I had a Bosch corded drill which lasted for many years. It would be good to get something similarly long-lasting, although I understand that a battery would not last more than a few years.
To my surprise I see Makita have some affordable products. I think of the name as relatively high end but do their affordable hammer drills mean that they are getting into lower quality merchandise?
A bonus would be being able to use the same batteries in other kit.
So, any suggestions for a DIY cordless hammer drill? Is there a sweet-spot for such things these days?
