Summary: I can't believe how much torque this little light weight drill has. It beats my old craftsman 19v hands down. I have not used it for a sustained period of time to determine how long the battery lasts but I suspect it will last a good long while.
Summary: Came fully charged so I didn't have to wait. I did 3 projects in my new home the first week and never needed to switch the battery, the one that was in it just kept working and working. I'm very happy with this drill. I am not happy with the case. It is apparently designed for several different drills so nothing really fits in the case. Sloppy fit means all the parts bang around inside. Disappointing considering how much I like the drill.
Summary: i bought one of this and i used to drive a 3 inch screw and i was amazed how good the drill worked, then my co-worker tried to put the drill on his belt and somehow the drill fell to the floor, the drill broke apart from the battery completly..
Summary: We've used this drill for kitchen cabinet work and it's been great. Battery life so far has been excellent. Wish that the kit came with some bits and screwdrivers. The light is nice but not really necessary for most applications.
Summary: Finally I have a great compact versatile cordless drill gun.Been through several Rigid & Craftsman drills that were good when new but the battery life dropped fast after a year and the cost to replace them was outrageous,Have used this drill gun for awhile now on the original charge of the first battery and have yet to need the second battery.Love the torque and balance of this compact drill,and to have a great warranty on such a wonderful product is even better
Summary: i bought the hitachi rill recently for use at home when my older drill needed new batteries. decided to buy a new drill with lithium cells this time. I found the hitachi drill to be well balanced/ had very good specs and was priced competively. used it for multiple projects and was completely satisfied with its performance. excellent quality.
