Drills & Torque ...Crazy...
 
Is it me or has anyone else noticed that drills don't show how much torque they can produce?

I was out looking for a drill and found it hard to compare one with the other. Drills show their RPM's, but make no mention to their torque output. Why is this? All drills have different gearing and therefore it would be nice to know how much torque a drill can perform?

Drills seem to only show mainly two things:
1) RPM of the drill
2) AMPS

Well what good is that? So hopefully someone can enlighten me. I suppose based on the RPM and AMPS you can probably estimate the torque output...but still. I have to ask.

Ayuh,.... More amps, equals more Power...

Lower the rpm the more torque their is. More amps Is more torque too but rpms makes a bigger differance. Go to bosch's website. They list the torque of their drills on inch lbs. look at their corded drills and you will see how a 1100tpm drill makes 279inch lbs while a 0-850 makes 373 and the higher amped 0-850 makes 472. The 0-550 model makes a whopping 767 w/ 8 Amps. Most bosch corded drills are made in switzerland and are quite nice! http://www.boschtools.com/Products/T...spx?catid=1570

And all amps(aka motor ratings) are not created equally. Milwaukee corded drills typically pull more amps under load then their competitors.

I think if you go on the manufactures website you can get the torque ratings.
