Yes. It's powerful enough. It will break your wrists if you're not careful. Honestly you should look for a drill press if you're making a lot of those. It will make life way easier and your hole saws will last much longer.

I bought it said it because it said it was a gear-driven Chuck drill. Drilling a double to buy 8 into a six-by-six it bogged I I figured it would have a little bit more power than it did. An I wished it was 2speeds . I did like the chuck key setup an the pug with the opening to hook onto the wire for power cords or rapping it around it self. I do miss power tools with that on the plug . It dose have power. My only complaint it's not a two speed

Well, first job in broke my wrist. Was concerned that the 8 amp. Would not have the same power as my 8.6, this concern has been eliminated in grand style. Handles well with all the (plus) power required for the job at hand.

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.

I use this to mix thinset no problem and motor never burns out. only issue is you have to mix thinset at low speed and this has a variable speed finger trigger and no dial to set speed. You just have to hold finger very lightly to get low speed because high speed is too fast for thinset (adds too much air).

it just works
This is one of those tools that I have used, abused, put away wet, and it just keeps working like day 1. This thing beats some of my Bosch and DeWalt drills. When I need a drill for a hard, dirty job, when it's raining, I grab this bad boy. 5 years after I purchased it, it still keeps going.

I am very pleased with this drill. I bought it to be able to mix 55# bags of cement and it spins the mixing wand with ease. It's very comfortable to hold and the stabilizing handle makes controlling it that much better. It seems very durable and the cord is rugged.

The drill is a great addition to my power tools. Powerful, dependable since it’s corded. It’s convenient with some battery operated drills but there not as powerful and dependable since you always need to charge batteries and have a backup battery. Easy to change bits to adapt to your projects. It’s bit heavy to hold since I’m a lady but it’s a great dependable power tool.
