WOOD magazine review

Smallest size, yet big on run time

Review Summary

The most compact drill in the test of 8 compact 18-volt drills and tied for second-lightest, it feels well balanced at any angle. Rubberized areas around the handle give even sweaty palms a sure grip. The speed selection switch operates stiffly, but the smooth pull of the trigger makes controlling chuck speed easy, especially in the slower range.
