As versatile as it is powerful, the DWD215G functions well for both steel and wood applications. When working with a spade bit in wood, the drill offers a 1-1/2-inch capacity, and with an auger bit in wood, it can handle a 1-1/8-inch bit. The drill can handle a 2-9/16-self-feed bit and a 3-1/2-inch hole saw in wood. It can also handle a 1/2-inch twist bit or a 2-inch hole saw in steel.
The DWD215G's 1/2-inch, single-sleeve, ratcheting keyless chuck is all-metal for durability and features an automatic spindle lock that provides greater bit retention. Along with the convenience of tool-free bit changes, the drill features a metal gear housing for added security against wear and tear.
