Increase Productivity
Use BitLock™ to quickly and easily lock or unlock bits so you can keep your project moving. Hard-to-reach areas or unstable surfaces are now a cinch, as the Ai Drill enables one-hand operation freeing your other hand to secure the materials or sturdy yourself.
20V Ai Drill & Driver - WX178L | WORX
Eliminate Damage
Power drills typically cause damage to surfaces by driving screws past flush. Safe Drive delivers the exact amount of torque necessary to drive into almost any material or surface, then lapses into Pulse Assist mode once the screw is flush.
20V Ai Drill & Driver - WX178L | WORX
No More Stripped Screws
The Ai Drill applies the exact bit rotation to drive the screw snug to the surface without overtightening or stripping the screw head, and also works in reverse at a slow optimal speed to back out stubborn screws without damaging the screw head.
20V Ai Drill & Driver - WX178L | WORX
Work on any surface
Typical drills require the user to select various clutch settings dependent upon their working surface. The Ai Drill has no clutch settings, instead relying entirely its own internal intelligence that lets you safely drill holes, drive and remove screws, no matter the surface.

FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions

Does this come with a battery?

Yes, this model includes 1 battery.

How heavy is the Worx Ai Drill?

The Ai Drill lets you work smarter, not harder, especially at only about 3 pounds with the battery installed. Put your muscle where it counts, not in your drill.

I’m just learning to use a drill, what can it do for me?

The Ai Drill is designed to make using a drill simple. The BitLock chuck opens and closes with a twist of the switch to make installing and removing bits much easier without the hassle of trying to tighten the chuck. Also, the bits are held 30% tighter than average with manual tightening to eliminate the tendency for the chuck to loosen and bits to fall out.

SafeDrive monitors the screw driving function. When the head of the screw is driven close to the work surface, the driver automatically stops and shifts into Pulse Assist mode for perfect screwdriving results every time without setting a clutch.

Pulse Assist mode is helpful when trying to start drilling slick surfaces, such as tile or metal, starting screws, and dealing with rusted or difficult to remove screws and nuts. The intermittent surging and slowing of Pulse Assist improves control over the speed of rotation and prevents the bit from spinning freely and causing damage, which prevents rounding and stripping of screws and removes already damaged screws easily and without further damage.

I’m skilled at using a drill, what can it do for me?

The Ai Drill can tackle any job a standard 20V drill can, only better. Pulse Assist not only prevents stripping screws, it can help remove damaged screws, and provide better control when starting screws or holes in hard, slick surfaces like tile or metal.

The BitLock chuck tightens 30% more on average than manual tightening to help prevent bits from slipping, and since BitLock can be operated with one hand, the other hand is free to hold the workpiece.

SafeDrive eliminates the need to set a clutch, which eliminates the time-consuming trial and error setting for a mechanical clutch. SafeDrive also works great for installing drywall without needing a screw gun or other attachment.

What bits does the Ai Drill use and where can I buy them?

The Ai Drill uses both hex shank and round shank drilling and driving bits up to 3/8". These are available at home centers, hardware stores and anywhere that sells drill bits.

What are the drilling capacities of the Worx Ai Drill?

In wood, the maximum recommended hole size is 1”. Avoid drilling holes larger than 3/8” in metal.

How much torque does the Ai Drill have?

Torque is a measurement of turning power. The Worx Ai Drill has about 180 inch-pounds of torque letting it easily master most common drilling and driving applications around the house.

What kind of chuck does the Ai Drill have?

Ai Drill makes the best use of the familiar and innovation to make it easier and faster to use. Internally, the Ai Drill chuck is a typical, 3/8” 3-jaw chuck that can hold round or hex shank bits just like a standard drill driver. Externally, however, the design is different. The blue BitLock rink opens and closes the jaws of the chuck without the hassle of manually tightening. Turn the ring in direction of the symbols for lock and unlock to easily remove or securely install a bit.

Why is there no clutch on the Ai Drill?

The Worx Ai Drill has a clutch, but instead of a typical trial-and-error clutch, SafeDrive mode is an internal, automatic clutch. Simply begin by holding the trigger down constantly. The driver will detect when the screw is driven to the work surface and stop briefly. Release the trigger if you are happy with the screw depth. If not, hold the trigger and the driver will shift into Pulse Assist. The driver will continue to drive the screw deeper in small increments until the trigger is released.

How fast does the Ai Drill rotate?

The Ai Drill’s rotations per minute (RPM) range from 0-800/min.

What is a variable speed trigger?

The Ai Drill’s switch, or trigger, controls the speed of rotation. With the variable speed trigger, the rotation speed increases as the trigger is depressed more.

How are drilling and driving modes changed on the Worx Ai Drill?

On the top of the drill body is a keypad showing a screw, drill and Pulse icons. Press the icon for the mode you wish to use. A blue light will indicate the active mode.

How long will the batteries last?

Run time depends on the type of work, the conditions under which work is being performed, and may even vary from user to user. The batteries can be charged and discharged for about 2,000 cycles.

How long does it take to charge the battery?

The battery will recharge in about 3 to 5 hours.

Does this use the same batteries as my other 20V Worx tools?

Yes! With Powershare, you can share the battery and save money. Your Worx Ai Drill can use any Worx 20V battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools – even between power and garden tools — you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job.

What does it mean when the LED light flashes?

The flashing LED light indicates the battery charge is getting low or the battery power is interrupted. There is a built-in overload protection that will stop the tool if the battery is suddenly put under too much strain. This feature protects the battery so it will perform a long time. On rare occasion, the Ai Drill will stop itself momentarily if the job application drains power too quickly. Simply release the trigger to reset the driver.

The BitLock switch ring will not turn. What is the problem?

On rare occasions, the BitLock may get stuck between gears. Simply put the drill in either forward or reverse and pull the trigger briefly. This should allow the BitLock switch to work appropriately again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very innovative I bought this to replace a PC 18V drill / driver. I am very happy with it so far. I love the function options. The chuck closing feature is very nice. It takes a little getting use to and going from Hex drive bit to screw pilot hole drill is not always without a little tweaking the get the drill straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill I bought this drill because I have a problem with drill bits slipping in the chuck while drilling. This drill securely locks the bit into the chuck and doesn't let it slip. It also has great features like the drill not stripping screws so you can't get them out. It stops when the screw head is flush with the surface.
Date published: 2017-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I thought. We are moving into a new house. That means lots of stuff to hang. I thought this would be useful in hanging the mounts for our big screens. It worked great! Move power than I thought. It drive in 8 1/4 by 3 lag bolts. Had power to spare. The auto tightener for the bit worked very well. \I would buy this again.
Date published: 2017-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised! I put this tool to work as soon as it arrived drilling holes in 1/8" steel angle iron using the pulse feature and was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked. I did not have to punch a dimple into the metal first to keep the drill bit from wandering. It started the bit right into the steel and then easily drove the bit the rest of the way through with little effort. I next put it to use pre-drilling holes for deck screws and it went through the entire job without needing a battery recharge. My wife and I both like the compact size and light weight. The built-in work light is aim well and quite bright. Overall I am very please with this tool and have already recommended it to several friends.
