There are no open service centers where, if necessary, a Dewalt punch could be repaired.
Features of models
All products of the Devolt company are developed by a group of researchers. They study and implement new technologies in the models being produced. Thanks to this, all products of the company are popular with consumers.
The Dewalt puncher has a streamlined shape, it is convenient and pleasant to hold it in your hands. Due to this, it becomes easier and more convenient to work with it. Using the latest technology allows you to increase the power of the tool without increasing its size. Researchers at the company specifically calculate all the parameters so that their tool is not too heavy.In the model range of the manufacturer there are options for lightweight drills, suitable for slender buyers, and heavier models that are suitable for more massive people.
Peaks and drills for perforators are made from various raw materials. For each element selected the most suitable material. Models of the company can be shock, drilling, combined. All models are equipped with an electronic speed controller.
A tool for amateurs or professionals?
The Dewalt puncher is developed as the professional electric tool. Despite this, models are available that are suitable for use at home. But they, like all products, belong to the class of professional tools. This means that all models are able to work every day for eight hours.
In addition, the tool has good functionality, which will be enough even for professional use. With their help, you can drill holes in brick, concrete, work with wood and metal, remove old plaster, tile, and so on.
There are also impact drills that allow you to do the job faster and with less effort.
Among the functions that the Dewalt punch has, it is worth mentioning the reverse.Thanks to her, the drill begins to rotate in the opposite direction. This will be necessary if the drill jam. This is extremely rare due to the special design of the tool. More specifically, the tool has a special safety clutch for such situations. But if, however, jamming happens, at the expense of the “Reverse” button, the drills for the perforator will be removed easily and will not break.
The reverse is also useful in cases when it is necessary to translate the perforator into the mode of the screwdriver. If necessary, you can purchase a dust removal system. It will help to clear the instrument of debris during operation.
Variety of models
The range of the proposed drills is very large. And it is impossible to divide them into groups using only one classification. Consider the most important groups.
In terms of weight, the Dewalt puncher may belong to one of the following groups:
- Lungs that weigh less than five kilograms. Most of the models belonging to this group are equipped with a cartridge of type SDS-plus. Due to this, they are more suitable for repairs.
- Heavy, whose weight is more than five kilograms.Unlike the previous group, models of this category are equipped with SDS-max. They are intended for construction work.
Another important classification is based on the method of mounting the engine. According to her perforators are divided into:
- Longitudinal, in which the engine is located longitudinally. These models have less weight and better maneuverability. They are suitable for working in hard to reach places.
- Vertical, in which the engine, respectively, is located vertically. Their weight is higher. But endurance too. They can work longer without a break than the models of the first group.
Different models of drills and power. It depends on the performance of the tool. In addition, the higher the power, the more current the model will consume. It is also worth considering when choosing a punch. There is a lot of models of punchers. Therefore, below we consider only a few of them.
