Rated 5 out of 5 by from plenty of power for mixing Use mainly for mixing tile adhesive and grout.Make half bag batches and with paddle wheel mixes through the heavy material all day with no problem.Have been through buying cheaper drills and often they overheat , but not with rigid they have plenty of torque and power to spare.

Chuck mount 3/8-24, 1/2-20, or something else?

I am looking for keyless chuck options before buying the R7111 and would like to know the chuck mount size. Thank you.
