Working construction, I'm pretty demanding when it comes to power tools. I know what brands to trust for durability and effectiveness. That's why I usually trust the dewalt brand name. And this drill is no exception. It's about standard weight, so it won't be too draining on you for overhead work. Also the batteries last a lot longer than the older 18 volt ones. Also the hammerdrill feature on it is awesome for wood work and on thinner metal products. Easy to use handle is included, as well as two batteries to keep you going as long as you keep one charged all the time. Only drawback of course is with the dewalt name you pay the dewalt price. But in the long run its worth it to pay over 200 for this instead of 99 for a lower quality item that has no warrenty value. I personally used this to build a back porch and furniture in the house so it has got its money worth from me. I would highly recommend this though, and will buy more dewalt products in the future.
