Summary: Another odd man out with my opinion. I purchase this product with high hopes. The drill has worked fine but the batteries went bad after about 16 months. Neither battery will accept a charge and now I am stuck trying to rationalize buying another battery.
Summary: Started out with a ho-hum review of a Makita...and ending here by adding the applaud for this Panasonic.
We had a plethora of brands and models available from a group of volunteer crew (fathers) over a month-long set-building project for our kids' musical.
Summary: I purchased this to replace a 10 year old Porter Cable, which was a great drill. The batteries on the PC are starting to go, and replacing them will cost almost as much as a new one. After doing lots of research, I settled on this Panasonic.
Summary: I bought this drill after extensive research online, and reading many reviews of it and the competition. This drill is superb. It is not as heavy as some have said, it is extremely powerful, and the charge holds and holds!
