The drill is a universal and widespread construction tool, at first glance very similar to a puncher. But this is only an error that is characteristic of young and inexperienced masters.
It would seem that the purpose of both the drill and the perforator is to create holes, so the tools are identical. But there is a difference, and considerable.
To understand what exactly a drill differs from a puncher, you need to understand their technical characteristics.
The main differences between the instrument
So, the main purpose of the puncher -Drilling holes in strong materials such as concrete, artificial and natural stone, as well as bricks. This is possible due to the particularly strong borax, which in the design of the puncher is replaced by drills. If you do not go into the technical details, you can say that one of the characteristic differences between a drill and a perforator is the principle of operation. That is, the mechanism of the perforator is tuned for impact, while the drill operates on the principle of rotation. Simply put, the perforator knocks out holes, and drills them. The impact principle, on the basis of which the perforator operates, makes it possible to use the tool in working with high-strength building materials.
In addition, it is worth highlighting the differences inConsumption of electricity. Despite the percussion principle of operation, the puncher requires much less power, which means that the tool economically consumes electricity. But here it is worth noting that the puncher is still a professional tool and is often used in large-scale construction than in cosmetic repairs. Agree, it is not in every repair that you need to trowel the concrete reinforced walls or knock out holes in the stone. Therefore, most often the puncher is used in large-scale construction.
The main advantage and at the same time the lack of a puncher is a shock function that allows you to hollow holes in the stone, but is not at all suitable for working with plastic, wood or metal.
Advantages of the drill
Modern drill - multifunctionalA tool that is often equipped with a shock function. In addition, in some models it is possible to use perforating drills in a drill. But at the same time a special nozzle must be used, otherwise the tool can be damaged. And yet the main purpose of the drill is drilling of soft building materials, such as chipboard, wood and iron.
In the home construction, some models of drillsCan be used in a wider work front. Thanks to special additional attachments, the drill can easily be turned into a pump, a construction mixer or a nibbling shear.
Unlike the perforator, the drill is a more accurate and multifunctional tool that allows not only to work with different materials but to drill holes of rather small diameter.
The drill belongs to a rotary power tool and has several varieties: corner drills, drill-screwdrivers and drill mixers.
Summarizing the main differences between the drillPerforator, it is impossible to say unambiguously which tool is more in demand in construction. Depending on the tasks and materials to be processed, it is advisable to use both a perforator and a drill. The main thing in this case is to clearly understand the basic purpose of each instrument.
