I bought this drill for my boyfriend a year ago and he loves it.? The store was suprised to see someone wanting a corded drill because most of the people want cordless.? He hasn't had any problems using it and he loves trying out new projects with this drill.? He loved craftsman but didn't know anything about the evolv product of craftsman but the price was right and now I can't get him to put it down
I got this real cheap so I will keep it BUT this only has one speed which makes it only good to drill holes and mix paint. Because of the one high speed you CAN NOT use this effectively to drive a screw. I assumed this had ?two? speeds because they say in the description.... ?sinking screws into a freshly built deck? ... Unfortunately with just ?one high speed? on this drill ... It?s almost impossible to sink a screw in a freshly built deck Look for a drill that has two speeds. The lower speed (on a 2 speed drill) gives you the torque you need to drive the screw into the wood. Otherwise with the one high speed you?ll end up striping the head of the screw before you?re able to drive the screw in all the way.
Christmas gift hardly user chuck wont let you unscrew to take out bit
Great drill for household repairs and improvements. This drill replaced an older drill I had by craftman which was almost 20 years old. I had drill bits and other attachments so I didn't need a drill that came with them.
It works great, we have had no problem, and since both battery operated ones had the batteries die, and the batteries are so expensive, we went back to corded and it works great!
