What's the Spec and Features of the Fein ASB18 Combi Drill?

We're dealing with a combi drill, so far starters you've got hammer action, allowing you to drill into masonry and brick, holes up to 14mm, outputting between 9,350 and 29,000 impacts per minute. A very capable tool for drilling for fixings etc.

With the appropriate bit fitted it'll make 13mm holes in steel easily. Just make sure you've selected the correct speed from the selector on the top of the drill, then you'll have from between 550 and 1600rpm available to you from the motor. And in wood you'll be able to drill holes up to a very respectable 50mm in diameter.

When it comes to screwdriving the the ASB18 is a little belter, with Fein claiming you'll be able to drive eight 300mm screws without any pre-drilling per battery charge. As for normal fixing screws, you'll expect to drive around 750 of them per charged battery.

The battery is 4Ah and 18v, so it's "up there" in terms of what you expect to get in the market. However, one thing that's a clear bonus of buying a Fein cordless power tool is that you'll get a 3 year warranty on everything in the box; the drill, the battery and the charger.

Fein's pretty confident that its SafetyCell technology, found in the batteries, will prevent you from having to get the tool repaired! This technology communicates between the battery, the switch and the motor to make sure they're all working in harmony, protecting the tool from overheating or overloading. Longer life for the power tool, less down-time for you.

The "heavy duty" component of the ASB18 is found in the motor itself, and in the chuck. The former is a 4-pole DC solid metal motor, giving you plenty of grunt, including the ability to drill 50mm holes in wood, but also outputting up to 60Nm of torque across 24 clutch settings. The latter is a robust all metal job that'll grip your bits like a vice, while also being able to take a knock on the jobsite.

All of this is packed into a surprisingly compact package, replete with ergonomic grip. As you can from our demo above, the ASB18 sits beautifully in the hand; a very well balanced but tough combi drill.

Fein may be best known for their top-of-the-range multi-cutters, but as we've been seeing recently on the Toolstop Blog, there's a good few more strings to the German company's bow, with some fantastic grinders and drills now available to you guys from our website.
