    Probably not the right plac ebut I just had to tell.

    I got a surprise from the wife and her parents the other day. I have never been a big fan of cordless tools but man these things rock. The drill has been up to the tasks I have had for it and the sawzall well, I am surprised I haven't wore it out yet............

    Dewalt makes purdy good stuff. Our company has been using the 14.4 hammerdrill for bout 10 years now. And most of the time if they do break they're easy to fix. Just don't put the drill near your head when drilling, if it catches, it'll knock the p-turkey out of ya.:doah: :doah: :doah:

    Well I would have but their neighbor built them one while I was deployed. I think they got this for me due to me re-flooring their house last time I was in on leave.....

    Nice set. I use the 18 and 19.2v sears stuff on everything. You will be surprised at just how easy cordless makes things.

    The DeWalt 18V stuff rocks. Among other things, I've used mine to drill 3/4" holes through RR crossties when I was building my little wall. Only thing I don't like is replacement batts are more expensive than most. Lowe's usually has 2/$100 around holiday time.
