Works great, even for this amateur

I had one of these my sons had bought me last Christmas. When my younger son moved, he borrowed it. Yep, never saw it again, so I bought another just like it. Not a handy woman, but this is easy to use and works great!

great for literally a minute

I charged the battery and drilled one 1/8" hole in a 2x4 and the drill just stopped. The led light was blinking but the drill would do nothing. I shook it and it started working again...until I tilted it to drill another hole. I managed to get 10 holes drilled and screwed in 10 screws. I put the battery back on the charger to top it off and the light on the charger was solid green meaning that the battery was fully charged. I can't exchange it because I got the last one the store had. Too bad. I was really excited to find this drill for $50.

Tough and strong drill-driver

I really like this little drill/driver. I use it almost every week for anything from tightening screws to heavy duty drilling 1" holes. Compared to my old Black and Decker, this is like night and day. The batteries last really long and it is much stronger than my 19 V driver (from a cheaper manufacturer). The light that comes on during operation is a nice touch which I now can't live without. I have 3 batteries at this point, but honestly only need one, because the charger is fast and the battery last long. The driver feels good in the hand and is nicely balanced and small.
When pushing hard on the unit (for example to tighten a difficult screw), it is easy to push the gear selector from low to high during operation by accident, which I would guess could harm the gears.
The quick-chuck is not working as well anymore after 2 years of usage. Sometimes have to turn almost a full turn until is holds against me and allows me to tighten the chuck.

Craftsman 17586 Nextec

I actually bought this for my father. Since he has had it he used it just about everyday. When I purchased this I thought it was bigger on the website, but it does just as well as a bigger one. It also is a perfect size. He liked it very much..

One of my better buys.

Light weight, but does the work of the bigger drills that I've owned. Have used it for many projects and it still keeps going. The batteries last for hours, but I use a spare battery so when it does fade, I just plug in a new one. Had no problems with the chuck or with the power to drill with large bits. Perhaps not as good with the larger circular hole bits, but handles a larger spade bit without flagging. Like most Craftsman products it just keeps on doing the work you expect from it.

nice drill

I bought the drill driver, the right angle impack driver and the impack drill driver, I hang a lot of kitchen cabnets and these little drills are light and can get into tight spots, and will pound a large screw right in with very little effort

Love my drill

This is the first battery power tool I have purchased. I also have a Craftsman weed eater. I love both of them.

craftsman nextec drill

this drill is an excellent drill. we already owned one of these for my husband and we bought another so I could have my own. It is lightweight but very tough and strong. My husband has several drills and uses this drill for almost everything!

Great little drill

Was looking for a drill that was smaller than my 20v, after checking out the yellow and blue brands, I couldn't find a reason not to get this nextec drill. I live the versatility with the batteries working on so many tools

Hubby was excited

My husband wanted a small driver mainly for screws as he works on airplanes and has to remove and replace hundreds of screws in a day. When he opened this on Christmas, he said it was perfect! Hasn't used it much yet, but seems like a sturdy little thing! I got a good deal on it, too!

Great little drill!

I just wanted a small handy drill for light jobs in the house. This drill fit the bill perfectly. Plus it shares the battery with other NexTec tools I have.
