    Poll: What kind of cordless drill-driver do you use?

    What kind of cordless drill-driver do you use?

    I have an 18v DeWalt XRP Drill/Driver/Hammer Drill.
    I have been very happy with it. The only down side is that it is a little heavy, but it does everything I have asked of it.
    I have only had Craftsman cordless drills up to this point, so I guess I'm just not use to the weight of a "real tool".

    You should have made that a multiple choice poll, I use Panasonic, Ryobi, Makita and Bosch

    Will the forum let you make multiple choice polls?

    I have a Makita 9.6v that I have been running for years and it just won't die. I have a DeWalt that is almost as old and is just now starting battery failure; the drill is fine.

    My main cordless has been the Hitachi I got on the Amazon $49 sale...

    Attachment 7875

    It's light weight, powerful and the batteries last.... It's been used a lot in my home remodel.

    I also use a tried and true Makita, but it's older and on the large size.

    (I can edit the poll votes, but not set it for multiple choice. Maybe Sean, the original poster is the inly one that can.)

    I have five - all 14.4 volt.

    The driver I use most is the DeWalt impact driver - not a drill.

    The drill I use most is a Fein.

    The others are a DeWalt half inch drill/driver, and a DeWalt close-quarters right angle drill, and my least used one is a Porter-Cable. I just don't like the P-C's balance as much as I do the Fein or the DeWalt. It's the oldest of the ones I have, and newer models of nearly all brands are much improved over it.

    Greg,

    I can't change any of the poll settings now.
    I think i'll just repost the thread with a new poll with multiple choice as an option.
