I need to solve a question.   I have the Dwd450 1/2” right angle corded drill.  It’s being tested in a pretty harsh environment where we are are in a field with a 3” soil auger and drilling 12” deep holes in the dirt. We are trying to drill 1000 (100 per hour)holes a day.  Any thoughts on if it can take this kind of work load? Second part is as I was testing it I had one guy that would trigger the drill on/off repeatedly to kind of feather his way down making the hole.  I think he should just pull the trigger and hold it until the hole is complete and just regulate downward pressure but keep the motor running.  Can anyone tell me if the excessive triggering will lead to any problems or will it damage the motor more that the single pull method over the course of the work?   My theory is that the frequent trigger pull will wear internal motor components out much faster than the single pull and hold…just need an expert to weigh in.  Thanks!
