How true. My DeWalts die in about three years like clockwork: but
after hard use so many other things are wrong with the drills that I
pitch them if they make 3. I feel like I got plenty of miles out of a
cordelss drill at 3.
But I have Sears "professional" 14.4 that I got off Ebay really cheap
from Sears as an "open box". ( I mean really cheap...) After 3 years
it works like it was brand new. Go figure. Outside of the fact that
it is a little uncomfortable to hold, it may be the longest lasting and
hardest working drill I have ever owned.
I had a Makita drill, a "high power" or some such baloney as that that
had batteries that wouldn't hold a charge for more than a day or two
when it was brand new. It was such a piece of crap I hated it.
I think about the only two that really seem to have the whole battery
useful life down solid are Panasonic and Milwaukee (which I understand
uses Panansonic batteries).
I really don't know of anyone that uses them day in and day out that
gets much more than three years out of the batteries, though.
