Questions & Answers

What is the country of origin of this drill?

Asked by: waheb68
don't trust country of origin for anything. There is no proof/certificate of origin on anything. Parts... labor.. they come from everywhere.

I am looking to mix 5 gallon buckets of drywall mud, will this suffice? Or do I need the mud specific tool that I won't have any other use for?

I am not a contractor, I first need to do about 700 square feet of skim coating on the ceiling, then several hundred square feet of skim coating on the walls over the next year. I am not looking to mix mud 24/7, just a few projects.

how can I purchase a replacement chuck key?

Asked by: Briany
Chuck keys are universal, but a model number of the drill will get you the OEM part.

I've been looking for a corded power tool that will just drill and drive the screws. I'm so tired of having to throw out the cordless power tools because I use it seldom (once a year or so) and batteries don't charge any more by the time I needed it. . I have been looking on line and there so many listed, I don't know how to tell them apart. I recently bought a black and decker but that turned out defective so I didn't even get a chance to try out the unit. Is this drill what I am looking for?
Asked by: NeedAGoodDrillDriver
Hi NeedsAGoodDrillDriver, If you are looking to just use it for screws and a little drilling then i would recommend this one instead model # R70011. It is more suited for what you need. Thanks for your interest. Greg

8-Amp 1/2 in. Heavy-Duty Variable Speed Reversible Drill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 109.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I bought this heavy duty drill so I could add 1/2 inch carriage bolts to the dock I am building. ... I bought this heavy duty drill so I could add 1/2 inch carriage bolts to the dock I am building. This drill does not have the power to drill 1/2 inch holes for the bolts even after drilling a 3/8 pilot. This is more of a medium duty drill. I would recommend as a medium duty drill. It is easy to use and the drill has no problems other than the expected Heavy Duty power

Purchased this because my cordless drill gave up the ghost so I took it in for warranty repair. That usually takes a couple of months so I figure this would be a low cost alternative while I wait. It worked great and I finished 2 3/4 inch holes in 3/8 mild steel quickly and a few other smaller projects. This has a lot more power than the cordless type so you have to be especially careful when drilling but it works great.

Using it one-handed would be difficult at best. More importantly it was unsuitable for my purpose (Craftsman drill press where the customer supplies the drill) because the diameter of the collar was too large to fit the frame. It may be a great drill, but it doesn't work for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not horrible This drill has some good power and runs pretty smooth. My only complaint is the chuck has a wobble to it. Not just the jaws, but the entire chuck has a slight wobble that you can see while it is spinning.
