Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed This drill is just what I needed. I am grinding paint off an old metal chair with a wire brush attachment. I needed a drill that could run for long time. My battery drill would not do. This drill does not get hot. It has good speed and power. It has a reverse, which is necessary for grinding in tight spots. It will accept 1/2" bits, which is important to me. The only thing I wish it had is a keyless chuck. Having to use a key to change bits is kind of a pain, but a minor issue as long as you don't lose it.. September 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome drill for $50! This drill is powerful and does everything for me. It mixes thinset, quickwall, and other cement based products with a paddle. It drives screws and drills holes. It even has the power to crush grains in a grain mill (which I think takes the most torque, actually). Yes, it is heavy and needs a chuck to change bits, but the motor is sound and it runs and runs. The front handle is worthless and the chuck holder should not be trusted, but for $50 this drill has already done a lifetime of work in 14 months. July 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great drill for the money I was looking for a drill that was good and would fall into my price range. This drill was well worth the money. I brought it to work on a porch deck. I had more than enough power to drive the lag bolts into the ledger board and 4x4 post that I put in. The only problem I have with is the chuck, I wish it was keyless. November 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Happy Bought drill to mix thinset. We did 10 bags and also 3 bags of grout. The drill worked great. December 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Drill For Heavy Duty Work I have a nice Ryobi cordless drill that's great for light and medium duty tasks, but I was planning a 400+ square foot tile flooring project, and wanted to be able to use a drill to mix the mortar that I would be using. (About 14 - 50lb bags total I think.) After reviewing the selection at my local Home Depot Store (recently beautifully remodeled), I chose this drill for the half-inch chuck, high torque / amp rating, variable speed capability, extra handle for two-handed operation, and what I felt was a very reasonable price. I used the drill in conjunction with a pro-grade mixing paddle (SKU 289-787) with fantastic results. This drill had more than ample power to complete the job without feeling like I was going burn out the motor (or my body). Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive, but very powerful drill for the occasional big project. A great labor saver - well worth the money. October 30, 2008
