I bought this drill/driver for a deck for my daughter, my Ridged batteries were dying a fast death.
A side note on the construction. I bought a Hitachi 18 volt drill and ratched drill at Lowes for $229.00 before I went. Model WH 18DSAL
I charged up both batteries. Everything worked great. All joyce hangers, screws up to 3 1/2”, decking boards, facia boards stairs were attached with the two screw guns. It required an additional charge on each battry and a second charge on one more battery. One phyllips screw tip busted on the ratchet drill after a lot of pounding. and it was on putting in the stairs with the 3 1/2” screws.
I’m really happy with these Li-on set. It would run and when the battery was dead it just wouldn’t come on. So it was full speed and then nothing. If I was not aware of that condition we would have gone looking for bad switches.
Cabinetmaker said that his boss brought him a 12 volt set and he was pleased, so I bought this 18Volt set on his recomendation.
