The PressureHandle is an add-on accessory for high-end, handheld power drills. Turning the rotating grip on the PressureHandle activates a 30:1 reduction gear and chain, drawing the drill bit into the material being drilled at a constant pressure.
Team FIN farmer Steve Webb recently tested the PressureHandle on his farm. Here's what he had to say about it.
THE PRESSUREHANDLE makes many tough drilling jobs easier, but it takes some getting used to.
At first it felt strange that I didn't need to use any muscle power to push in the drill. The PressureHandle provides all the force, pulling the drill bit in much more efficiently than I could ever push it. Instead of pushing, I needed to concentrate more on guiding the drill in straight and accurately.
I think the PressureHandle is a very good product, and its simplicity and quality materials should translate to years of reliable service. If you do a lot of drilling, it's probably worth the $159 price.
