It is very sturdy and packs a punch

Let me tell you. I have had several cordless drills in my lifetime. This is the MAC DADDY of them all. It is very sturdy and packs a punch. The first thing I did was put a full charge on the battery before I got started. Once fully charged, put this thing to work. You will easily get a full days work on a single charge. There is no job that this cannot handle. It’s got great torque and the chuck is sensational. Previous drill I have owned, I always felt I could not get the chuck tight enough to hold well, especially with drill bits. …not with this one. Simply place the screw/drill bit in place and turn it until you hear it click into place, Although this comes with a hefty price tag, you will not be disappointed.

This is the only drill that I need for anything from household projects to metal and woodworking projects. I love it! If you’re looking for a multi-use drill that won’t hesitate through any material, buy it! The battery charge longevity is fantastic as well, I can work on a project for hours and still have 3/4 battery charged.

Excellent torque, long battery life and love the flexibility of the many speed options it has. Not intended as a complaint, but I find the led light is useless. Based on its location above the trigger, it actually cast a shadow on the head of the screw. It doesn’t affect performance but it doesn’t help either. As such I also don’t like that it stays on 20 seconds after you release the trigger. Every time I pick up the drill, I hit the trigger just enough that it turns on the light. That’s just a waste of battery for me. Not to be mistaken, I absolutely love the drill and the power it has!

Really like the feel of it and the power is next to none. The staying power of the batteries is unbelievable.

Excellent drill

I LOVE this drill. The power is GREAT. I haven’t found anything it won’t drive. I put some 3.5 inch screws in a wood beam with a stainless steel backing plate that was an eighth inch thick, and it bent the plate when the screws bottomed, and it was still driving. The chuck is another great invention. No need to have to use 2 hands to try to tighten a drill bit. Just tightening with one hand works. The chuck won’t turn when tightening it on a bit. AMAZING!!. The lithium batteries are just what I needed. I had NICAD batteries on the old drill, and I don’t use it often, and they were always depleted when I went to use the drill. These hold a charge for 18 months. I have other tools with the lithium batteries, and they are always ready when I need them.

Very powerful drill! I’m more of a handyman / hobbyist but I value quality tools. I bought this to replace a 15 year old 14.4V Dewalt. I can tell this drill will last at least as long and work twice as well. I highly recommend it!

Love them holes

I cannot say enough about Li-on batteries! I have an old DeWalt drill with NiCad, and they only hold a charge for a day – max! The Li-on batteries hold a charge for many days and weeks! The light on the drill is awesome. The three speeds is perfect. The brake and power is well balanced – this whole drill is very well engineered! This is my newest favorite toy/tool.

Had this drill now for 5 months. Came with 2 Li-ion batteries which are long lasting and have built in charge indicators. Plenty of power. Charger works well. Chuck works smoothly and locks bits in firmly. Only small problem is that the LED light is blocked by the chuck assembly for most applications. Case is nicely designed and holds everything well including a set of drill bit which I added. I think this has to be one of the best drills you can buy.
