What drill for K-Drill?

So was going Ion, but figured I'd get more use out of a drill.
BUT it would have to be a DeWalt 20v as that is what I have.
Looking at this, but wasn't sure if "hammer" style would be correct.

Look at that, the K-Drill site lists that model.
Who knew?

When I go that route I plan on using the Ryobi brushless. Just because I have 7 batteries for that system already.

I did see that someone tore the handle from the motor housing. So I would use the second handle. We will see if that works or Grandpa is still right, "buy it right or buy it twice".

Lets try this again.

Brand doesn't matter as much as long as your drill meets the minimum specs. Here is what krill lists on their site for minimum specs.

Side Stabilizer Arm (for a secure two-handed grip)
1/2 Drill Chuck
18 Volt/4 Amp Lithium Ion Battery (or higher)
Brushless Motor Design
500-750 RPM with a minimum of 725 in/lbs or 820 UWO of torque

Go with a good brushless drill and pick one that fits whatever you will use it for off the ice. I went with a Milwaukee M18 Hammer Drill. This works great on the auger, and has worked great around the house. Ive used the "hammer" setting a couple of times on concrete

On 3rd season with a k-drill/m-18,,,knowing what I've learned thus far, by design believe the chipper blade used on the k-drill is why the torqued up drills are needed.

Since then there seems to be several other options for drill operated augers on the market now,personally think the clam attachment is a user friendly option although will add some weight/cost but would be more ergonomic to the user.

If an individual is not dead set on a k-drill,,,thinking about other drill/auger bit combo's is a good option thats not only do-able ,but will probably be less exspensive and every bit as functional. like alot of items today,,, Ford/Chevy/Dodge

good luck
