This is the drill for home do-it-yourselfers. The keyless chuck and easy-to-use power settings make this drill so simple my five-year-old could handle it. The extra battery is nice if you can balance the use of the drill with the recharge time of the battery. I am an avid home DIY'er and have not found a project yet that this drill could not handle. However, I have been on the construction job-site as well and do not think that this drill should be the contractor's choice. It is fairly bulky, but the 14.4 Volt power that you get from it should make up for the extra weight while using it. The LED light feature is perfect for working in those dark areas like under sinks and in closets. The price of this drill makes it very cost-effective and a necessity for any handyman.
