Rated 1 out of 5 by from disapointed it all started so a great looking little drill ,nice and light easy to use ,and to be fair very good for small holes (5 to 7mm max) then came the sad day when i asked her to do a little bit of hard work (4 x 13mm x 50mm holes ) it did drill the holes and then just gave up the ghost. A quick inspection found the problem a faulty stator/winding which i have just order, i will update at a later date but for now not great

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Kit As the title says excellent kit, does exactly what it should, came with the side handle and depth gauge. Not a heavy duty drill but for repetitive plugs and screws excellent.
