The Drill/Driver features a high-performance motor and two-speed gearbox that will deliver enough power and torque to get even the toughest jobs done quickly. Low gear settings offer high torque for heavy-duty screwdriving, and the high gear provides optimum RPMs for quick drilling. The drill has a metal, single-sleeve half-inch chuck, which provides secure bit retention and solid durability.

Convenient Cordless Operation
The PC186CS 6-1/2-inch circular saw features durable and sharp carbide tips that let you make long cuts with ease and efficiency. And thanks to the cordless designs of both tools, you can work safely and efficiently on the job site. The included NiCad battery packs work interchangeably with the tools, as well as with other tools in the Porter-Cable Tradesman cordless line. Additional batteries can be purchased separately. The included fast charger minimizes downtime by recharging batteries in under an hour.
