Please Note: You will need to use a good drill with a side handle, like you see in this photo. Using the drill driver on a drill without a side handle will cause the pad to hop on the carpet. --- We recommend getting a good drill since you'll be putting a fair amount of torque on the drill. A good quality DeWalt drill with a side handle can be purchased for around $100 at Home Depot. Black & Decker also sells a lower quality drill with a side handle for about $50 at Home Depot that can be used for lighter work; but the DeWalt is a better choice for heavy usage. An angle grinder is another option for using with the Drill Driver.
