*BATTERY & CHARGER NOT INCLUDED

This is our tool-only version, which does not include either a battery or charger. Tool-only models allow you to take full advantage of our Power Share platform to save money by using the 20V Worx batteries and chargers you already own.

The WORX Switchdriver is surprisingly lightweight for the power and torque it delivers. At only 2 lbs before installing the battery, it's the perfect tool for everyone from the at home DIY’er to the contractor who takes it to every job site.

The WORX Switchdriver features the innovative rotating chuck that allows you to use two different bits at the same time and switch between them one-handed. Our quick release chuck is like another pair of hands – just pull the collet locking sleeve on the chuck (away from the tool), insert the bit and let go of the collet. That’s it! Your bit is already perfectly seated and tightened. To remove the bit, pull the collet locking sleeve away from the tool and remove the bit. It’s that simple.

The innovative chuck on the WORX Switchdriver was designed with convenience in mind so you can get the job done instead of wasting time changing bits. To rotate the chuck, squeeze the red dual chuck release button over the on/off switch on the Switchdriver. While holding it down, rotate the chuck until it clicks into place. Many people use their thigh or forearm to turn the chuck while keeping one hand on the work. For your safety, the Switchdriver on/off switch will not operate until the chuck is clicked securely into the correct position, which will also prevent it from accidentally turning while in use. Always make sure the chuck has “clicked” into place before using the tool.

The speed of the Switchdriver can be controlled two ways. On top of the unit, there’s a two-position switch for selecting a low speed setting (providing more torque for drilling, difficult materials, or long bolts), or a high-speed setting (less torque for lower resistance jobs, like installing screws in pre-drilled holes). Additionally, the on/off switch is pressure sensitive to determine how fast the WORX Switchdriver operates. The more pressure, the faster the speed.

The red dial on the WORX Switchdriver is an electronic torque adjusting dial. Torque is a measurement of turning power. Switchdriver has about 265 inch-pounds of torque, which is excellent for drills of its size and class. The electronic torque adjusting dial allows you to control how much turning power your Switchdriver will exert and whether the electronic clutch will be applied during the task.

Drills have clutches in them to prevent over-driving screws. Most drills use a mechanical clutch, but Switchdriver has a clutch controlled by an electronic PCB. Set the clutch on a low number when screws are small or soft and cannot handle a lot of force put to them. For big fasteners, or tough materials, set the clutch on a high number. If the screw drives too far into wood, or breaks off, set the clutch to a lower setting. If the screw will not drive flush with the work surface, increase the clutch setting. Setting the clutch requires some trial and error. If possible, practice on a scrap workpiece first.

Not necessarily. Different packages contain different items. To be sure you’ve received everything, be sure to look at your model number in the “accessories” chart in the manual. Our 16 and 67 piece kits will include a variety of bits for everything from drilling to driving. And if your kit doesn’t come with a particular bit you need, you can use any standard 1/4 inch hex bits in your Switchdriver.

  • The Switchdriver can handle just about any job you throw at it. Because of the light weight and compact size, it is excellent for jobs like hanging blinds, curtain rods and pictures. But there is plenty of power to handle driving deck screws or mounting hardware in brick or masonry. With two speed settings, the Switchdriver can drill everything from soft wood to hard metal.

    Almost any job involving driving screws into wood will have a better result if there is a hole predrilled for the screw. Predrilling helps the screw’s threads cut into the wood easier, so less force need be placed on the screw. The lower force helps prevent the wood from splitting, keeps the screwdriving bit from slipping and damaging the screw and aids in driving a screw straight.

The Switchdriver can tackle just about any job a standard 20V drill can. Because of the compact size, the Switchdriver can fit into tight spaces that other drills cannot. And the light weight reduces the fatigue of fighting a heavy drill. Jobs involving repeated bit changes get done much faster because the bit change process is streamlined. Many people hold the work piece and fastener in one hand, predrill a pilot hole then drive a fastener with the Switchdriver in other hand. The release button for the dual chuck is close to the trigger. Depress the release button then turn the chuck by pushing it against a firm surface. Many people use their thigh or forearm to actually turn the dual chuck.

In wood, maximum recommended hole size is 1-3/16”. Avoid drilling holes larger than 3/8” in metal.

Yes! With Powershare, you can share the battery and save money. Your WORX Switchdriver 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.

Check out the full line of 20V PowerShare tools here.

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 Switchdriver will stop itself momentarily if the job application drains power too quickly. Simply release the trigger to reset the driver. If problem persists, check that the speed selector is on “1”, which is the more powerful, though slightly slower, speed.
