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?

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

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.

8-Amp Corded 1/2 in. Heavy-Duty Variable Speed Reversible Drill is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 188.

My husband and I just used our new drill to mix 12 buckets of driveway filler sealer (latex-ite Optimum.) We've sealed our driveways in the past where we mixed the sealer by hand, and it was brutal.This time we bought a mixing paddle accessory, attached it to the drill, and mixed the sealer quickly and effortlessly. The drill was easy to use, had more than enough power to quickly and thoroughly mix the sealer which had inches of sand/fibre settled at the bottom. We wish we had used this drill with the "eggbeater" attachment when we sealed our driveways in the past. It would have saved us a lot of time, energy, and sore muscles! The tool felt great in our hands -- solid, good weight distribution, low vibration, quiet, and the 360 degree auxiliary handle really made for easy and comfortable handling. Work smarter; not harder - get this drill! It exceeds all expectations.

Last week I wrecked my 3/8 Ridgid keyless chuck drill when a bit got stuck and I took a pair of channel locks to it( drill served me many years ; don't use pliers on a key-less chuck) .My Milwaukee 1/2 drill needed brushes and a new power cord .I figured I would just toss the two drills and buy the Ridgid 1/2 ". SURE GLAD I STUCK WITH RIDGID! What a great drill . I started right off with a 1 1/2" hole saw through 1/8" steel plate. No problem! Drilled many holes in steel plate all week. The gear ratio is perfect. The chuck is smooth and tight . The weight is comfortable and the adjustable handle stayed locked into place. Strong drill and cant beat the life-time service and parts! .

Chuck screw broke and the chuck unscrewed down in the wall. Had to get a new one. Took it back for replacement and got the last one on the shelf. It was a piece of crap too! The whole chuck & shaft abruptly popped out an inch and jammed when I reversed to remove the drill from the whole I'd just drilled. Returned IT to Home Depot, and bought a trustworthy brand. MILWAUKEE !

Our Harbor Freight similar one failed. LOTS of torque. I expect that I'll have this one for a long time as use is occasional, but great to know that is comes with a lifetime service warranty.
