brutal power, very easy to handle nice design from top to bottom, love that you can rotate the batteries around, great gear ratios, hammer functions is always a plus, weight outperforms all other brands period!
May be it's just to much power for what you think you can do with it, because it will go and go and suddenly it's burned up, I went through 4 drill's in 2 years, the batteries are all dead, granted I did abuse them, but they should stand up their 5 year warranty.
What You Wanted to Know Before You Bought It:
What Would You Tell the Maker of This Tool:
they have to build in a safety for this tool to prevent it from burning before I (my mechanics) burn it, when you run a 3/4 auger bit through an LVL it should just stop on it's own and not kill the drill.
