Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Low Cost - Good Quality Bought as a replacement for another 3/8' corded drill that is on it's last legs. Used for sanding wooden bowls on the lathe. So far it has preformed as expected. September 29, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Probably over working it I'm involved in a huge restoration project of a 1967 Mustang GT Coupe. I have to remove 46 years of rust, dirt and road grime from under and inside this car. This drill was purchased to replace two other electric drills I have either broken or worn out using them to rotory steel brush the metal of this car. My only complaint with this drill is I wish it had a trigger lock button. May 7, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by power cord It looks like this is an updated version of the Skil 6230-01, with the exact same features and 4.5 amp motor.  So, I'll give my review of the 6230-01 and others can decide if the zebra has changed its stripes or not.   I bought the 6230-01 several years ago but use it very infrequently.  It looks new and I've kept it in the box in a heated room (not a garage).  The 4.5 amp motor is powerful and useful, but the trigger is pretty much full speed or nothing.  It takes a lot of effort to trigger to slow speeds and is almost impossible to adjust for finer work or using the drill as a screw driver.  Finally, about a year ago the drill stopped working, and I found that I had to bend the power cord a specific way in order for the drill to work at all.  For a rarely used and carefully stored drill this is unacceptable.  I don't know about their other tools, but I'll try to avoid them given my experience.
