Key Features

The WORX Switchdriver 20V Cordless Drill & Driver features rotating dual chucks, so you can hold multiple bit pairings and get your work done twice as fast, with half the hassle. No more fumbling around for loose bits. Includes a 3 Year Warranty & 30 Day Money Back Guarantee.

ROTATING CHUCK

The Switchdriver features rotating dual chucks that may be loaded with an endless combination of drilling and driving bits. The two basic functions of a cordless drill are drilling holes and driving screws. What if a drill could perform either task with the flip of a chuck? That’s what the engineers at WORX had in mind when they developed the new WORX 20V MaxLithium Switchdriver. This hybrid cordless drill features two ¼ inch chucks that rotate 180 degree clockwise or counterclockwise with the push of a button.

Frequently Asked Questions

How heavy is the WORX Switchdriver?

The WORX Switchdriver is surprisingly lightweight for the power and torque it delivers. Even with the battery installed, it only weighs 3.1 lbs, making it the perfect tool for everyone from the at home DIY’er to the contractor who takes it to every job site.

What kind of bits does the WORX Switchdriver use?

The WORX Switchdriver uses standard 1/4 inch hex bits. You can use any standard 1/4 inch hex bits you already have, or purchase bits from your favorite retailer.

What kind of chuck is on the Switchdriver? How do I change bits and tighten them?

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.

What is the difference between the two chucks of the Switchdriver?

The two chucks are functionally the same.

The chuck on the WORX Switchdriver can be changed with one hand. How does that work, and will it turn while I’m trying to work?

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 video shows that the WORX Switchdriver is variable speed. How do I control the speed?

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.

There’s a red dial just above my battery. What is this for?

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.

What is the electronic clutch?

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.

The manual shows bits/parts I didn’t receive with my tool. Was something left out of my package?

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.

How long can you use the WORX Switchdriver on each 20 Volt Max Lithium battery charge?

Runtime will vary from job to job, and sometimes between users, depending on how each person works. To maximize the runtime you get out of the battery, use the appropriate speed for the job at hand. The lower speed settings deliver more torque for jobs that need more power, and higher speeds provide lower torque for jobs with less resistance. Since most jobs will require different combinations of speed and torque and lower and faster speeds, actual runtime results will vary. The battery included with your Switchdriver will take you far, but remember you can also use the 20V Worx batteries you already have so you’ll never be out of power.

I’m a homeowner, what can it do for me?

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.

I’m a remodeler/contractor, what can it do for me?

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.

What are the drilling capacities of the Switchdriver?

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

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 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.

How long does it take to charge the 20 Volt Max battery?

It takes approximately 3 - 5 hours to fully charge the battery.

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 20 Volt Max Lithium batteries interchangeable with the 32 Volt Max Lithium Battery?

While Powershare 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.

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 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.

Popular Mechanics

"The Switchdriver is a cordless drill/driver with two spring-loaded 1/4-inch chucks, one for a drill bit the other for a drive bit. Click in whatever hex shank bit will do the job, drill, then simply turn the nose assembly to the next bit and drive. It’s a great idea that demonstrates fresh thinking about how to handle this common two-part chore."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SWITCH DRILL I HAVE A POLE CHAIN SAW, BLOWER, EDGER AND THE SWITCH DRILL. AND IN THAT THEY ALL TAKE THE SAME 20 V BATT. I HAVE NO PROBLEM KEEPING THEM GOING. THE SWITCH DRILL I LIKE THE BEST WHEN I'M BUILDING OR REPAIRING SOMETHING.. IT SAVES A LOT OF TIME. I DID HAVE TO BUY A SET OF DRILLS TO FIT THE CHUCK. THEY ARE ALL EASY TO USE AND THAT IS IMPORTANT TO ME AS I'M 94 YEARS OLD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, 2 batteries, and enough power. I'm so glad to have the switchdriver...great idea. It makes my household jobs so easy! It's also light enough for me.
Date published: 2017-06-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable Tool I've been using power tools for over 50 years and this is the best investment in tools I've ever made. Being able to switch back and forth between a drill bit and screw driver rather than toting two drills to do the same job is a God-send. Plus it is lighter than either of my other drills and the battery lasts longer. Bravo!
