    Pros: Powerful tool that is less expensive than the competition.
    Cons: Not durable. Spring connecting motor to shaft breaks easily.

    Summary: Plenty of speed and power, but the spring connecting the motor to the shaft breaks easily (first use). Maybe this is why this model is no longer widely available in stores. If it was, I'd take mine back. Spring is not available for purchase on Black & ... read more
