The DeWalt XRP drills are built tough. The quality will last years. My drill has lasted me yea rs and i recently purchased another for a relative. The battery life is outstanding with the XRP batteries. The drill comes with torque control, and variable speeds with variabl e trigger spee d as well. The q uality is outstanding. the batteries last a very long time before needing replaced as does the drill. The drills can be a little pricey but are well worth the extra money. They will outlast and out-drill other "value" drills. I use the drill for about everything from fine cabinetry to cutting holes in OSB. The drill is a bit on the heavy side, but not enough to be an issue.I would recommend this drill to anyone doing serious/ longer construction of any sort. I love the DeWalt quality and cannot imagine buting any other drill in my entire life, and i will probable never have to.
