The Torro from Skil makes DIY easy for people who have little experience of using power tools: it drills into all common materials such as wood, metal, masonry and even concrete, eliminating the need to ask which tool is suitable for which application. Moreover, it saves you having to figure out whether you have to drill with or without impact: all you have to do is use the self-explanatory symbols to select the corresponding material and then make the correct setting by simply turning the switch.

Covers all common applications and ensures low vibration
The Torro offers 550 watts of power and has an optimized ratchet-con­trolled impact mechanism which generates a maximum of 45,000 blows per minute and enables powerful drilling up to a diameter of 16 millimeters in masonry and ten millimeters in concrete. When you select wood and metal as the materials, the impact is automatically deactivated and the tool drills holes up to 35 millimeters in wood and 13 millimeters in steel. All typical applications are therefore covered, from making dowel holes through to drilling rows of holes in wood or metal profiles. The speed of 3,000 revolutions per minute enables work to be done quickly. The vibration reduction system ensures a high level of comfort because the handle and the housing are decoupled from each other. This minimizes vibration and ensures good control over the tool. The low weight of 1.9 kilograms also contributes to this.

The Torro has an “Easy Lock” chuck for tool-free accessory changes: turning the switch to the corresponding symbol will cause the spindle to lock, enabling the do-it-yourselfer to conveniently change the accessory with both hands. Standard straight shank drill bits can be clamped in the chuck. The features are completed by an auxiliary handle, a depth stop and a large accelerator switch with lock-on function for continuous work.

The Torro will be available from September 2012 onwards at the recommended retail price of 59.99 euros including VAT. It comes complete with a six-millimeter masonry drill bit.
