I have a DeWalt 18v hammer drill. You are not going to drill big holes
or that quickly, but it has been really handy on occasion for drilling
6mm holes for rawlplugs, etc. Don't pay a lot extra for the feature,
but take it if it is free...
THe chucks are so-so, at least for the price the sell for here. A
freind put a chuck from a Metabo drill on his DW, and it is a far
I also have the reciprocating saw (sawzall). Handy on occasion (such
as cutting ceiling battens when putting in grilles), but it eats
batteries and is limited in capacity. Handy, but a standard one would
be the first choice in most cases.
The battery connection and clips on the DW tools isn't that good. The
battery packs are heavy and they don't stand up that well for site
work. They also develop legs if you turn your back on them...
OTOH, for the price you (will) pay, it will be a gloatable gloat.
