I was in need of a new drill/driver. My 4 14.4 volt Makitas are down to one battery that only holds half a charge.
I could not justify spending over $100 to try out the Bosch, Dewalt, Makita or PC 12 volt lithium Ion drills. There was a coupon in the weekly flyer from Harbor Freight for their version of the 12 volt LI drill. For $35.00 I figured that I couldn't go too wrong in giving it a try.
I am impressed. This tool is lightweight, has tons of power and is very comfortable to use. I built my wife a platform for her washer and dryer plus a new outfeed table for my TS. Probably have driven over 200 1-1/4" and 2-1/2" screws with no signs of the battery wearing down. It would bury the head of the screws when attaching 3/4" A/C plywood into PT 2x4s.
The only downside to the tool is that the charger is quite large and the forward reverse switch is slightly awkward to use. Other than those two minor issues I can't find any negatives at all. Obviously I was pleasantly surprised. I kind of expected the chuck to wobble slightly or have problems keeping the bits tight but it was as good as any keyless chuck I've used.
Several of their flyers have a coupon for $34.99. I have several extra coupons if anyone is in need of one.
