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.
Asked by: Iwantmultipurposetools
This will mix mud just fine

I've been looking for a corded power tool that will just drill and drive the screws. I'm so tired...

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
I would recommend a cordless drill as they have all the power you'll need and no cord to get in your way.

8-Amp 1/2 in. Heavy-Duty Variable Speed Reversible Drill is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 143.

I needed to go though some 2 x 4's with a 4" inch whole saw that a battery pack drills just can't handle.This drill had no problem do just that. This drill is very powerful even with a good grip on the handle it still wanted to kick when the whole saw got stuck. I would recommend this drill to anyone needing to get the toughest jobs done. Also i like that it came with a tool bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from R7111 vs Milwaukee Magnum drill this still with high torque and lesser RPM than Milwaukee's Magnum pistol grip is the ideal power tool for me and my uses. they include plenty of steel drilling through thick metals in the elevator shaft. I have yet to lose control of this drill and snap my wrist with this drill as so often happens with the Magnum. I am a happy r7111 purchased and am pleased to have bought and lifetime registered my power tool and I'd do it all again.
