"I also did not pay full price for this drill. I have now owned it for around a year and can say it has changed everything. i can not think of a single negative to this drill at all. it is very compact and well balanced so it never feels heavy and can comfortably be used for long period or with a streched arm. i have only recently purchased an sds drill so can truely say that the only thing i have found that this strugles with is some lintels when hanging blinds and curtain poles, in plaster, brick and timber it powers through things that my old nicd drill would have cried at. even 10mm holes in brick for tv brackets etc, tap holes in solid worktops are easy, i even started off a 46mm hole with a core cutter in a tight space where the sds would not fit between joists through a brick cavity wall (although i would not recommend this). the battery charges in around 30 mins and lasts forever, for generall day to day work fitting kitchens etc i only change the battery about once a week, for heavier work like framing one battery will pretty much last a full day, my old nicd cordless i had to charge 3 times a day with lighter work and at times had to wait for the 2nd battery to charge as the other battery could drain quicker than they charge! not with this one anymore. the belt clip comes in handy when up a ladder etc, the 13mm chuck is great and the lboxxs are excellent although i dont keep this in it but is great for laser level and other bits. I could not reccomend this enough."
"Decent drill especially with the 2 x 3.0 batteries. Fortunately i did not pay the full asking price for this (will not go into details) so review rating reflects this. It will drill into brick but can be slow and somtimes struggles on hard brick. I have a bosch sds which i also am extremely happy with which i use and dont even really attempt it with this cordless (use the right tool for the job??). i only use this for soft drilling and mainly screwing. Workmates are always borrowing this because of the size and also the chuck holds bits theirs doesn't. Overall very happy with."
