My 10 year plus Bosch battery operated drill gave up on me. It's the batteries that can't be replaced.
I'm looking for a new one. Anyone have any suggestions. I don't mind spending good money for one that will last me as mine see a lot of use. At the moment I'm looking at a Dewalt 18V 1/2" 3 speed drill/driver for around $279. Comes with charger and two batteries. Anyone know if this is a good choice or of something better?
Here's the description: "The DeWalt DC920KA is an 18V Heavy-duty XRP Cordless Drill/Driver Kit. It has DeWalt built built high power, high efficiency motor which delivers 510 unit watts out of max power for superior performance in all drilling and fastening applications. Its XRP extended run-time batteries provide long run-time & battery life. It features patented 3-speed all-metal transmission matches the speed to the application for optimal performance. Heavy-duty 1/2 inch ratcheting chuck locks the sleeve to prevent bits from slipping and falling out."
Thanks in advance for your input.
BTW, I recently replaced my cordless screwdriver with a Makita cordless Impact screw driver and find it's an awesome tool. 150 ftpounds of torque plenty for bench use. Sears had a 50 piece accessory kit for $39.00 with every size and configuration of nut drivers and blades that makes it even handier. This one straightens out with a flick of the wrist, nice for one handed use.
