Comment:I compared the Dewalt XR with similar Milwaukee cordless drills. and hands down the Dewalt was by far the better choice. I used it on a large job and I was very impressed with it's performance and was glad I bought it. The Factory Outlet made the transaction very pleasant and I highly recommend them and would with out hesitation buy from them in the future

Most awesome drill I've owned
Comment:This is the KING of cordless drills. Light, but very powerful. I do want to warn you that this 1/2 Lithium Ion drill could snap your wrist if it suddenly got locked. It has torque that is unbelievable. We used it all day on 1 batttery. I never got to use the second battery. Brushless is the way to go. FactoryAuthorizedOutlet shipped it to my door for much less than the big box lumber SLOWES could even order it for.
