Drill Starting

I'm going to buy a battery powered drill to start my modified briggs flathead and was wondering what size drill I need and how much torque the drill should deliver in order to turn the engine. I was thinking about getting the Makita 18v drill, would I need a 19.2v or even a 20v? Thanks.

20v get a wrist brace while your at it .
I see your point multiple use , just do not believe its a good idea .

Yes - size of machine , weight and one hand operation .
3 inch #10 screw on picnic table gave me a pain for a few days .
One with a screw on handle would be much better .

I can start my stocker with a 1/2 chuck dewalt electric drill. It sucks to say the least. Get a starter they have gear reduction for a reason
