First battery-powered drill driver by TRUMPF
The TruTool DD 1010 is convincing thanks to its high performance. It also fits the hand perfectly.
TRUMPF is introducing the new TruTool DD 1010 to the market. This battery-powered drill driver is distinguished above all by its ergonomically correct design and superb operating convenience. It draws power from a modern 10.8 volt Li-ion battery with two ampere-hours of capacity. This ensures a long duty cycle and is also used in other TRUMPF power tools. Professional craftsmen can use this machine to drill starting holes in steel sheets and, in just the same way, to drive screws and drill holes in a variety of other materials.
Equipped with a powerful 2 speed gear, this high-quality drill drive can achieve 15 or 30 newton meters in both the clockwise and counterclockwise directions. Maximum speed is 1,450 revolutions per minute. To set the power level correctly for screw driving and drilling, TRUMPF has fitted this new industrial-quality tool with 17 torque steps and an additional drilling step. The chuck opens to ten millimeters in diameter. In this way users can drill holes up to 20 millimeters wide in wood. In steel, eight millimeters holes can be drilled without problems. If the user changes to the screwdriver function, then an auto-stop clutch keeps from stripping the threads and makes for quick and safe work.
Ergonomical and comfortable
The high quality of the TruTool DD 1010, typical for TRUMPF, is reflected in the performance data and the rugged engineering and equally in its convenient operation. According to Michael Keilbach, Sales Manager for Germany in the Power Tools Division at TRUMPF, Test customers have also praised the ergonomics of the new battery-powered tool. The TRUMPF drill driver lies comfortably in the hand and features a cushioned soft grip with ideal grip circumference. Here the tool – including the rechargeable battery – weighs only 1.14 kilograms and because of that, makes for work at low fatigue levels.”
Power-saving and stabile
Uninterrupted use of the TruTool DD 1010 is also made possible since the modern 10.8 volt technology is miserly in energy use. Thus with a 2 Ah charge users can, for example, drill up to 24 starting holes (18 mm diameters in mild steel one millimeter thick) or can drive as many as 95 screws (4 x 60 mm) into wood. The charging period for this 2 Ah battery might also be a record-breaker. 80 percent of its capacity is restored in just 15 minutes and after 30 minutes it is fully charged. During this period either a spare battery or the battery from another TRUMPF 10.8 volt Li-ion tool may be used.
Among its other standard features, the TruTool DD 1010 includes an integral LED lamp to illuminate the screw driving or drilling area, an LED charge indicator, and a belt clip. Also advantageous is the stabile standing surface for the battery-powered tool, designed to prevent tipping. The TruTool DD 1010 is available either in a sturdy plastic case or in a simple carton. The unit may be delivered with two 2 Ah batteries and a charging unit or as a “solo” device – without batteries or the charger. As with all TRUMPF power tools, the owner enjoys a five-year guarantee once the drill driver has been registered.
