Dave, when I was in the maint. dept. at work, they bought two of these drills from Makita,
and I was completely blown away by how tough they were. I'm not sure what they paid, but when I buy a new cordless, that is the one I'll buy
. Short recharge time, very light weight, and man oh man, the torque. Dang near dislocated my shoulder one night while drilling a 1/2" hole in a steel beam.
In a while, Chet.
