Not sure you can find a better right angle drill for the money
Durability and comfort in hand are remakable, once you use it. The rotation direction is easily changed by thumb of trigger hand.

I purchased this drill because it seemed like a good value since it was supposed to include a Ni-MH battery. Amazons listing is misleading. It ships with a Ni-cd #632007-4. A little disappointed with Amazon but the drill is still a quality product. It is a drill thus it isn’t very conducive to driving screws but it can be done with a little care. I’ve used the drill already and it was up to the task. Not a bad price or product to get you out of a tight spot.
Fantastic drill and price. I have used one of these for years in the rental business. I love this particular drill because it is strong, gets the job done and even if it sits for a month, when you need it, it is charged and ready to go. I have not seen another cordless drill that holds a charge like this.
great buying experience.
I wasn’t sure that I wanted to buy a used tool,
Excellent product. These older models are hard to find, but worth it.
A great drill with one reservation
This is a great tool and works miracles where you might otherwise have to do the work by hand. I’ve used it many places and times, the most convenient being the instalation of kitchen cabinets where there are not removable shelves but stationary ones and you need to get inbetween the shelves to secure the cabinet to the wall. Many times a regular drill just wont fit. My biggest complaint with this machine is the ability (or lack of) to keep the pressure behind the drill to get the job done. Becuase of its design (which makes it the tool what it is) getting enough pressure behind the head to screw in or out tough screws, almost stripped screws, or screws into a stud, can be difficult. The handle and trigger are below the head, not behind it like a conventional driver. All and all this is a great and durable tool.
how did i get along with out it?
on the campus of the university of Nebr has been the focus of a total remodle of the campus book store me and my men spent weeks building and installing all the new fixtures and when it came time to add the finishing top pieces with the celing and a 4″ sewer pipe in direct line wiht where we had to predrill and fasten with screws evrey top cap hundreds of screws dozens of hours later we had finished only this little drill could do all of the work and not once did it fail we put it to the extrime test being dropped a time or two it was a true champ from the get go we were all pleased at the high performance of this super product once you have one you’ll ask yourself HOW DID I GET ALONG WITHOUT IT?
Excellent Drill! Highly recommended. But not for heavy work.
I have had this drill for 9 years and have used it EVERY DAY for 6 years to install cell-phones into cars/trucks. This drill has been to hell and back, and is still running strong! It has even been run over by a Chevy Blazer on concrete and only suffered cosmetic damage of the spec’s sticker!! It has also been dropped on the same concrete floor dozens of times, literally! I have used it primarily for driving screws and drilling holes in tight areas, but also prefer to use it over my heavier duty makita cordless for driving screws anywhere because it is well balanced and the electric brake provides optimum control. My one and only complaint about this drill is that I have had to replace the trigger 3 times in the six years I did installs. At 30 bucks a whack, this gets tiring. But in the drill’s defense, the trigger failures were a direct result of my over-working the drill. Here is a guideline to follow: If you are straining the drill enough to have to press the reset switch regularly, you are over-working it and will eventually burn out the switch. My suggestion is to use this drill for light to moderate screwing/drilling, and have a heavier cordless drill (preferably one that uses the same batteries) to do the bigger jobs. With that, I can pretty much guarantee you’ll be more than satisfied with this drill! (I would have given this drill 4.75 stars if it were possible. A 4 star rating doesn’t measure up, but I can’t give it a perfect score.
