Product Overview


The DEWALT 60V MAX VSR Stud and Joist Drill with E-Clutch System (Tool Only) features a 1/2 in. chuck and brushless motor that provides corded power in a cordless solution. It is ideal for plumbers, electricians and HVAC installers who need to drill large diameter holes in wood. This drill provides exceptional power, control, durability, and runtime with its 60V brushless motor, E-Clutch System, mechanical clutch, and 2 variable-speed ranges. Equipped with the innovative bind-up control feature called E-Clutch System, this drill increases user control in bind-up/stall situations by sensing a stall during use and managing torque accordingly.
  • 60V Brushless Motor for increased power and runtime
  • Power of a cord with cordless freedom
  • Adjustable bail handle and 2-position side handle for leverage and control
  • 2 variable speed ranges (0-300 / 0-1250 RPM) to match appropriate speed to the application
  • E-Clutch is a Perform and Protect feature that detects reactionary torque caused by a bind-up or stall and reduces speed to a manageable level until control is regained
  • Metal-gear housing for jobsite durability and increased reliability

I used to use Milwaukee corded hole hog but after I used this I’ll never go back. This thing is a monster. Tons of power and speed. Makes drilling holes a breeze. 12/10 would recommend.

Great power
I bought this because I needed a drill to plumb a four story hotel with no power close enough to run equipment. My expectations were more then met with this still. The power is extremely good no bogging of any kind. Drill through lumber with ease. I would recommend this to anyone. The power A+ Durability A+ ease of use A+ I used it for four months non stop and still no issues

I have had this for about 6 months now. I have to say I am impressed. I am an electrician and have drilled many holes with this. I don't even take my corded hole Hawg to the job sites anymore. It it lasts longer then you might think and is very strong. The chuck holds very firmly not having to retighten it. So far I have drilled out a small commercial office space and a fire station.

Simply awesome!
I bought this primarily to replace my gas ice auger. It's a beast! Tons of power! Great battery life! Even though it's not designed as such, it's the most efficient electric auger on the market with a strikemaster Lazer auger on the end of it.
I'm an electrician, so it gets used on the job site as well. This drill can handle anything you throw at it. I can now retire the corded hole hawg.

This drill is surprisingly lightweight compared to corded tools and with new bits/hole saws delivers.

BEST ANSWER: this drill can handle anything its corded counterpart or milwaukee super hawg can. I am very satisfied with the purchase although i waited months on backorder. The eclutch is a good safety feature and led flashes shortly before the battery is going to die. Cordless plumbing rough in definitely possible with this tool and good bits.
