lock securely into place. And onboard bit storage provides added convenience.--Carl Thress
From the Manufacturer
The high-powered 14.4-volt drill from Black and Decker offers faster drilling with a new Quick Connect Bit Change system, electronic level, Infinite Clutch, two-position gear box, and more torque than the competition. The patented Quick Connect Bit Change System, exclusive to the FireStorm drill line, speeds up drilling by allowing you to drill holes and drive screws without changing a single accessory. The System features a removable 3/8-inch keyless chuck that accepts both round and hex shank bits. The chuck is quickly and effortlessly removed to expose a screwdriving bit. The removable chuck is especially useful when making a pilot hole (pilot bit in the removable chuck) and then driving the screw (remove chuck to expose screwdriver bit) in a repetitive manner. The internal screwdriving bit holder features a pull and release collar that secures screwdriving bits or quickly adds 1/4-inch hex shank drill bits. To help with straight and level drilling, the FireStorm drills have an electronic level built into the end of the drill. When the drill is in a level position the LED display lights up. Another new and exclusive feature is the Infinite clutch, which offers a spectrum of clutch settings selected by visual reference guide of screw size. The FireStorm battery has been redesigned with a "spring-loaded" pack, which springs forward like a cassette with the push of a button, and then easily slides off. The drill is sold in an innovative storage box that mounts to the wall with clips to hold the drill and charger in place when not in use. The FSD142K-2 includes the drill, two batteries, charger, #2 Phillips bit, 1/8-inch hex shank drill bit, and wall mountable storage case.
