Very nice.
My line of work doesn't always call for 18V, but when it does, I gotta have it. This provides it quite sufficiently. Nice tool. It stays on the jobsite.

p.s. Case is nice, too.

Great Drill and Great Company
This drill is very powerful, easy to use and a great value. I like the fact it came with two batteries which last a long time and a nice carrying case. I would definitely recommend this drill.

Be sure to get the newer red battery's
I would have given this a five star but the first two I received had the older black lithium battery's which upon receiving would not charge. Junk! The third tool I received had the red ones which work great. Great tool at a bargain price and I love the led light on the tool.

Tool is great, batteries are consistently defective
I previously had this impact driver, along with the original 1.3 Ah battery. Both worked great until they were stolen.

This kit seemed to be a great replacement. Unfortunately, both new batteries would not charge. I returned the kit, had a replacement kit sent out, and both of THOSE batteries were also defective (i.e. red flashing light on the charger when attempting to charge). I know the charger is fine because I tried it on both my old charger and the new one that was included with the kit.

By appearances, the new batteries also looked to be of inferior manufacturing quality than the original batteries that came with the tool. They also hold less power (1.1 Ah vs 1.3 Ah).

The fact that the second shipment appeared to be a return that was just turned around in the warehouse and sent back out to me was disappointing. It didn't appear that any quality check was done in the warehouse to make sure that a returned tool wasn't shipped back out to a new customer.

Can the LiIon batteries & the NiCd? batteries be interchanged on the PC tools, if they are the same voltage. I have an older drill & charger, but it is not LiIon, so I was wondering if I could use both kinds of batteries on both tools.
Mike on Dec 13, 2013
BEST ANSWER: When I bought my NiCad combo set, in the manual it stated they would work with LiOn batteries.
Are the included batteries LX type? Will they work on other PC 18v lithium tools.

BEST ANSWER: This drill has been discontinued and no longer available.
