Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent drill. Stout, durable, lightweight, and easy to use. I would highly recommend this drill for anyone who is looking for a drill that is strong, durable, comes with a great warranty, and is reasonably priced. November 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by very pleased I purchased this unit about a year ago now. It has been used mostly for drilling though 2X wood members with a 7/8" auger bit. The speed to torque ratio is perfect for this task. It goes though single studs effortlessly at a good, easily controlled speed and yet still has the torque to bore through triple studs with little effort. January 19, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Drill! Great Drill for drilling concrete brick etc. Lots of power to get the job done quick, built with quality parts. Goes through concrete much faster than other drills and you won't burn it out. March 23, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase. Great drill. Perfect tool for a person working on many types of projects. I like having an electric drill that can work all day on heavy duty projects. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect drill for women! I love this drill. The extra handhold works great for women that don't have a lot of hand strength like me. August 12, 2014
