Might be 7 years then. I bought it shortly after I moved into my
current house which makes it 7 years. Sometimes I count badly. Mine
came in a kit with the saw and flashlight but the drill was available
separately. Best prices are this time of year which is when I got it.
Came with 2 batteries and both sat for years before I bothered to open
the box and now use it very intermittently and both always hold a
great charge after an hour in the charger.
It was more than $125, but the DeWalt 12V cordless drill my wife gave
me as a b-day present in Feb 1998 has held up extremely well. I'm
still using the original two batteries that came with it and they seem
as good now as they were in 1998. And I don't particularly treat them
well either .... sometimes when starting a project, I'll swap the half
depleted battery in the drill for the fresh one that's sitting in the
charger (rather than completely draining it first). Doesn't seem to
have affected the amount of charge they hold. Oh, and the battery
that is not in the drill stays in the charger which is plugged in
24x7. No worries.
I don't use the drill commercially but I have used it for lots of
holes and 1000's of deck screws. No complaints ... I'm happy.
A few months ago I bought a Craftsman 19.2 volt drill. I bought it in
there parts/repair department so it or one of the components is
refurbished in someway. It came with the drill, 2 batteries, charger,
flahslight (uses same batery as drill), a cordless scredriver with
charger (sausage shaped ones), two screwdriver bits, and a wide
mouthed canvas bag. Out the door - $98.00 and it is still under
