Save time and your hard earned money with this cordless drill. Simply - Excellent. You can't beat the value per buck for this drill. We bought a whole bunch of IKEA furniture and this tool largely reduced my building time at least by half. It has variable speeds with the 'clutch' to avoid stripping the screw heads. It goes from 1 (loose coupling between electric motor to rotating head: ideal for screwing) to 15 (direct drive between motor and head: great for super tightening or making holes). It definitively has plenty of torque to be a 18V: I have made holes in the wood with this, heavily tightened screws in key joints, put screws metal vs metal. Battery life was sufficient for building my entire furniture set and for screwing and unscrewing all the family chores areound the house. If you are on a budget then this is a perfect drill for you. Excellent product.
