This drill is a great drill for beginers, to experts. It has a very high speed, and a great tork. The drill runs off of a 18 volt battery that is hard to get out. It's a pretty solid drill with a bit measures in the back part of it. The flashlight that comes with also runs off of the same battery. The one downside to this is that they both run off the same battery, and don't have any holder that comes with it.... The changer isn't the best, and the battery slips out of it while charging. Over all this is a good drill for beginners, and something to consider when on a tight budget.
