Overview

Editor's Review: 18v Cordless Drills: Power to Spare

review date: March 1, 2003

This light drill has a comfortable molded rubber grip and comes with a full complement of slotted and Phillips hex-shank driver bits. It lacks an electric brake and comes with only one battery. This is the only drill that bogged down in our 32mm hole test, and it drilled only six of the nine holes in the 1-1/4-in. hole-boring test. Its battery combines with five other tools.
