Yes, but when it dies there will at least be enough weight in it to keep the back door well and truly open - unlike that lightweight stuff Bosch make :roll:

Don't know where you get your weights from, my Bosch 18vlt drill weighs 1.6Kg bare, add the battery and it weighs 2.2Kg, thats two and a bit bags of sugar to you :-) :-) Nos

My tools do not do the amount of work these days that they used to do.
Yet whenever I have had the need to replace I have tended to go for Makita.
As someone earlier said "they do tend to suit my hand".

Aargh, bargain drills are crap...
The culprit is a “Powerplus” sold in most DIY shops here, but I have seen it under various brands with different names and or colours.

A guy came to help me and brought along his PowerPlus “pro” Drill...
The thing can hardly drive a 6x80 flush, forget making the joint tight...
And after 20 half arsed screws, it slows, at 30, it gives up.
And forget doing 25mm electrical conduit holes!
My mini “home gamer” Metabo, chosen for it’s small size and low weight, can drive at least 150 screws on a 2Ah, do 25mm holes and even get anchors nice and tight.

And don’t get me started on the charger that gets so hot it should be classified as a fire hazard.

It really pains me that poor people who are trying get suckered intospending their hard earned cash into this stuff.
:angryfire:
