Panasonic 14.4V Multi-Impact & Drill Driver (Bare Tool)Model: EY7549X
Panasonic introduces a revolution in cordless power tool design. An innovative, dual-mode system transforms the EY7549 from a drill & driver to an impact driver with the flick of a switch. Panasonics' Multi Tool design is a single tool that can replace your 2 speed variable speed drill, ¼" hex quick change impact driver and impact ½" square drive impact wrench. Engineered for the demands of professional use, the Panasonic combination drill driver/impact driver is ideal for general construction, maintenance, auto repair, and light manufacturing.

As a powerful drill driver, the new EY7549 is ideal for a variety of applications. Users can just snap on the lightweight half-inch keyless chuck for high-speed drilling in wood and metal. A one-touch release allows for instant removal of the keyless chuck. The ¼" hex quick-change chuck attachment can be used for convenience when switching between bits.
With the flick of a switch to the impact mode, the multi drill & driver is instantly set for high speed and heavy-duty fastening in wood, metal, and even concrete. Use the ¼" hex quick-change chuck attachment along with the high speed to fasten self-drilling screws into metal. Employ the half-inch square drive with hex sockets to fasten lag bolts, carriage bolts, and concrete anchors. The EY7549 delivers high power (1,327 in. lbs., 3,200 ipm) for these heavy-duty fastening jobs, with minimal kickback to the user.
Only weighing 4.5lbs with the battery pack, this compact tool is powered by Panasonic''s 4.2Ah li-ion battery pack and delivers superior run time. In drill mode drill up to 120 holes 1-3/16" diameter into 2"x4" material on a single charge. Or consider installing 450 self-drilling (5/32" x ½") into SPC on a single charge in impact mode. Why not lighten your load and carry one tool instead of two and know that the tool you've choose will last.
The importance of ergonomics continues to grow and it's one of the reasons Panasonic created this tool. The lightweight balanced design and cushioned grip helps reduce fatigue. Another advantage to the Multi Tool is it reduces the weight of your tool bag by eliminating the need to carry two tools.
Better Control of the Fastening Process
Controlling the fastening process is ideal for correct thread alignment and full socket insertion. In combination when drilling, the two speed switch and the variable speed trigger allows complete control of the fastening process. When in impact mode, the variable speed trigger assists in starting fasteners, socket insertion and allows for much faster working speeds kick back free.
Tough IP - IP56 Rating
With the addition of electronics in today's power tools and batteries it has become critical to protect the electronics. Panasonic's solution, Tough IP Tools, designed with protection features to meet an International Protection Code of IP56. The IP56 rating means the tools passed demanding laboratory tests of working in extremely dusty and wet work environments. In the field, it assures professional tradesmen have a tool that can stand up to the rigors of hard jobsite use.
Whether it's extremely dust work conditions or work in damp or wet locations, users will appreciate a tool that will keep working when others would likely fail.
IP56 In Depth - the IP rating was established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and is outlined in IEC 60529. The standard outlines a coding system that indicates the degree of protection an electrical enclosure offers internal components. Based on objective testing, it assigns a rating to the enclosure's ability to keep potentially damaging foreign objects (dust and contaminants) and water out of the tool under increasingly difficult conditions.
"5" Dust Protection Test - subjects the tool to a very dusty environment and then puts it to work to assure the tool was unaffected by dust exposure. In the grueling test, the tool proved that it achieved a dust protection level of five out of six levels; the sixth level is for dust-tight tools. It's a good indication that the tool's design keeps potentially harmful contaminants out, assuring long life and top performance that professionals demand.
"6" Water Protection Test – subjects the tool with increased levels of water exposure testing the limits of the tool. The tool obtained a six out of eight level rating withstanding powerful water jets providing assurance that the tool will continue to run even in the rain or other wet environments.

4.2 Ah High Capacity Lithium Nickel Battery
Panasonic's 4.2Ah Li-Ion high capacity batteries are the highest rated battery capacity in the cordless tool market. All of Panasonic's li-ion batteries are built with smart technology which constantly monitors the battery to prevent over-charging; over-discharging and it can shut down the battery under extreme temperatures. During the charging cycle, the smart board allows the battery to be charged quickly to 80% capacity then switches to a cell conditioning to assure each of the cells are topped off evenly. Monitoring the voltage for over-discharge prevents users from running the tool after it reaches to low of voltage which could damage the battery or the tool. Plus, an internal temperature sensor flashes a warning light if internal temperatures rise, and then cuts off tool power if battery temperature reaches critical levels.
Water getting into the battery doesn't have to mean it's a goner. Panasonic engineers have added vents built in the battery case so water can easily drain out of the battery pack. The battery, which is easy to remove using a simple slide-down release button, can charge to 80 percent capacity in 55 minutes and fully charge in 70 minutes when charged with the EY0L82B charger.
Illuminating the Work Area
When activated a built-in LED light turns on to illuminate the work area. An additional feature of the tool to conserve battery power is an auto shut-off timer for the LED once the tool is not operated for 5 minutes.
