So I've had mine for a while now and love it. I have had 2 weird problems with it though... Sometimes the chuck slips and battery life fluctuates. Battery has been tested and found to work fine...
This drill is not made for medium. Only lite use. There is a small eletronic part under the nad grip that can't handle extended use. This has happened to two of these drills. The first one lasted about 3 years. The second last less than 2 two. I ma not a contractor, just a guy doing work around the house. Like putting up a deck and not a very big one and put in a fence which is less than 100 feet long and ohter jobs around the house. If you must buy this drill get the extended warrenty and save your receipt. You will need it. Putting on your sears card does you no good. Got to have the receipt. If I had to do it over i would buy a De walt. If i could find out the part number of the electronic part I would replace it but that is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.
Great drill surprised me with the torque to drill a 3/4" hole to 7/8" about 2" deep
I returned the item.Sears quality seems to be slipping.
the drill is great but I recommend you pay the extra and get the lithium battery. the stock battery doesn't last long
did everything i asked of it except remove the lugnuts from my car when i purchased a 1/2 drive bit to use with the drill, but overall, im very happy with the drill.
Easy to use and very powerful.
The handle is useful because of the torque this can put out. (Of course one can always use the clutch to limit the torque if need be). On the heavy side (as it needs to be in order to put out this much power) so you probably don't want to use this for lots of extended overhead work.
