I don't spend a lot of money on my tools until I know how I like them and how they hold up. This one is great and I use it often. After buying this I don't feel I need to spend more because this more than handles the jobs I do. I do work on 2x4's so it isn't just for fixing hinges.
Have had this drill about 2 years. It has performed flawlessly and continues to have a strong battery. I think it is the best drill for the money on the market.
I was given this as a Father's day gift as part of a drill, saw, light set. My first use was building a deck and using large paddle bits. this never let me down. Over the years I've added batteries to my kit and had to purchase a new charger but this drill has to be at least 8 years old and still going strong. I would recommend this to anyone but would have to recommend the Li Ion batteries, especially if you intend to use the circular saw.
I got this drill as a gift and I am very pleased with the power and the ability to match the power vs the material...metal, wood and plastic, it doesn't matter. This drill is the real thing!

this was a gift for my husband, he loved it, said it will be great for all his home repair needs, as his other drills were never strong enough to handle tough drill jobs. he says the power on this it great and the cordless feature is a pkus
When I walked into the store I was anticipating on spending around $100 for a drill. At the entrance to the tool section there was a display of drills on clearance. On this particular day Sears was offering an additional 40% off. I paid around $30 for this drill and battery pack. It recharges in 30 minutes. I have used it in a entertainment center install I am doing at the house and I haven't had to recharge it yet. It is fantastic and at the bargain price I got it for...a real steal!

Started a New job and required a drill. I haven't used tools in past and this was extremely helpful. This drill is lighter than a full size one. With the lighter battery it makes it a little easier to use for longer periods of time. Definitely a professional tool. If you treat it right then this drill will last you forever.
This drill is perfect for the lady (and the guys also) who wants to do those jobs around the house. It is not too heavy, very easy to use, and just what I have been looking for. The price was terrific.
Battery drains just sitting. 7 days and the battery is dead. Talked to Sears and they said it's a known issue, but you can get a better battery and charger for $100. Too bad you didn't make a better product to begin with. Hello Mr Makita.
