Ultra compact body allows use un restricted spaces

For more efficient work in narrow spaces, our new shorter motor design, gears, and chucks dramatically shorten the tool body. Saving 25mm against our existing drill driver EY74A1.

Powerful to the finish

The new, large diameter brushless motors generate high power and efficiency (32Nm of torque - 18V battery). Plus the newly designed control circuit increases stable current flow to motor by more than 70%*. This enables high power output to be evenly maintained until the task is completed even during high-load operation.

* Compared with previous brushless motor.

Compact with high power for increased versatility

New brushless motor

New brushless motor

Without brushes and commutator which can reduce the lifetime of the tool, the motor lasts approx. twice compared with brushed motor*.

* Compared with Panasonic conventional brushed motor

New ultra hard chuck jaw tips

We increased durability of every part right down to the new metal chuck which features tungsten carbide jaw tips. These extra hardened inserts are brazed into each jaw to give extra ‘bite strength’ and substantially reduce wear.

New hybrid switch

To eliminate heavy friction to internal parts of the switch during use of electric brake, we developed a new semi-electronic switch. This gives smoother operation and double* the life expectancy of the part.

* Compared with Panasonic conventional switches

Tough IP: Battery protection*

Individual monitoring of battery cells allows power supply to automatically cut off before over-discharge (excessive use), overheating, or overcurrent (excessive load). Switch and electronics circuits of control panel and battery pack are covered by an urethane layer to give high levels of dust and water protection.


Speed control function enables perfect finishing

New “Speed Control Function” reduces ‘run out’ for metal hole saw

This new function allows the user to select from three different low rotation speed settings (H / M / S), based on allowable maximum speeds* for metal hole saws. It greatly reduces ‘run out’ when using metal hole saws and prevents surface scorching on stainless steel and other materials.

* Different ‘allowable maximum speeds’ are determined for metal hole saws depending on diameter and target material. See websites of metal hole saw manufacturers for further details.

Increased efficiency and flexibility

“SMOOTH START” electronics allow easy, precise speed control

New advanced speed control electronics start rotation speed gradually. This enables very slow and smooth starts allowing ultimate control when starting drilling or working with small screws in precise applications.

Fresh new ‘CARBON’ design

To enhance the internal engineering and technology developments, a fresh new body design and material finish has been developed. With the unique carbon fibre textured finish and new comfort grip, style is added to substance with improved ergonomics too.

Various support design

New grip pattern design to prevent slipping and increase operator comfort

LED Light
Elastomer Bumper
Increased amounts of rubber and resin coating at the bottom of the tool helps prevent damage if dropped from elevated areas.
