One Tough Little 12v Drill

Mar 14, 2005
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Balance, light weight, sensitivity, price, F-R switch, power (for a 12v)

Cons:Chuck can be difficult to tighten, lacks speed for heavy duty drilling

After 5 years of hard use (the casing is so beat-up you can't read the letters anymore), both batteries finally gave out. I bought this drill back when money was tight, and I have to say it has performed way above expectations for a relatively cheap 12v. Did a lot of drilling into masonry last year, and even though this drill lacks the speed for such work, we used (and abused) it anyway, as a back-up. Where this drill really shines though is for fine work and especially for screwing drywall--the 24-level adjustable torque and nice clutch give you just the right touch. My brother's pricier Milwaukee tended to drive the screws too far every time. Goes all day on one battery while the other one charges. Also the forward-reverse switch is so handily placed, I'm spoiled forever. I may just buy replacement batteries if I can find them.....
