The Sub-Compact drill is made for tight spaces.

Metabo HPT introduces the 18-volt Sub-Compact drill and impact driver, small, lightweight tools that will get the job done where space is limited, according to the company.

The drill features a 1/2” keyless chuck and 20 clutch settings, plus a drill mode. The brushless, variable-speed motor can reach a maximum no-load speed of up to 1,700 rpm. Other features include an ergonomic grip, center-balanced design, and LED work light.

“The 18-volt Sub-Compact cordless drill allows for precise power in the smallest of spaces,” the company said in a statement. “It delivers best in its class power with an impressive 485 in-lbs. of turning torque. At only 6.2” in length and weighing only 1.9 lbs., this sub-compact drill is 25 percent shorter and 20 percent lighter than its predecessor.”

The drill, model DS18DDX, sells for $129.

The new impact driver, model WH18DDX, measures 5.3” in length and weighs 1.8 lbs., according to the company. It sells for $139.

Metabo offers a combo kit with both tools, two 1.5Ah Li-ion batteries, charger, and carry bag for $179.
