Little Disappointed
I bought this drill to replace the same one that I purchased a couple years ago. The light burnt out after a years use but the drill is still running. I am disappointed with the batteries on this one because they don't have the charge indicator built in that my old one came with. My old batteries still work but don't hold a charge as long as they used to. No wonder since I use them all most every day. Great drill, great batteries, just wished they came with a charge indicator on them. I hate getting to the top of a ladder just to find out that they have only enough charge to drill one more screw, otherwise I could have checked the charge before going up the ladder like I used to.

I bought this adjustable torque drill/driver for its adjustable torque feature - and was disappointed. The lowest setting still buried screw heads into pine boards, and the torque was similar on a bunch of settings followed by a big change. the rest of the tool seemed solid, but the torque was unacceptable.

Poor quality chuck

The drill is compact and well built. The small footprint battery helps for getting into poor access areas. The torque leaves a lot to be desired. Compared to my Dewalt 20v max compact it is anemic. The main drawback is the chuck. It ruins every bit that it touches. Theses are a $450.00 set of Precision twist drill HSS drills. They slip and it chews up the shank. Does this when drilling wood and metal. Also does the exact same with PTD Cobalt drills. This is not acceptable. My Dewalt never slips period. I have an older craftsman C3 full size that does not chew up drill bits.

Drill with bad battery

I purchased the drill for my father in close out section. It came with charger & battery. Upon getting home & charging The battery overnight I realized the battery itself was bad... I went back & purchase two batteries in packaging in clearence section & those too were charged overnight. Both of those batteries were bad as well... I took and returned everything back to the store for a full refund. Only disappointed in the waste of time this whole process was.... If items are in clearence and marked they should be tested and not resold if they aren't in working order.

Awesome Drill!

I gave this as a gift for my dad's birthday. He loves it! Great upgrade from the ni-cad battery drill. Bonus: The new Lithium batteries (two of them) fit Dad's old drill.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

cordless drill

I purchased this drill from my 24 year old grandson as a gift. I trust the Craftsman name and feel that it will serve him well for many years to come. This drill comes with 2 batteries which I feel is a great value for the price and is invaluable when you are in the middle of a big project and need a fresh battery. This drill is lightweight and powerful, just what he needs!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

New drill

Compact, yet powerful. I am replacing a craftsman drill I have used for more than 20 years and am glad I finally bought a new drill. I replaced the batteries in my old drill, but seems it just didn't have the power or response that I needed in completing the projects I work on. The new drill has ample power and is much smaller to boot.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Powerful and long lasting

Finally, a powerful long lasting driver in the Craftsman lineup. It has a guttural whir instead of that typical high pitch whine while it delivers loads of power. The only issue I've had is it sometimes gets confused at low RPM with no load and stops, but that hasn't happened in the field.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent drilling system

The Craftsman C3 system is the best I have ever used. I just upgraded to the Lithium battery and it increases power and tool time.

Great package deal

I was looking to get more li-ion batteries to replace older Ni-cads that have trouble retaining charge. This package was about the same price as two li-ion batteries and a new charger, plus there's a great drill too.

Great performance

Let me tell you that at first I was not convinced of buying the tool. it has good price compared to other brands, so I do it. I have used this tool for more than six months. The battery is still going strong . I can work a lot on a single charge . Very good power and very comfortable . User friendly . Does the job and meet expectations . I do not regret this purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Feels good in the hand, packs a punch.

Really nice hand feel, good balance. Has all the little features you expect of a high quality drill. This kit was my way of getting into the Craftsman Lithium Ion batteries. Comes with the Lithium Ion charger. Get this kit, then start getting the 19.2v add-on tools.

AMAZING

I have had several drills from craftsman before and they keep getting better. I just gave my old one to a friend and bot this one. It seems more powerful drives deck screws amazing, and the lithium batteries are amazing as well Im gonna get more of them. C3 PRODUCTS are amazing and work well. This package was an amazing deal for an amazing drill with lots of power and 2 lithium batteries along with a charger.

This Drill has been a pleasure to use since purchase. Seems to be well built and batteries hold charge for quite awhile. They also hold a charge while sitting in my truck in the Florida heat. When I've needed it they are still charged. Very strong item.
