      This could well be the next F1 sponsers from the looks of it ....

      This is a 18volt version. There are other 'volt' version but this is the one I've used in the past.
      For me, this is a Kim Kardashound drill, something that relies more on its looks than its talent, and to be honest, this one looks a lot better than the Kardigan.
      It's go the 'sporty' look that you'd expect with an F1 car, having a more 'straight edge' style rather than the standard smoothness that most, if not all other drills of this type have.
      The battery sits at the bottom of the handle, like a size none shoe on a five foot woman, but even with this barge like shoe look the drill does still tend to wobble over when you try and stand the drill on it.
      The grip on the handle has a rubberised feel to it and it works well when it comes to drilling as my hand does not feel as though i'm gripping on for dear life in order to keep hold of the machine.
      The trigger and directional button are in the perfect places, easily reached by the trigger finger and the thumb, sliding the directional button over easily in order to get the drill to go forward of backward.
      On the very top there's the gear speed selector, forward for first gear, backward for second. Then, right at the front, there's the keyless chuck with the 20 torque settings on a ring just behind it. The torques are there to help you when it comes to screwing into delicate things. Set the numbers low and work up until you get the screw into the right depth, once you know the number you leave it there and away you go.
      You get a second handle with this one, which looks like a handle with a plastic ring around the end. This ring straps around the area just behind the torque ring, tighten the ring and the handle grips. You now have extra help when it comes to putting the pressure on in order to drill through that concrete wall in order to get to the banks safe on the other side.

      The cost of this F1 looking drill is about £100, which is not too bad considering the power and stamina you get, even if it looks a little like something Bob the Builder has strapped to his belt.
