A basic electric rotary drill will do the trick for most installations of drywall. This drill is primarily designed for making holes. They are available with cordless battery operations and corded mains connection. Which electric rotary drill you choose for the project will depend on a few different considerations.
No matter how large or small your project, it is advisable to use an electric drill that you can handle easily. A cordless model will weigh more than a corded drill. Choose one with variable speed, and adjustable clutch. This allows for use with variable thickness of drywall. Test speed and clutch adjustment to ensure you do not drive the screw too far into the drywall.
