Hank, yes, it can be done but battery powerd drills are heavy. I tried it a couple times but for me it wasn't worth the effort. Weight is my enemy. I can see your point though. If someone that cannot crank the cocking device with the supplied handle but he can haul the drill to and from his stand and use it effectively, it makes lots of sense. It will work, using a 1/4" socket. I would recommend using a drill with an offset handle to prevent it from twisting in the hand. I tried a Black and Decker battery powered screw driver (straight body) and I could not keep it from twisting in my hand.
I think it would be cool for Ten Point to design a battery powered unit option to work with the ACUdraw that is portable.
