      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.

      disappointed.
      I bought this drill to upgrade my aging Craftsman 19.2 volt Nicad drill. After charging batteries all night, they both died after putting approximately 20 deck screws into my daughters swingset. A drill that comes so highly rated should be able to put in well more than 20 screws. My dad bought the exact same drill too. First use of our new drills was this swingset. We will both be returning these drills tomorrow for a different brand. Highly disapointed.

      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.

      Returned it

      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.

      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.

      I usually use my Craftsman C3 3/8 inch drill but when I need more grunt the 1/2 inch gets the job done every time.

      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.

      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.

      This drill has everything I was looking for. A level, built in bit storage (for two!) and even a light. It came with two batteries which is very important. I hate to wait in middle of a project for battery to charge. It's very powerful and compact - very handy in tight spaces.

      Great drill.

      Works great. Drill has good power. The batteries work well and charge relatively fast. They work at full power right up to the very end, so make sure to have the second battery charged and ready. The holders for the screwdriver bits are very handy. The only downside is the included phillips head screwdriver bit seems a little cheap. Mine got stripped out pretty quickly. Other than that - I have no complaints. The light is helpful as well.
