Summary: I wanted this drill because Consumer Reports magazine gave it a very good rating. I've had a few drills over the past 15 years and was disappointed with the performance or lack of performance with each one. The price I paid was very good and just like I hoped, this drill works like a dream! It's not too heavy, it charges very quickly and it easily handles my home repair jobs. Of all the items I've purchased on ebay, by far, this one makes me the happiest!
Summary: I bought this product because I worked side by side with someone and mine. Absoltuely no contest. It's like the eveready bunny, it just keeps running and running. Great product and very light.
Summary: I am a professional handyman, and have been in the business for 16 years. I just purchased and received My 4th panasonic 15.6v drill. The 1st one I bought in 99, because it had a 1/2" chuck. I used it alongside some makita drills, but it quickly made its way to being my #1 choice. I use this drill daily, and it has never failed.
Summary: I do home remodeling. This is the second one I purchased. The first was great--until I had it stolen. My second now is about 10 months old. I have used it on virtually ever job I'm at. I have used it with a large mud paddle to mix thinset and joint compounds (probably not recommended) and the motor gets very warm under this type of load. It has kept on running through all of my demands.
