We’re teaming up with Ingersoll Rand in this sponsored post to tell you more about the Ingersoll Rand 20V Cordless Hammer Drill (model D5241). We have one in our hands and plenty of drilling and driving opportunities to help us learn more about the capabilities and design the development team built into them!
Ingersoll Rand 20V Cordless Hammer Drill Performance
When you take this drill out of the box for the first time, you can tell it’s a tool that means business. As a full-size hammer drill, it sports a monster 1100 in-lbs of torque. With that kind of power, you’ll be able to use any drill bit you can fit in the 1/2-inch all metal chuck.
This is a 2-speed drill with a gear selector on the top. When you need the most torque, low gear produces up to 500 RPM. For light to medium drilling where speed is the priority, the D5241 reaches up to 1800 RPM. In both modes, you can feather the variable speed trigger to give you more controlled drilling and driving.
When you’re drilling in concrete, the hammer drilling mode delivers 28,000 BPM.
All of this comes from a beefy brushless motor that allows for higher performance and greater efficiency than brushed motors can achieve.
To change from driving to drilling or hammer drilling, you turn the collar above the trigger. There are also 24 clutch positions to use in conjunction with the driving mode on a separate collar in front of the first. Both collars click into position solidly, and there’s almost no way you can accidentally slip either one out of place during use.
The kit includes two 5.6Ah battery, and the green label on them isn’t just for decoration. They’re part of Ingersoll Rand’s sustainable battery initiative. The design offers twice the life of the IR’s standard batteries, plus 12% higher capacity. You end up with more runtime, less waste, and you won’t be stopping to charge batteries as often.
Ingersoll Rand 20V Cordless Hammer Drill Design
The hammer drill’s size and design are very similar to other premium professional drills on the market.
It measures 7.8 inches across the top and has a working weight of 4.9 pounds, including the 5.6Ah battery. The bare weight is 3.5 pounds.
In hand, the weight is very well-balanced and the shape of the handle combined with IR’s overmold make it very comfortable to use. There’s some additional thicker overmold around the side and back of the motor housing, along with more near the foot of the tool to prevent marring whatever surface you set the tool on and to protect the tool from accidental bumps or drops.
- Foot-mounted LED light
- Carbide chuck teeth
- Removable side handle
- Compatible with all Ingersoll Rand IQV20 batteries
