cordless drill

I am gonna get the old man a new cordless drill for christmas. He's had the same 18V DeWalt for many years, and was really happy with it and likes the name. I want a good quality drill that will work hard and last a long time, what are your takes on drills?

I have probably about 12-15 working craftsmen 19.2 volts, they work great never fail, good battery life. But i also have about 10 deWalts they also work great. But I dont think you can go wrong with any of them. I seem to think deWalts hold up better to nature. but the craftsmen is cheaper. so its preference.

I like my craftsman 19.2v cordless drill. In my opinion a drill is a drill. If I was getting my dad a new one I would look at those three piece sets. Craftsman has one out it has like 5 pieces, cordless drill, circular saw, reciprocating saw, jig saw, sander, a bunch of differnt things that run on the same batteries. But the kit I was looking at has the drill, circular saw, and reciprocating saw.

I kinda aggree with this. I think the big names Craftsman, Dewalt, Kobalt, Porter Cable, Makita, Milwaulkee are all about the same as for performance goes. I would stay away from Black and Decker, Skill, and the other ones that are sold at walmart, miejers, kmart and other stores though.

Go with a Ridgid from Home Depot. They are a well constructed drill and have a lifetime warrenty, even on the battery. Every drill I have ever had the first thing to go was the battery, it is usully cheaper to replace the drill than the batteries.

I work with a few contractors that have switched all there drills to Ridgid.

I like dewalt. 18V cordless was my best friend for several months when I was sub contracting a few years back. Never had a single problem with it.

ive used many drills for work... my most favorite but very expensive is the HILTI brand... they are super light weight with the same strength as the other brands... but i also own Dewalt and craftsman..... Craftsman i use for home use and the Dewalt for construction... they tend to last longer when used daily
