Does this come with a battery?
Yes, this model includes 2 batteries and one charger.
What accessories does this kit include?
In addition to the WX178L and WX290L tools, this kit includes two 20V Max Lithium batteries, a charger, a double-ended bit as well as a tool bag to hold all of it.
What are the dimensions of the tool bag?
The tool bag measures 13" long x 6" wide x 7.5" deep.
How heavy are the tools included in this kit?
The Ai Drill lets you work smarter, not harder, which means not carrying around extra weight. At less than 3 pounds without the battery installed, the Ai Drill lets you put your muscle where it counts, not in your drill.
At only 2.6 lbs, the WORX Impact Driver is surprisingly lightweight, but delivers an efficient punch you'd only expect from a heavier driver.
What makes the WORX Ai Drill unique when compared to other drills?
The WORX Ai Drill takes your drill to the next level, making it easier for beginners to use and giving professionals an edge. Three features make the Ai Drill more than just your average drill. BitLock is an automated bit tightening that gives you the perfect chuck tension every time, with 30% more holding force than hand-tightening the chuck. SafeDrive stops driven screws flush with the work surface, preventing damage to the work and the screw. No more accidental stripping or over-sinking a screw. Pulse Assist adds bursts of force to help prevent slipping, which means that drilling into hard surfaces and driving or removing soft or worn screws is easier than ever before.
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 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 do the Ai Drill and Cordless Impact Driver have? What is the Cordless Impact Driver's impact rate?
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. The 20V Cordless Impact Driver tackles the heavier jobs. With a maximum of up to 950 in/lbs of torque and an impact rate of up to 3000 ipm, the Cordless Impact Driver will provide all the power you'll need for large, difficult fasteners or removing stubborn, rusted ones.
What kind of chuck do these tools 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 ring 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.
The Cordless Impact Driver uses a quick change chuck to make changing bits easy. To install a bit, pull the collet locking sleeve away from the body of the drill. Install the bit and release the collar. That's it. It's that simple.
What bits do the Ai Drill and Cordless Impact Driver 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". Worx offers a 67-Piece Drill Bit set and a 16-Piece Drill Bit & Drive set.
The 20V Cordless Impact Drill Driver takes 1/4" hex bits. The 16-Piece Drill & Drive Bit Set includes compatible bits.
You can find additional compatible bits to suit any job at your local hardware or home improvement store or anywhere that sells drill bits.
Why is there no clutch on the Ai Drill? How are drilling and driving modes changed on the WORX 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. 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.
What is the variable speed trigger on the WORX Ai Drill? Does the Cordless Impact Driver have multiple speed settings?
Both tools are equipped with a variable speed control trigger that allows you to customize the speed of rotation. With the variable speed trigger, the rotation speed increases as you apply more pressure on the trigger.
Does this use the same battery as my other 20V Worx tools?
Yes! With Power Share, you can share the battery and save money. Your Ai Drill and 20V Cordless Impact Driver can use any Worx 20V battery you already have. By sharing the battery between tools, you’ll always have the power you need to complete any job.

How long does it take to charge the 20V MAX battery??
It takes approximately 5 hours to fully charge the battery with the included charger.
Additional fast charging options are available.
How long will the batteries last?
Run time depends on the tool, 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.
Will a battery-operated saw be powerful enough to get the job done?
The 20V Worx MAX Lithium battery included with the WORX Ai Drill and Cordless Impact Driver is the same battery we trust to power the JawSaw, and our ExacTrack Circular Saw, among others, like the Hydroshot and Switchdriver. Since the battery can stand up to those high-powered applications, you can trust it to keep up with you in the Ai Drill and Cordless Impact Driver.
Are lithium batteries interchangeable with the Ni-Cad?
Our lithium tools and Ni-Cd tools are separate platforms and are not interchangeable. Lithium batteries offer our customers maintenance-free technology without the hassle of managing the memory effect inherent in Ni-Cad batteries.
Are the 20V MAX lithium batteries interchangeable with the 32V MAX lithium battery?
While Power Share allows you to share batteries between tools within the same voltage family, batteries should only be used with tools of a corresponding voltage. Use your 20V MAX Lithium battery with any 20V WORX tool – even the garden tools – but save your 32V battery for your 32V tools.
The included battery will take you far, but if you need more, Worx offers higher capacity batteries, as well as faster chargers.
What does it mean when the LED light on my tools flash?
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 on the Ai Drill 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.
