Summary: I had this type of drill. but dropped it one too many times. This is to replace the drill I dropped. I like the li-Lon battery when it is discharged It is dead, but the battery has a long life. Excellent product.
Summary: ** UPDATED REVIEW** Increased from 1 to 5 stars. I bought this drill as my first lithium ion power tool. I had never before purchased a Skill tool either, but decided to give the brand a chance. Product performed flawlessly for a few easy around the house repairs during the first few months.
Summary: I aways had the problem of charging my Ni-Cd batteries for my old drill each time I needed to use it. With the Li-Ion drill doesn't happen any more. The batteries are always ready to be used. It is great how this battery keeps the charge for months even if you doesn't use your drill.
Skil 2895 cordless drill is everything I had hoped for.

Summary: It was an almost perfect replacement for my old Harbor Freight 18 volt drill which I have enjoyed for 12 years.....finally twisted the clutch out of it using a 1 1/2 " wood bit....then learned it isn't made anymore..
Summary: I bought this as a christmas gift for my husband so when it arrived I wrapped it and put it under the tree. To my surprise on Christmas morning when he opened it there was the drill but it was without the battery and a cord to charge the battery.
