Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How long does the battery last?

A: That depends. How old and corroded the valves are will play a big part in battery life, however, one battery should be able to run a full cycle on (30) 12 inch valves if they are in good shape.  Older valves will decrease that amout.

Three batteries will generally be more than enough for a full day of work.  

Q: Can I use my own drill?

A: No, the gearbox is specifically matched to the Metabo drill motor.

Q: What kind of safety features does it have?

A: A trigger hand guard, a stable foot base, overload protection, a shear key that will break before the gearbox does.
