Worx Blockbuster Hammer Drill/Driver

worx_blockbuster.jpgWorx has recently released a very interesting looking hammer drill/driver in their Revolver line of tools. The Revolver tools are all based on an intriguing ergonomic design that, according to the Worx website,

“…is a tribute to the fundamental principal of ergonomics. It is the first and only line of power tools that adapts themselves to fit people and their jobs, rather than the other way around.”

The primary feature of the Revolver tools is a rotating handle that adjusts to your needs depending on your angle of approach. If you’re working down low and are above the tool, you have the ability to shift the handle to the top of the tool, relieving stress on both your wrist and back. The same goes for if you are working overhead. The handle has an astounding 65 degrees of rotation to accommodate the user.

The Blockbuster has this style of handle as well as a number of other standard features. The tool has a 1/2” keyless chuck, 6-1/2 amps of power, an auxiliary handle, and a depth stop. At 5-1/2 lbs it is a bit heavier than the comparable DeWalt hammer drill (4.8 lbs), but maybe with the ergonomic handle, that weight disappears.

The Blockbuster sells for around $130 and comes with a carrying case.
