The Metabo PowerMaxx Cordless Drill
posted on August 3, 2006 by Rockler

It may sound funny to list "small" as a feature, but that's one of the Metabo PowerMaxx Cordless Drill / Driver's most admirable qualities.  It's small enough to fit comfortably in your front pocket, making it the perfect tool for all of those drilling and fastening jobs that were designed to be done by people who have three hands - installing cabinets, hanging cabinet doors, putting up shelves, hanging light fixtures, closet hardware, storm windows ...

The PowerMaxx fits into cramped working quarters just as easily.  Anyone who's ever reached into a cabinet to install drawer slides or been thwarted by a narrow working clearance knows that a "full-sized" cordless drill just isn't the tool for tight spaces. Measuring only 5-3/4" long, the Metabo PowerMaxx fits inside things, between things, behind things, underneath things -  with the 90 degree attachment that's included in the PowerMaxx Plus kit, there really isn't much of anywhere that it doesn't fit.  The PowerMaxx weighs in at only 1-1/2 lbs. It's easy to handle, hold up, and aim, no matter what contorted position you find yourself in while you're getting at one of life's many inconveniently located screws.

What about power? Power is what sets the Metabo apart from other small cordless drills and drivers. Its 80 In-lbs. max torque, 2-speed gearbox, 20-level clutch and long lasting 4.8 volt batteries put it in a class of tool that the suits the performance needs of professional cabinetmakers and cabinet installers.  The PowerMaxx Plus Package comes with two batteries and a charger.  Keeping one in the drill and one in the charger will keep you moving along, whether you're driving 2-1/2" screws into wall studs, putting on a kitchen's worth of hardware, or just doing a little work around the house.

  • Bought it. Love it!! It's light and a perfect fit for my hand and, surprisingly for a 4.8 volt battery, it has plenty of power.<br /><br />Generally when I find something that I really like, it very quickly becomes unavailable. So, if I were you, I would hurry to purchase this remarkable tool before they pull it off the market or they find someway to "improve" it right out of usability.<br /><br />This is beginning to sound more like a sales pitch than a testimonial. So, for the record, I am just a woodworker. I am not an employee of nor do I have any financial interest in either Rockler or Metabo.
