Features of the Panasonic EY79A3LJ2G Combi Drill

◾ Powerful percussion mechanism for fast and effortless work

◾ NEW ‘Smart BL’ intelligent control technology: a leading-edge micro-controller delivers optimal brushless motor output for maximised tool performance which delivers the power and speed to suit your task

◾ Compact design with comfort grip for perfect handling, even in confined or awkward spaces

◾ Electronic speed control allows you to tailor the speed to the application and material

◾ ‘Smooth Start’ electronics start the rotation speed gradually for very slow and smooth starts, ensuring ultimate control when starting drilling or working with small screws in precise applications

◾ Speed control function allows you to choose from three different low rotation speed settings (H/M/S) based on allowable maximum speeds for metal hole saws to greatly reduce ‘run out’ and prevent surface scorching on stainless steel and other materials

◾ Electric brake for increased precision when driving rows of screws

◾ NEW metal tapping mode allows automatic reverse without having to change the toggle for maximum convenience and accuracy

◾ Robust design for high durability:
Metal chuck with ultra-hard tungsten carbide jaw tips which give extra ‘bite strength’ and significantly reduce wear.
Increased amounts of rubber and resin coating at the bottom help prevent damage if the tool is dropped from a height.
Hybrid switch (semi-electronic) eliminates heavy friction to internal parts when using the electric brake for smoother operation and double the life expectancy of the part.

◾ Tough Tool IP (intelligent power tool):

The power supply is automatically cut-off before over-discharge (excessive use), overheating or overload to prevent damage to the tool and battery

The switch, electronic circuits and battery are covered by a urethane layer for high levels of dust and water protection

◾ Dual voltage – this Panasonic combi drill can be powered by a 14.4V or 18V Panasonic battery for flexible working

◾ LED job light for a clear view when working

◾ Battery charge indicator ensures that you never run out of power unexpectedly

◾ Belt hook for convenient hanging
