      Bought a combo kit about 4 years ago and use it almost daily. The XLT drill works great overall. It's high torque allows for drilling studs and joists with a 7/8" self feeding wood bit. There are some times when because of the number of holes or the hardness of wood I still need to grab my my corded hole hog drill. It's not good for drilling out a whole house but great for smaller projects. I did melt the internal part of the plastic trigger once with very heavy drilling. It's a pretty good one size fits all drill since its light and I do a lot if switch and plug installation. Just bought another non-XLT version of the same drill. It's even lighter and still drills studs and joists. The batteries hold up well. I've charged them hundreds of times if not a thousand and they still work pretty good although one went bad recently during the 5 Degree cold spell. I've owned 3 of the chargers and each of them give off a heavy arc when plugging them in. Not sure why they haven't fixed that. The head of the drill eventually got to where I have to spin it 180 degrees before it would lock in place to install a bit. I often wonder why people buy the cheaper off brand drills. It would be better to go without a drill for a while, save up for nicer one and buy a drill that's enjoyable to use and really packs a punch for power.
