Black & Decker LDX120C 20-Volt Drill Machine Features

Read on for a comprehensive Black and Decker LDX120C drill press review below.

The Power it Provides

Black & Decker LDX120C 20-Volt MAX Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill/DriverBlack and Decker LDX120C drill press uses a 20-volt lithium battery that drives power. The lithium battery will provide you with more charge than the standard NiCAD batteries. Lithium batteries will charge themselves quickly as well, which results in less consumption of electricity.

The battery is light as a result; the drill machine weighs less as well. The power of the battery allows you 115 inch-pounds of torque. This torque makes drilling screws and any type of light drilling activity easier for you.

The Speed You Drill With

Being small, the machine is surprisingly quick when it comes to drilling. The drilling speed is 650 rpm when it is at its peak. Although there is only one speed setting for the drill press, you will have a trigger which you can put pressure on.

Depending on the pressure, the speed varies. This drilling machine is perfect for your home drilling but not at all fit for the construction uses or any other professional projects at all.

The Chuck Size of the Drill Machine

The chunk size of the machine is 3/8” and it has a keyless chuck for your comfort. The clutch of the machine has as many as 11 different settings you can work with. You can drill on a range of surfaces with that and fasten things.

For example, the machine works really well on drywall. The chunk size is small. It prevents you from screwing too deep in the wall. By all means, it is fit for small-time household jobs and not for big projects as I keep on saying.

The Issue of Comfort

This lightweight drill machine can be really comfortable on your hands. This drill press weighs only 45 pounds. You can use it for an extended amount of time.

Arm fatigue won’t be an issue with Black and Decker LDX120C. The soft rubber on the handle will prevent any slip-ups that might occur while drilling.

  • It is not particularly suited for commercial-graded big projects.
