Summary: My step dad actually bought this drill at Lowe's they had it for $179 they price matched it dropped $10 well worth the money we needed it to mix stucco in a 5 gallon bucket has plenty of power to mix anything highly recommend it
Summary: This drill was bought to replace a drill stolen by dirtbags. I love this drill. It mixes stiff drywall mud easily. I haven't used it for anything else but I can tell from experience that it has plenty of power for most tasks. It's a very good deal for the price.
Excerpt: I installed over 250 SF of stone siding. Without this drill I would have had a miserable time mixing nearly a ton of mortar in 3 gallon batches. Loads of power, smooth as silk. Was amazing to see the heavy mortar turned to liquid in just over a minute of mixing.
Summary: We are making slip for our straw bale house, needed something that would mix well and not cost a fortune. It may not last for years but the price wae great and it is very solid. I like the variable speeds, although that may make it less durable.
