Comment:
It's small size and weight are great when working off the ground or overhead. Also good in tight spaces. Has enough power to run in 3 1/2 screws. Sure larger tools with longer battery life are good but half an hour into the job your arms are falling off! Small enough to stow in an apron pocket with the screws. One Con is abrupt shutdown of battery, so carry a spare in the other pocket.
How long have you owned it:

Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

I Use The Drill To Sand L
Comment:
I use the drill to sand lathe turned projects like bowl, platters, pens, salt and pepper shakers and pens. it is light in weight with a great handle fit and feel and by charging one battery while using the other I frequently use the drill for hours.<br /><br />My only complaint is that the store (Lowes) where I shop plastic ties display items down and they can't be held. I spoke to employees and they either said that was how management wanted and some employees cut the ties or took tools out to let us feel them.I spoke to a manager and mentioned they were called HAND TOOLS but he said if untied they were stolen. I can't imagine anyone buying a hand tool without putting it in their hand.
