I purchased 5 of the Craftsman 17586 for my business. I purchased these 4 years ago These drills are used every day most of the day for 5 days a week. 3 of them are going strong and I have had replace two of them after 3 years. These little drills are worth every penny. They are built to last.
Big fan of craftsman and nextec for years, but folks, THIS 12V lithion ion is a complete DUD. Drill bits continually fall out of the chuck, even while operating. The torque is another mystery as there is none. Either I got a bad unit or this is a nextec loser. I have NO idea where all the so called good reviews come from , but i'm an avid DIY experienced craftsman with many years of quality work behind me. I had been using a NiCad B&D 3.6 volt drill which had finally given out after many years service and THOUGHT this would be a gr8 replacement. SAVE your bucks and buy anything else, even WMT hypertough brand is far far better than this nice looking, gr8 feeling, but lousy, drill for the money. Fortunately it has the battery charger and extra battery that I can use for a Nextec multitool which does exhibit some degree of quality.
I've owned one for several years and its compact size and decent torque make it a very versatile drill for most home projects. Its light weight makes it very portable even with a backup battery and charger. It's my favorite for most projects.
