You should be able to....as long as the drill spins at a good pace. Some Cordless drills are too slow to fire it up. Almost all corded ones should work though...and some of the better cordless will work as well.

Depends if your drill is fast enough . I used to use a 14V Dewalt drill to start my LST .
