There should be a warning to not use this drill for more than ten or so minutes if grinding or brushing when used locked at maximum speed. After ten or fifteen minutes of continuous use, my drill started sputtering. Looking inside, I discovered that the brushes are mounted in the same red plastic as the housing. One of the brush holders had softened the plastic, causing it to misalign against the commutator. Otherwise, it's the best drill for the money. Just allow it to cool down during prolonged use.

This is my first ever Skil purchase. I've always heard good things about the Skil brand and now I know why. Combined with the appropriate bits, this drill has tackled wood, plastic, and metal all without bogging down or overheating. The build quality is much better than other drills i've handled and the price was very competitive giving it excellent value.

This drill is powerful. You will have to be careful to start slow because there is no variable speed. Remember to hold the drill straight when drilling because it can easily break bits. Overall great drill for the price and even though it is reconditioned it feels like new. I recommend this drill.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Donnie Powerful drill. I am pleased
The drill packs great power in package that is not too heavy for overhead work. Features are standard for variable speed reversible. Logical switches.
