Bad product - 2 burned out motors with light use; appallingly poor reliability !

> Purchased January 2011. Charged batteries, checked out operation, and then did not use for almost 5 months. After driving a dozen or so screws and drilling a few holes - all light duty work - the motor sparked, smoked and died. I drove 25 miles to the nearest authorized service center (Santa Clara CA to Hayward CA). The service center accepted the drill as a warranty return. A few weeks later a replacement was shipped to me.
. 2 years later - the drill had not been used much, until recently it was used to drive #8 wood screws. Pilot holes were used (different drill) so the screw driving was relatively light duty work. After driving 65 screws (over several days)- sparks and smoke from the motor - AGAIN! The 2 year warranty is past - but I may be able to make a claim under my credit card warranty extension. BUT - why would I want another replacement drill with such a short lifetime?
> I had high hopes for this drill - but I have to absolutely recommend AGAINST buying one.

Pros: Batteries hold charge very well - for months ! Much better than NiCad batteries. Compact size, relatively light weight. Torque limits appear to work well. For light work loads - I have found the 1.5 Ah batteries to be adequate. - especially with 2 batteries provided with this product model.

Cons: > With only light work loads and short total run times, I have burned out the original drill, and its warranty replacement. One burned out motor is bad luck - getting the random defective product. Two burned out motors is a strong indication of an inferior, poorly designed product. > The chuck takes some getting used to - but it is never really good. This chuck requires two hands for tightening. Many other keyless chucks require only one hand. The chuck is so short, that it is tough to get a grip on it for sufficient tightening.

great for most applications around the house.

I love this drill. A little heavy for my small wrist but it gets the work done in good time. I am especially enamored of the 20 V. Li-ion battery that holds and holds and holds a charge.

Pros: It's power and ability to dial a torque setting for the job at hand.

Cons: The fact that it broke down after 6 months of sporadic home useage. It has been replaced by Lowes.

Excellent

I picked one of these up with carry case and assortment of bits and tools for 50 bucks red tagged at walmart. Couldn't pass it up at the price but even at the normal 70 price tag it would be well worth it.

I hear a lot of complaints about the adjustable clutch on this that prevents over torque. I find that feature to be of the most use to me particularly. I do a lot of smaller inside jobs with this gun. The fact that this will not over torque and strip out screws or over drive them into things is perfect. It has prevented a lot of problems I had with some of the other guns I have used that have harsh torque on them.

If you want a gun that will be delicate enough for fine work this one is the absolute perfect and pretty much only choice for that. But if you want a powerhouse gun that is going to really sink a screw in hard you should look at other models. I have the 12v firestorm. That gun is a better choice for more serious work.

Pros: Clutch prevents over torque which is perfect for more delicate jobs where over torque is a problem. All around great gun for light duty or delicate interior jobs. Works great for quick furniture assembly where power tools would normally cause damage. The price is unheard of for such a quality tool.

Cons: You must buy a second battery pack. This one only comes with one and to me that is a con. Most good guns come with 2 packs to allow alternating between charging. A minor con considering the price point.
