The Makita DA4031 has a torque limiter (low speed only) if the bit binds.

The HoleHawg do have clutch toqure limiting device but only enabled during low speed mode { the later models have them but not earlier models }

For variable speed I know Miluwakee drills do have them but for other brands IDK .,

But the main issue is make sure your bits is sharp so you will not have very much effort to bore thru the wall or studs but let me pass ya the tip if you going to bore more than 1.5 inch hole or larger try to use self feeding boring bit it is little safer than holesaw in someway but if you get them off centre it will bind up just like any other bits.

The self feeding boring bits are not cheap but it worth it espcally the large numbers I have to bore out.

The two inch self feed boring bit I have it cost me about **50 Euros.

Just be careful with it...it'll put a hurtin' on ya if you get between it and anything substantial.
Agree, I've hit a nail when using this drill. The drill turned on me. Ouch. But it does work really well. I've used that right angle attachment that someone posted from Amazon. The last one I had broke when trying to drill a hole in the top plate.

At this point, the largest holes I expect to be drilling are 1" for electric cables. I don't expect any large scale plumbing jobs. Maybe 3/4" copper pipe, but when it comes to anything larger, I'll call the pro.

I've got a few "Nail Eater" bits by Irwin, which I really like. They go through the headers in a few seconds, where it used to take minutes and a lot of stopping and re-starting (so the drill bit wouldn't get too hot) when I was using the spade bits. I haven't used a hole-saw for quite some time, and never on anything thicker than about 1". I used to use them on my model RR to cut out tunnels for the trains.
