Well after about a year I have to say this drill is a bit disapointing. I suppose I should expect to get what I pay for. But now I have one battery DOA and one that is so-so So what do I do? one the one hand I don't want to pop $50+ each for 2 batts. But I don't want to have an orphaned drill. But again, That Makita Li-ion is looking sweet. And a friend is saying Festool Festool. . . . Festool. . . . . . .
