Customer Questions & Answers

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.

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

Asked by: kikoman
unfortunately without the receipt numbers there is not way to register for the warranty, but you should be able to take them into Homedepot and find out what the cost of repair would be. If you HD has a repair department.

8-Amp 1/2 in. Heavy-Duty Variable Speed Reversible Drill is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 100.

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.

I needed something stronger than my battery powered drill - this did the job. It easily tore through 2x4s and 4x4s with a paddle bit without jamming up.
