I said ok, give me your sales pitch, ,,, he showed methe new Panasonic,,, I would have never considered a anasonic befre, but OMG does thisthing kick azz....its 15.6 volts 1/2 indexed chuck, weights ALOT less than A Dewalt 18 volt and has more power, plus the battery lasts alot longer and was $100 cheaper to boot !!!!!!

    Dewalt, you can have them rebuilt by Dewalt for under $100-00.
    I have tried most of the well known brands as an electrical contractor have found the Dewalt best ,not only thru use but with service & the ability to rebuild over & over.

    Lightbulb Cordless Drills

    Tinkerboater: If I may chime in about your cordless drill search, all above postings offer pretty sound advice. I'd been a SNAP-ON Tools dealer for about 6 years, and own a 14v cordless drill of theirs, which has proven bulletproof. Good news: Not only a quality tool, but all kinds of other tools available for use with the same batteries; cordless impact guns, droplights, etc., all top quality. Bad news: Top dollar, and unless you're being visisted regularly by a dealer, your only option is online, and service would be tough to get. I have also owned a DEWALT 14v 1/2" drill forever, I beat the living garbonzos out of it, and it doesn't owe me a dime, so I would also recommend those. By the way--DEWALT is said to have heavier-duty components (gears, etc) than their Black & Decker counterparts, so don't let corporate ownership fool you. Also, battery voltage, I've been taught, determines length of charge more than it does drill strength. Finally, maybe PANASONIC does make a good product (as per earlier post), but be sure to get a drill from a factory-authorized distributor (including refurbs), because service of the tool is one of the most important factors to consider. Good Luck, sorry for the dissertation.

    Risky-the two of us should get together. I have a couple of Snap-on ratchets that need to get rebuilt.

    BTW-they are my favorite ratchets.

    WOW this thread went a lot farther than I thought it would.
    Thanks for all the advise. I think it is going to be a DEWALT 14.4 V
    Hey even if it ain't broke it's still fun to tinker with it.

    Push-N-Throttles on the site owns a tool rental and sales store. Maybe he can tell us which ones he fixes the most.

    I just got a great deal !!

    Home depot had a package of Ryobi on sale .Maybe still do .
    It is 18 volts .
    -IT has :
    -Miter saw
    -circular saw
    -saw zaw
    -roto zip
    -3 batteries
    and a big heavy duty case on wheels with a telescopic handle & the box doubles as a work bench for the mitter saw .

    All that for $399 . The tools alone are almost $600 if you buy them seperate plus the case !! My brother is a contractor and is hard on equipment . He has had his Ryobi saw for about a year and uses it hard . He said the battery is the only thing went bad .
