      An American name with American power and, sadly, a UK price tag....

      I was given this to use whilst doing a job, which lasted a few months, so i felt that i had used it enough to give you an opinion about it.
      The Li-Ion, (1.5Ah) battery takes about 30 minutes to fully charge from dead and, on average, lasts a good few hours of moderate use. And as you get a second battery with this package so you're never really out of power.
      The 13mm chuck is keyless with the 24 torque settings spread around the ring just behind the chuck itself. It has a 2 speed system with hammer drill option.
      The whole thing weighs no more than 5kg, with the battery weighing almost twice as much as the actual unit itself.
      When I first looked at this drill I thought it was a childs toy, with its strange torque feature and the way that the chuck sits back onto it.
      But it's not, it is a 'real' power drill and, even though it looks a little silly, it has more power than I thought.
      It is shaped like all other power drills, like a gun, with the battery on the base of the handle, the trigger near the top of the handle and the directional button just behind the trigger. Then there's the main body that houses the motor, which is where the chuck and the torque setting are. The speed selection slider is on the top and moves forward or backward, depending on the speed you want.
      The motor is fan cooled, (sounds like a dodgy Mustang from the seventies??!!), with the handle having a soft grip so that you get less blisters.

      The cost of this toy looking drill is a staggering £250 +, which is way too much for what you get. It may have the power and the stamina but so have many lower cost drills on the market.
      If I had to pay for this i'd wouldn't, i'd buy a cheaper one and spend the £100 i'd saved on a night out with the lads. I'd still get the same power and stamina from the other drill and i'd also have a few good memories to tell the grand kids.. .
