Rockwells Triple Function 12V Driver: Drill, Drive & Impact
The Rockwell® 12V LithiumTech™ 3-in-1 3RILL™. Will give contractoras and homeowners a cool option to upgrade their power tools or buy one tool that takes the place of three. The 3-in-1 3RILL™ has 800 in.-lbs. of torque and a 2-speed drill/driver, screwdriver with adjustable clutch and impact driver rolled into one. Drill holes in wood or metal, drive large bolts and lag screws into wood or composite decking and sink drywall screws all day with the same tool. There are no trips to the tool box or return visits up the ladder.
This multi-tasking tool saves time and energy and, when it’s time to recharge, the Energy-Star-rated fast charger goes green in 30 minutes. In fact, after 15 minutes the battery reaches 75 percent capacity. The Rockwell LithiumTech fast charger even has a universal USB port to charge cell phones, MP3 players or laptops.
Ultra-compact, lightweight and powerful, the Euro-styled 3-in-1 3RILL is one of the latest tools in Rockwell’s extended family of 12-volt LithiumTech power tools, which includes the H3™ Rotary Hammer Drill, Sonicrafter®, Drill/driver, Screwdriver and Impact Driver.
The 3RILL has a no load speed of 0-2200 rpm, 0-600 rpm in screw mode and 0-2200 impacts-per-minute (ipm). The single-pole battery’s capacity is 1.3 Ah. Weighing 2.7 lbs. (with battery), this versatile driver with durable, all-metal two-speed gearbox (0-600, 0-2200), has 22 torque positions to handle a variety of work applications.
It also features an LED light to illuminate the work surface area and a low battery indicator. A short head stock enables the driver to be used in limited clearance areas. Its ¼ in. hex keyless chuck with quick-connect provides one-handed bit changes. The 3-in-1 3RILL has a soft-grip handle that helps minimize vibration for comfortable use. It’s also outfitted with a variable-speed trigger and a forward/reverse switch for directional changes.
LithiumTech™ batteries are lighter weight than, and characteristically outperform, their NiCd counterparts. These batteries last longer and feature three times the number of recharges. They hold a charge five times longer than conventional NiCd batteries and are 40 percent lighter. There also is no memory effect, so the battery can charge anytime.
LithiumTech batteries also are recyclable, which keeps their components circulating and out of landfills. The Rockwell 12V LithiumTech 3RILL Driver is part of Rockwell’s Free Batteries for Life program, which reinforces the company’s confidence in the quality of its batteries and cordless tools.
Registered users never need to worry about buying new batteries because Rockwell will replace them free for the life of the tool. The Free Batteries for Life program reduces the overall cost of owning a Rockwell cordless tool by 40 to 70 percent.
Accessories included with the 3RILL are two battery packs and charger, a double-ended power driving bit and a carrying bag.
The Rockwell 12V LithiumTech 3-in-1 3RILL (RK2515K2, $179.99) is available at toolbarn.com and other online Websites, and is expected to be available at Menards, Lowe’s and regional hardware and home centers nationwide.
