I regret I dont have a picture or model number for this tool. The image is a stock photo. It was a standard issue 1/2” corded drill by Porter-Cable. I was very unhappy with this product. It only lasted one job!, the swith in the trigger failed after minimal use on the first job (I was finishing a basement), rendering it inoperable. It was still under warranty, but due to lack of time, I had to keep working so I just bought a DeWalt drill from Home Depot to replace it. I’ve seen better results from tools from Harbor Freight. I know DeWalt and PC are corporate siblings, but PC is dropping the ball on general quality. (PC is always on clearance at Lowe’s). For small hand tools, I sticking with DeWalt
Hopefully, my experience was a fluke, but it soured me to Porter Cable. I have two PC routers that are great (the 3 1/4 HP and 2 HP multibase version) I willl review these soon. But I am afraid that PC has catered too much to the DIYer and not professionals in their recent offerings.
