This is another of those 'standard' mains powered drills, only this was offers a little bit more than standard as this one has speed control which you don't normally find on a mains drill.
It offers 750watts of power in a well ventilated green plastic casing.
The drill is gun shaped with the handle being curved slightly to give a better grip. The mains lead slots into the bottom of the drill with the trigger, directional button and locking button nearer to top of the handle. The grip itself has a bit of a rubber feel to it which makes it easier to grip for those more stubborn jobs.
Along the top there is the speed control which, before you start drilling, you select the speed by turning the little dial, gaining speed as you go along the wider lines on the dial. In front of the dial that it the hammer drill option which a good drill should have. This hammer function helps push into the more hardened stuff like bricks and paving stones.
At the front, where the work gets done, there is the keyless chuck that grips the 14mm bits.
Just behind the chuck is the second handle which slots around the area behind the chuck and gives you an even better grip when drilling into concrete and the like. This second handle uses a butterfly screw in order to trap the handle in place. This second handle can be moved around the ring behind the chuck so that you can place it in a more conformable position. Also, along this handle, there is a depth guide, which is basically a long plastic rod that has measurements on it that slides through the hole in the handle. The idea is that this can be set to your chosen measurement and when you're drilling the plastic rod will hit the work, thus stopping you drilling too deep.
This was one of my better mains drills and really kicked the old proverbial whatsits... it has the power to drill through anything that I wanted it to, with no hassles at all, so long as I had a decent drill bit in the chuck of course.
But even with all that power it was still so easy to handle, especially as it had the front handle to keep hold of. This means that there is less chance of the bit wobbling when in the hole, causing the hole to be bigger than intended.
This drill is well worth looking into if you're after a mains power drill and as it cost about £80 it is well worth the money.
