Top class drill. Only take 2 hours to charge and you get a lot of use approx 45 mins. Really impressed with the power and durability of the drill. Light weight but very well built, will recommend

I purchased this mainly to use as a screw driver to carry out some repair major work on my garden fence.
It is not too heavy or bulky (important for us women DIYers!) and I have had no problem using it to insert screws of various sizes (up to 3" into fence posts) without the need to drill pilot holes. It holds its charge well - unlike some other cordless products I've tried: is easy to use - adjusting torque setting or switching from screw to drill function is quick and simple. I love it!

Unfortunately, I'm having to send this item back to Amazon and have asked for a refund.

The drill worked just fine when we had it delivered in August of this year. However, a few days ago my husband wanted to use it again and the drill would not charge up. After 24 hours the drill remained uncharged and the charger plug was flat cold. We took it round to a local electrician for testing and he said it was emitting 0.07 volts of power instead of 18 volts. In other words, we could have had the drill charging until a week next Pancake Tuesday and it still wouldn't have worked.

The electrician expressed surprised at the 18v charger as they were very scarce and he hadn't seen one for a very long time. That's why I have asked for a refund. It is obvious that the drill relies on the charger and the charger is unreliable. I did phone Black & Decker Tool Spare Parts in Liverpool and they had one in - at a cost of £15.99. They were very helpful but that does seem excessive for a drill costing just less than £50. I decided not to risk it.

I think I'll try again once I've got a refund and, just to be on the safe side, will go for a corded drill.

very good piece of equipment, however it is a bit heavy
I also have the 14.4V model which is lighter and it does almost the same job
Overall I am satisfied

I bought this drill from amazon as it was by far the best price I had seen anywhere & as I have delt with amazon before on many occasions I new it would be good quality as well as value for money & it certainly was both. The drill is light & easy to use & has got plenty of power, (so my wife tells me ha ha!!) ideal for any DIY. I would recomend this to family or friends. Delivery was very prompt as allways, thank you amazon!!

Very good drill/driver. Nice price and a good powered drill, could do with hammer action but other than that I would recommend for most DIY jobs.

For the price this cordless drill awesome, far better than i expected!!! Since purchasing this drill i have built a timber stud wall and timber subfloor as i am converting my garage into a cinema. The drill has worked great so far and even works well on a short charge(30mins) the drill is that good i've even purchased another as a christmas present for my dad. Cheers Amazon, proper bargain!!!!! :-)
