Brushless technology

A standard brushed motor contains small carbon brushes that transfer the energy created to the output. During this process, energy is lost on heat and friction, due to the physical contact of the brushes. In a brushless motor, this friction is eliminated, meaning more battery energy is directed to the application itself – and ensuring a significantly more efficient tool.



With less energy being lost and therefore a more efficiently running motor, brushless tools deliver 50% extra runtime. As a result, you can achieve much more during the day, using exactly the same battery pack as before.
Reducing the heat and friction in the motor also extends the life of every tool.

20% more power*

With fewer friction points in the motor, and directing the energy straight from the electromagnets to the tip of the drill, more force will naturally be created. For the busy professional, this means the ability to drill even faster. Giving you up to 20% more power, a brushless drill will get the job done, quicker and better.


15% shorter**

Rearranging the components within the motor has the additional benefit of making it more compact in size. Significantly shorter than our existing brushed drills, these new brushless tools are more comfortable to use when working in tight spaces, and give you considerably more control.

Twin sleeve clutch

The STANLEY FATMAX Brushless drills feature two separate sleeves, allowing you to select the torque level when drilling, and retain the setting when switching to hammer mode. Thanks to this highly useful feature, you never need to remember the perfect set-up for the materials you're working with: your STANLEY Brushless tool will automatically return to the previous setting, saving you time and effort on every job.
