The newest Yellow tool promises to make holes faster than any other ultra compact drill gun on the market today. However, with this greater speed does come some limitations. Unlike traditional drill guns, this model is limited to only 13 holes per charge and can only produce 11.5mm or .452 in sized holes. Its limitations might sound like a deal breaker but it also has the ability to produce holes at distances up to, and surpassing, 55 yards.
