Tough and strong drill-driver

Pros: 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. Cons: 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.

Nice drill while it lasted

It's a handy tool when it's functioning. Feels good in the hand, lightweight, & has decent power. I've had it about a year. It never sees hard use, just lightweight around the house use. The problem is that it started to smoke the other day, a very light scent. The following day smoke started pouring out of it, then it stopped functioning. The day after that it was functioning again because it had cooled off. The troublesome thing is that I was driving small machine screws at the first clutch setting, & only for a couple of minutes total, so there wasn't any kind of strain going on. Over the 3 days it was in operation for between 3 & 4 minutes total. I doubt it's going to last much longer. Doing some research on the 'net, it seems that the electric motor burning out is a common issue. Now I'm torn between buying another one, or just spending twice as much to get another brand that will last.

My perfect Drill


This is my go to drill. I'm always using it light weight but plenty of power for most jobs. If I could own just one drill this would be the one!!

I have owned one of these drills for a long time and love it.
It is light weight but still powerful. I am going to buy a second one for
taking with me in my tool kit.

Lots of power in a small package


For about five years I've been lugging around a real basic NiCad 18 or 20 volt cordless drill to do everything around the house. I mostly just got sick of it's heft and unwieldiness in trying to install some cabinets. I bought this little guy hoping to make my life easier and boy has it. After getting it I immediately put it to work installing some fire alarm covers, drilling some pilots and screwing some screws, it was perfect for the task. It's so light you can just pop it in your back pocket if you need to free up a hand. I'm sure there are tasks that it isn't up to, but for basically anything around the house, this is a great little drill/driver, well worth the cost.

Craftsman 12v Drill Review


I've owned this drill for a couple months now, and have already found it to be my most often used power tool. The charge lasts a surprisingly long time. This drills with accuracy and I love the driver setting as well. Another nice feature is that you can set the drill to different torque settings depending on your situation. Great for around the house jobs, have used it for drilling into wood, drywall as well as driving screws. Seems very dependable, well-made.

As a professional, I normally wouldn't buy this small a drill but my dad got me one for Christmas last year. I've been using it around my house and it's really impressed me. Lightweight, yet strong enough for any job around the home. I accidentally left it outside and it got 4 inches of snow and ice on it. It was actually frozen inside a shell of ice. I chipped off what I could and let it thaw out. The next day I pulled the trigger and it started right up. I haven't even had to charge it since. I would definitely recommend this drill/driver.

Great item for the price


I think for the price, you can't beat these drills. The entire nextec line is of decent quality for the price. Obviously not professional quality, but great as a supplement to a quality larger drill or someone who is an occasional user. Battery retention could be better constructed.

Perfect compliment to the Nextec Impact driver


I had to look around a bit to find the Nextec 12 V drill. I have the impact driver and it is my "go to" screwdriver. I like the way it feels, the power and its light weight. Now with both the drill and the impact driver, projects go faster. The batteries charge fast and last a very long time.

good deal


I just wanted a second charger and maybe another battery, but this package was a better deal by far than just buying the charger by its self.

This is a great drill!


I love this drill. It has great driving capacity. My friends laughed when I pulled this drill out to drive 3 1/2" screws into two 8 x 2 beams. After I sunk several screws keeping up with 20 volt drills they shook their heads in amazement. It has a good battery life. excellent torque, and best of all it is light.

Resourceful and Powerful


I bought the Craftsman 17586 NEXTEC 12.0V Lithium-Ion Drill/Driver to replace a 12 year old Craftsman drill that kept losing its charge. The Lithium battery is amazing. It only needs to charge once every 6 months if sitting dormant, has no battery memory, and can gain over 50% charge capacity extremely quick if you are don't have time to wait for a full charge. The drill is small and heavier than it appears, and more powerful than other drills of that size. Overall, it's a fantastic addition to my tool collection. It unfortunately doesn't have holds for your drill bits.

Powerful drill for everyday use.


I'm impressed with this drill it has lots of power and the LED light is great. I keep picking this drill up for jobs in the shop and the house. I was surprised it did not come with any type case or even a bit, but for the price it's a great deal!

Awesome little lightweight drill


I bought this drill 2 weeks ago on sale for $45 and I'm very glad I did. Run time is long. I only use it to unscrew 1/2" long screws and bolts and I probably remove 500 bolts before the battery is empty. Charge time is only 30 minutes. The light is kind of useless so if you're interested in this drill for the light I'd look elsewhere. Otherwise I'm very happy with it so far.

Nicely designed


As a vintage auto upholster and auto trimmer, the necessity of a power drill that can handle different types of metal thicknesses is a vital tool.
This drill delivers. It has a nicely designed battery so that there is not a HUGE battery pack in the way. This tool is sleek, powerful and lightweight!!
