Great drill with accessories,and a terrific bargain
4 August 2014
Summary: This drill and accessories work great, and represent a terrific bargain. In fact, I have an older Hitachi modfel, which I loved, but Imade the mistake of using it until the battery lost the charge.
Summary: Kicks butt for a 12 volt gun and i love the fact that it has a hook on it to hook it on a pocket, belt or ladder rung, the only draw back I have with the kit is the light is a little cheap feeling but other that that first class screw gun. you wont be disappointed!
Why spend $40 on just a new battery, when you can have two and a new driver for $20 more?

Summary: I went on Amazon searching for a new battery for my Hitachi 12v impact driver. After finding replacement batteries coming in at around forty bucks, I found this nice little combo for just a bit more. For the little bit more I paid, I got a second battery, drill and flashlight.
Summary: I have two of these drills, both purchased about the same time two years ago (June 2010). I purchased the second drill because the first one worked so well and the price was very good. My error was simple. I counted on an average 4 to 5 years of battery life. I was wrong.
Summary: People have complained about the chuck loosening but if you actually tighten it, it will stay tight. Plenty of torque, as good as a my old 12v dewalt after driving 2.5" deck screws into 2x4's all afternoon. If you look online you can find this kit in the $49 price range. At that price it is a steal.
Summary: I bought two of these drills about three years ago to support a computer service business. It's light, adjustable, and great for screws. They've held up beautifully, but the batteries have now begun to fail.
