Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this come with a battery and charger?

    Yes, this model includes 2 batteries and one charger.

  • 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.

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

  • 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 I use it almost daily I have had my Switchdriver for well over three years now and have worn almost all the paint off parts of it I use it so much. I use it on any project I need to drill to hole for except drilling masonry where nothing beats a good hammer drill. I pick out the screws needed and put the appropriate screw driver head on one arm and then put an appropriate sized drill bit with a counter sink if needed on the other arm. Switching back and forth is easy and driving wood screws into a pilot hole is quick work and eliminates fractured wood. I also drill soft metal and plastic with it. Of all the WORX products I own this is by far the one I use the most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Breed Of Tool! I was excited to get the Switchdriver for a deck project this summer. I was tired of flip-flopping between my driver and drill all the time. As soon as I received it and started using it I knew this was a special tool. It's a great tool but there is an adjustment to how this thing operates. There is a red trigger that activates the rotation of the driver/drill. There were plenty of times I wished this could be done with on hand. The ability to do both acts with on tool is awesome, though. The battery life is long and the fact that the tool comes with two is unheard of. The two bits that come with the tool are junk and broke the third time I used them. I invested in a titanium set that worked so much better. This tool has saved me a lot of time. The Switchdriver is one of those tools I've been wanting for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool. I bought this a month ago and glad I did. The only negative is the order website. I mistakenly doubled my order and wanted to cancel and correct my order (less than 5 mins) and the site did not have a place to do either. Most sites allow you a short period of time after ordering to do so. As a result I had to wait for customer service to open the next day then wait for order to deliver then deliver to fedex then wait for them to credit me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most versatile "around the house" drill ever! I've owned and used my Worx Switchdriver for a couple of years and I sincerely believe it's the most useful "around the house" drill design ever made. Before the Switchdriver, when I had a few screws to deal with on a project or a repair around the house, I'd grab the lightweight cordless screwdriver & what I hoped would be the bit I needed, then frequently find that some of the screws were slot-headed, rather than all phillips. Or, even if I checked & knew that all the screws were Phillips, I'd find one hole stripped, so I had to look for a bit to carefully drill an angled pilot hole to make sure the screw would hold in that location. Or, worse, the 4-8 volt cordless screwdriver didn't have enough torque to secure the screws well enough. The Worx Switchdriver has eliminated those aggravating issues. Having two different bits always ready to go makes a big difference because it almost eliminates having to keep up with loose bits, which tend to get lost, either from being left behind or forgotten in pockets. Keeping a Phillip's in one head & a slot in the other solves the 1st issue; bringing along the 1/8" drill bit solves the 2nd; and the 20vMax power solves the 3rd. There are only two improvements I'd suggest: 1. If possible, include an adjustable torque capability. The drill bits certainly can use all the torque it has, but it would be really helpful to be able to set a lower torque level for screws to prevent stripping out by over-torqueing. 2. While that 1st suggestion really won't help current Switchdriver owners, this one will help everyone: Offer an accessory bit holder that would be a strap to wrap around & locks onto the thin plastic guard between the trigger & the chuck that's not being used. I believe it could easily hold 4 additional bits vertically without interference: 2 on the same side of the guard as the chuck not in use and one on each edge of that plastic guard strip That would provide an inexpensive solution to the issue of sometimes needing access to 1 or more different bits in addition to the two in the drill's existing chucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has the power I'm impressed with the power of this drill, even on the 1.5 amp battery. The adjust-ability for different torque is pretty helpful to customize to the job you are doing. Additionally it is comfortable to hold and not super heavy. Yes, there are lighter drills on the market, but you'll get less features too. For example, the ability to have two bits that toggle so easily is a huge time saver and worth the extra ounces on the Switchdriver. The one downside is I didn't realize this took the 1/4 hex bits and so my drill bit collection is not easily used with this, but I've researched some adapters on the market and bought a cheap set of hex bits to get by for now.

It is a great drill to use on standard work, if you need precise drilling, it has a little movement on it.
