Metabo has released the BS18 LT drill/driver as the latest tool in the 18V Power Master series of lithium-ion cordless power tools.

The economical BS18 LT provides Metabo’s advanced tool ergonomics plus the performance and capacity advantages of lithium-ion batteries.

Fitted with the Li-Power Plus 18V, 2.6Ah battery, the cordless drill/driver charges faster and lasts longer than other charging technologies, the company said.

Metabo’s air-cooled charging technology utilises guided air-flow ducting to cool the battery pack to an optimum temperature level during charging reduces charging times by 30 per cent to increase productivity.

Metabo’s Electronic Single Cell Protection (ESCP) cell monitoring electronically monitors individual battery cells while in use and during charging to prevent damage due to a complete discharge while working and from overcharging while charging.

Damage prevention ensures longer battery life.

The BS18 LT’s combination of premium battery and charging technologies provides extended work time between charges and requires less time during charges for maximum productivity.

Users in the field, such as electricians, contractors, remodelers, cable installers, HVAC technicians and others in rugged industrial and commercial construction applications, can benefit from the drill/driver’s battery and power options whenever a highly-reliable and long-lasting tool is required.

At 4.5lb and 8in long, the cordless drill/driver is more compact in weight and size compared to other models in its class, including Metabo’s LTX drill/driver.

The user can remove the chuck to drive screws with the 1/4in hexagon recessed spindle using an accessory bit retainer.

This gives the operator the ability to use the cordless BS18 LT in tighter spaces where other cordless tools cannot fit.

A built-in LED worklight provides greater visibility in dark spaces.

Users can easily adjust the speed from the lowest to highest value via Metabo’s Variospeed full-wave electronic speed control.

The cordless drill/driver offers a no-load speed of 0 to 400rev/min in first gear and 0 to 1,400rev/min in second gear.

Equipped with a 1/2in chuck, the tool has a drilling capacity of 1/2in in steel and 1-3/16in in wood.

Featuring a patented dual range torque adjustment, the BS18 LT gives the user the ability to set the torque to 13 through 31in/lb or 31 through 114in/lb.

The power tool can handle up to 531in/lb of torque for momentary maximum spikes in the event of extreme resistance (hard case) and 230in/lb of torque continuously (soft case).
