Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by StevenB Puts other drills to shame!
I was hesitant to spend $400 on this drill when there are "comparable" drills for less, but after using it for several days, I am glad I did. This thing puts other drills I've used to shame. I've been using it around the house for a few days now and have not yet had to charge it where as my older drill would have required 2 or 3 charges already.
It has tons of power and just feels good to use.
My only complaints are that there is no way to turn off the light, which I found can be distracting in some cases. Also the case is mediocre but I'll get over it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ekcdrummer The best drill Ever... period.
Biggest kudo points for this drill was that it survived a trip to the bottom of a pool and back!!! I was building a covered patio right up next to a pool and accidently dropped this baby in!!! I freaked!! I quickly grabbed the net and fished it out, took the battery and bit out, and let it dry out in the sun for a few hours. I kid you not, 3 hours later it was back in perfect form. It didn't even slow down in speed!!! And it lived to finish the project and is still going! I use this drill everyday, and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a drill. This is the mack daddy of them all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chet This product gets the job done!
This item really works well. No problems switching from one mode to another. Battery life is exceptionally Good. Have used it on a few home jobs and have not recharged it since the first one. Runs as strong as when I first charged the battery. Used the Hammer drill on concrete putting lights in the stone fence~no problem! Used the drill drive to drill thru a door frame and used the screw drive to put a door on my shed out back. Wish I bought this item a long time ago!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by digitalman1961 Best Ever!
I have used many different brands of cordless drills. This one is by far the best I have ever owned/used. The lithium ion battery lasts a long time! I purchased this drill and used it on a suspended ceiling job and this thing kept going and going and going! The drill is powerful and has adjustments to tailor it's use for any drilling/fastener job it is designed to do. The grip is very comfortable. I would highly recommend this to any pro or weekend do it yourself person.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barrie Exceptionaly good power and durability.
I have a no. of drills including Rigid which is very good but this 18volt is by far the best drill I have ever owned or used in many years of working with many different types of materials. Even the Consumers rating on this product is the best there is for the serious tradsman or home owner.
