EY74A1X 1/2″ Tough IP Li-ion 4.2Ah Cordless 1/2″ Drill and Driver with Dual-Voltage Technology (Tool Body Only) Versatility, High Performance, Extreme Run Time The Panasonic EY74A1X ( tool body only) 1/2″ drill and driver with dual-voltage technology is ideal for construction and maintenance professionals who often switch between driving and drilling tasks throughout the day. It’s built to take on both jobs with versatility and power that general construction, plumbing, finish carpentry, and electrical installation workers need to do the job efficiently and professionally. This versatile tool features the new Panasonic dual-voltage technology which allows the user to use the cordless drill and driver as an 18V or 14.4V tool. Bringing versatility to the next level. Simply switch between 18V and 14.4V Li-ion batteries to achieve the highest maximum power to get the job done. Its compact size at only 8″ long x 9-13/32″ tall x 2-5/16′ wide–gets it into tight spaces and can take on tough tasks such as drilling up to 1-3/8″ holes in wood or 1/2″-diameter holes in metal. In driving mode, the tool can drive M5 machine screws, 1/4″-diameter wood and self-tapping screws easily and repetitively. The tool’s beefy four-brush motor puts out power and takes on difficult tasks with much less chance of burning the motor out on jobs users sometimes expect the tool to do. The variable speed, reversible tool has a two-speed transmission that efficiently converts the motor’s power into drilling/driving power. Users will find the 80-600 rpm low speed helpful in deep wood-drilling and -driving jobs, while the 220-1,750 rpm high speed works best in most metal drilling jobs. An electric brake stops chuck spin instantly when the trigger is released. A built-in LED light makes work in dark areas easier and a belt hook keeps the tool close at hand when it’s not in use. The 18-stage clutch lets the user adjust driving force to the job. It adjusts from approximately 4.3 to 39.0 in. lbs. in 2 in. lbs. increments, so driving force matches driving needs without overdriving or stripping fasteners. At just 4.30 lbs. including the battery, the tool’s light weight and ergonomic design helps keep the user’s wrist in the neutral position. The light weight and tool design work together to cause less fatigue and improve tool control. Water and Dust Resistance Like many Panasonic tools, the cordless drill and driver EY74A1X (tool body only) are Tough IP56 rated. That means they passed demanding laboratory tests of working in extremely dusty work environments and the effects of water getting sprayed on the tool by powerful jets. In the field, it assures professional tradesmen have a tool that can stand up to the rigors of hard jobsite use. The IP rating is established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and is outlined in IEC 60529. The standard outlines a coding system that indicates the degree of protection an electrical machine’s enclosure offers internal components. Based on objective testing, it assigns a rating to the enclosure’s ability to keep potentially damaging solid foreign objects (dust and contaminants) and water out of the tool under increasingly difficult conditions. The dust protection test subjects the tool to a very dusty environment and then puts it to work to assure the tool was unaffected by dust exposure. In the grueling test, the tool proved that it achieved a dust protection level of five out of six levels; the sixth level is for dust-tight tools. It’s a good indication that the tool’s design keeps potentially harmful contaminants out, assuring long life and top performance that professionals demand. Similarly, the water protection test put the tool up against increasing levels of water exposure. It attained a six out of eight levels rating, withstanding the effects of powerful water jets. Whether it’s extremely dust work conditions or work in damp or wet locations, users will appreciate a tool that will keep working when others would likely fail. Consult the safety and operating instructions for more information. Long-Lasting 4.2Ah Battery Packs The EY74A1X cordless drill and driver with dual-voltage technology can be powered by Panasonic’s exclusive 14.4-volt (EY9L45B) or 18-volt (EY9L51B) 4.2Ah LS Li-ion battery pack, which are built for heavy use, long run times between charges, and long cycle life. Unlike manganese-based Li-ion batteries used in many cordless power tools, Panasonic’s exclusive Li-ion battery technology produces less internal heat buildup that can kill battery packs. The battery packs also feature Panasonic’s Solid Solution technology, a proprietary process for dissolving and hardening cobalt and nickel and other key battery components. This unique chemistry dramatically improves battery pack safety, reliability, and power output. A special heat-resistant ceramic coating layer separates cells and protects them from heat buildup. Together, the chemistry, battery design and manufacturing process add up to powerful batteries that promise to deliver long running lives. Battery Protection Sometimes professional users are their own tool’s worst enemy, attempting to push them past their design limits. This can lead to irreversible battery or tool damage. That’s why Panasonic 4.2Ah LS battery pack cells 14.4-volt (EY9L45B) or 18-volt (EY9L51B) are independently monitored for even discharge while preventing over-charging and over-discharging. An over-discharge sensor prevents the user from running the tool after it reaches the point where too-low voltage output could damage the battery or the tool. Plus, an internal temperature sensor flashes a warning light if internal temperatures rise, and then cuts off tool power if the battery temperature reaches critical levels. Water getting into the battery doesn’t have to mean it’s a goner. Panasonic engineers have added vents built in the battery case so water can easily drain out of the battery pack. The battery, which is easy to remove using a simple slide-down release button, can charge to 80-percent capacity in 65 minutes and fully charge in 80 minutes when charged with the EY0L81B charger.
