Mechanical clutchExclusive Bind-Up Control and DEWALT-Built Motor
At the heart of the DWD460K 1/2-Inch VSR Stud Joist Drill Kit's performance is a patented DEWALT-built motor that delivers increased power and performance in high-torque applications. The drill offers two variable speed ranges–0 to 330/0 to 1300 rpm. Paired with its powerful 11 amp motor, this translates to improved drilling and driving by allowing you to select the speed that's right for the application at hand.

The heavy-duty DWD460K features a mechanical clutch that delivers increased gear protection at low speeds. It also has the DEWALT trademarked Bind-Up Control stall-sensing technology, which provides increased control of reactionary torque. This protects both the drill's mechanisms and helps prevent common loss of drilling control often experienced in various plumbing and electrical rough-in applications.

Designed to Handle Tough Applications
As versatile as it is powerful, the DWD460K offers a 1-1/2-inch capacity when working with a spade bit or auger bit in wood. It can handle a capacity of 4-5/8 inches when used with a self-feed bit and a huge 6-inch capacity with a hole saw. It has a capacity of 1/2 inch when working in steel with a twist bit. as well as a 5-inch capacity in steel when working with a hole saw.

For durability and long tool life, the drill features a metal gear housing and 100 percent ball-bearing construction.

Built with Comfortable, Accurate Handling in Mind
Comfortable handling goes a long way toward ensuring accurate results, and the DWD460K is built to minimize fatigue. Its body weighs a manageable 11.75 pounds, and its adjustable front handle and two-position side handle provide maximum leverage and control.

The DWD460K 1/2-Inch VSR Stud and Joist Drill Kit with Clutch and Bind-Up Control comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

Made my electrician jealous

 on August 9, 2017
By Amazon Addict
I bought this to do the electrical rough in on my house. Effortlessly goes through the studs and plates. Make’s it an easy job. Get a good “nail eating” auger bit. My electrician and crew came to help pull wire and drill any holes I missed. They tried this drill and stopped and bought one when they left.

Excellent product

Excellent product, as you would expect from DeWalt. Worked first time, every time. Used it to bore 8″ holes in a tree for tree house TABS. I broke two cheaper drills trying to do this and finally stepped up…good move. Should have done it the first time!

Awesome Drill

By Benjamin
I’ve only had this for a few months but it has saved me loads of time drilling through joints, double, triple or whatever. It would take me a half hour with my normal drill to do what I can do in five minutes with this thing. Super happy with the price and performance so far and I bet this will end up lasting me just as long as if I spent another $200 for the Milwaukee Super Hole Hawg.

Great drill, great power. Fits in tight places.

This drill is fantastic. When you want to shoot holes in a stud, this thing doesn’t even slow down. I like it much more than the Milwaukee I was using prior to this. The right angle is great for tight places.

It’s an amazing tool. I used it to wire my three-floor workshop/garage. It will put 1″ bit through six 2″X6″ studs in a matter of seconds–all day, if you can keep up with it–an a single 2″ board is pierced with no aplomb whatsoever. (Buy Greenlee Nail Eater bits for it–they’re worth it.)

Starting to look like I have a replacement

I bought this drill trying it out to replace the Milwaukee Hole Hogs that I own. I’ve been using it now for around 4 months and so far it has done very well. Starting to look like I have a replacement.

Dewalt is far better and easier to use

This thing is a beast on a leash. The anti-kickback feature is way more progressive than I could have imagined. I’ve never been in a bind with this tool and there is plenty of power (by “plenty of power” I mean this thing could rip off both your arms and beat a hole through the triple stud with your head…but instead it just pats you on the back and compliments your hat). I’ve told anyone who will listen, my wife and you included…this is a great tool.

I have only used this drill for a short period of time, however, it has made our construction drilling and mixing needs very simple. It drills studs with ease and I am glad to have made the transition from a battery powered drill to this one. I didn’t know the difference would be so great. I recommend this drill for sure.
