Date:11 March 2016 Tags:,

The Skil 2532 is a cordless combi drill for demanding drilling, impact drilling and screwdriving applications. Compact yet powerful and weighing only 1.4 kilograms including battery, its the lightest tool in its class. You’ll notice the difference when working overhead for extended periods, like when fitting ceiling profiles. It can be comfortably operated with two fingers using the accelerator switch. The two-speed gearbox offers high power for screwdriving in first gear and high speed for drilling with and without impact in second gear. Plus, 19 torque settings cover virtually every screw size and application. Because the 18-volt lithium-ion battery exhibits no memory effect and hardly any self-discharge, the 2532 cordless combi drill is ready to use even after long breaks and can be recharged at any time without any loss of performance.
